Baguio Landscapes

These photos were taken in Burnham Park at the height of the Baguio Flowers Festival. By now, the blooms of the flowers have already faded and the amazing structures have already been vacated but the meomories of these beautiful landscapes will definitely linger to those persons who have been witnesses to these excellent showcases.

And as I look at these photos, what comes to mind is an age-old adage that a thing of beauty is a joy forever.











With this I end my "famous places in Baguio" series. I hope that in my next posts about Baguio, I could feature the City's not-so visited places or those off-the-beaten-tracks. Ciao!!!

  15. @ the dong - the first and last photo were taken at the orchidarium just beside the bike alleys while the rest of the photos were taken in the skating rink. too bad wala na yung mga landscape sa skating rink pero baka andun pa yung iba sa orchidarium.
