Yesterday we had a couple of unexpected visitors – a pair of bats.
They looked quite big. I don’t know what kind of bat they are.
Last year we had a single, smaller visitor.
Bats in Phimai.

One colourful tree that has been in bloom in Phimai this month has been the Royal Poinciana (Latin: Delonix regia /Thai: หางนกยูงฝรั่ง – peacock tail), also called the flamboyant tree or flame tree due to its large bright red/orange/scarlet flowers.
