Tabebuia rosea, aka Rosy Trumpet Trees, are now in full blossom. Located in Beitun District, Taichung, Sanjia Park is engulfed in pink Tabebuia rosea, which is indeed very romantic!

People often compare Rosy Trumpet Trees to pink marshmallows hanging up high in the sky as well. You might even mistake them for cherry blossoms from afar.

When the breeze blows, be prepared to be stunned by the pink petals descending from the sky.

Is it snowing in Taichung? Actually, it’s just the falling of Pascuitas. Whenever Pascuitas, also known as “Snow Flakes,” are in blossom, it indicates that Christmas is around the corner.
