In the National Capital Region, a highly urbanised metropolitan, seeing flowers randomly is almost impossible for decades now. Thus, when we went to Ilocos Norte, Philippines a few years back, I had the opportunity to see these beautiful Yellow Bell flowers growing in the home that we went to. This was the first time I saw a Yellow Bell up close, I’ve only seen this in school textbooks.
Here are a few photos I took.
