Also known as the Flamboyant or Flame Tree. Now blooming profusely all over the lakeside, including this one in my yard.

Bottlebrush Bloom: FOTD Mar 30, 2021

Just before I saw the rattlesnake today, I snapped a photo of this gorgeous flower in my sister’s yard–or perhaps it was her neighbor’s. They join together along the arroyo that runs behind them both.

Does anyone else see the face in this photo?

Duranta Erecta (Verbena): FOTD May 21, 2020

I had never learned the name of this flowering tree that I planted 18 years ago, and I thank Grace at broadwaymatron.com for telling me its name. I don’t know why it photographs as  blue as it is actually a dark purple. Perhaps too much sun. I like this blue color even more than its actual color, so I’ll support the illusion. Although the description calls it a bush, it says it can grow to 20 feet high. I think mine is about ten feet high–maybe higher.

FOTD Apr 7, 2020

I have been forgetting the name of this tree for a good 15 years or more. It is hidden away among other trees and plants and it is always a surprise..

These trees have been blooming all along the route from Ajijic to Colima. This one was photographed on the road between Comala and Colima.
