The primavera and jacaranda trees are blooming profusely all around lakeside. Here is a primavera tree snapped quickly while on the road.
What comes after the flowers fall away is this.
I love this photo of the inside of a papaya I bought here in Sikeston, MO. It was not only full of potential flowers, protected by a perfect star, but also gave a hint of the flowers to come in the dark outline of a flower that surrounded the star. Nature is incredible in its plans and artistry.
This is a photo of a real bloom from my papaya tree in Mexico.

These glorious trees are still blooming all over town. I want to stop and photograph every one I see, but usually resist.

I had to pull off the road to snap this beauty. I’d passed it at least four times in the past week, thinking every time that I had to photograph it. This time I did so, shooting against the sun with my iPhone 6 as my beloved Canon is recently deceased and much-mourned. I actually got 4 or 5 views from different angles that I liked, but I think this is my favorite. The much larger Royal Poinciana Tree at the front of my house hasn’t come into full bloom so far, perhaps because the electric company had to take a machete to it since it was growing too close to the wires. I think the trees at lower elevations than mine are blooming early this year and very abundantly. I’ve seen several others I want to capture as well.
For Becca’s Sunday Trees, a bit late this week.
The scientific name of this tree, native to southern Mexico, is as surreal as the bloom. it is pseudobombax ellipticium! More commonly known as the shaving brush tree.
