Tabachine: Flower of the Day, July 20, 2017


A few days ago I showed a different color of tabachine.  This is the more usual color—and my favorite.  Butterflies love them.  So do I.  Although my gardener calls the small bush varieties of the poinciana tabachine and the large tree varieties flamboyan, sites on the internet call the larger variety both tabachine and Royal Poinciana and this smaller variety a dwarf poinciana.

Copa de Oro: Flower of the Day, July 19, 2017

Click on first photo to enlarge all.  I love the juxtaposition of the frilly gold flowers next to the stark cacti. This house has been being built for years. Glad they planted their wall vegetation early.

Tabachine: Flower of the Day, July 17, 2017


This is such an unusual color of tabachine.  They are usually vivid yellow and orange.

Love them against this vivid fuchsia wall.

Jade Plant Blossoms: Flower of the Day, July 12, 2017


Love this pink bud stage even more than the white blossoms on my huge jade plant that came to me from my friend Chuy, who led us on many fine adventures before he departed this plane.  Chuy, you come to life again every time this gorgeous plant blooms.
