Silk Floss Tree, San Juan Cosala, Mexico
I have driven under the huge tree that sits in front of Pasiano’s house thousands of times over the past 18 years and only today did I notice that it is a shaving brush tree! One of my favorite blooms and the only one I’d seen before was in La Ribera in Baja California. I stopped the car, backed up and got out to take a few shots. Amazing what we can overlook so close to home.

This huge African Tulip Tree (Flame Tree) shades the entire courtyard at the Chapala Society, but from where I sat, I could see only two blooms at the very top–20 or 30 feet above me. This is one of them.
