Poinciana Memories

 

 

For Cee’s FOTD

I found this poinciana flower from the tree in my front yard pressed between the pages of a notebook given to me by Judy Reeves. Thanks Judy. (I put the flower and scribbles there.)

Royal Poinciana Tree Abloom FOTD, Apr 25, 2020

I can’t seem to get a photo that does this Royal Poinciana tree in the front yard of my house justice. The sun was too bright this morning. I’ll try again this afternoon.

It’s only negative feature is that it is messy when the petals begin to fall. Here they are, above and below. Click on photos to enlarge.

Royal Poinciana: Sunday Trees

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.
