cherry blossoms

I always imagine about our thimphu city being embellished with abundant ornamental trees, that would add beauty and glamour to already natural beauty that our city area possess. There are many trees like cherry blossoms, maple, dogwood , etc that are really exquisite and refreshing. The flower of this plant creates a picturesque surrounding and also scent the air with sweet fragrance. For instance in japan the cherry blossoms are widely grown, these trees bears flowers which so magnificent and literally paints the sky in different colours. Similarly if we can introduce those beautiful plants to Bhutan , it can really facelift the beauty of our place. Particularly the capital city really needs some diverse trees of aesthetic essence. Given our climatic conditions similar to that of japan and korea where cherry blossoms are grown extensively, we can seemingly grow this in the thimphu valley or elsewhere.
Some of the possible location in thimphu where we can plant those splendid trees are road edge of the  babesa express way , way to the kuenselphodrang, and on the outskirts of the town as well. Currently thipmphu city has very common trees all over the places. Basically there are only willow trees and cypress , although beautiful but they hardly flowers. If we look into the road to Buddha point there are only pine trees, which is virtually mundane and not so refreshing. Suppose if we edges of the road are planted with maple or cherry , then the surrounding will look amazing and it would add more splendor to the magnificent Buddha. Furthermore it would serve as a perfect rendezvous for taking stroll and clicking photos etc. its good to see that the paro- thimphu highway has been planted willow trees stretch, although it  will take some time and care for these plants to properly stand with full elegance.
Today our country is appraised for its natural beauty and forest coverage. Its imperative for us to maintain and conserve these gifts of nature, but it is still important to enhance the existing beauty by introducing more trees form elsewhere; breeding more diverse varieties of trees etc. everyone would cherish and embrace the new scenario with beautiful trees everywhere.if we can do this, then we will set an another paradigm for the world to envy for.
