The white blossoms of the trumpet lilies peek out nearly of any flower vendors basket throughout Hanoi. This is the scent associated with spring time and especially with April in Hanoi. Trumpet lilies are the symbol for purity, rebirth and ‘Springtime’.
Talking to some of the photo enthusiastic groups who visited Hanoi in the last month and who I had the opportunity to show sometimes around the most recalled and mentioned scene has been the city flower vendors.
Each morning you can see a bunch of women coming from the surrounding flower villages peddling into town with their bikes and bringing fresh flowers and nice scents into town.
As there are four seasons here on the north Hanoi is well suited for the growing of different types of flowers.
