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.

For Cee’s Photo Challenge.

Hibiscus del Oro: Flower of the Day, Apr 20, 2017


I didn’t realize I’d caught a visitor until I started cropping this shot.


Golden Shower Tree ( Cassia Fistula) : Flower of the Day May 26, 2016

I found two of these gorgeous long clusters hanging down from a tree near the entrance to the house.  Yolanda says it has been there for 14 years, but I have never noticed the blooms before.  How could this be?  It is so shaded by the Poinciana tree that it hasn’t leafed out below.  This bloom cluster was higher up where it could get some sun.  Amazing.   It has a long skinny pistil that curves up. If you click on the photos, you’ll be able to see it.  Thanks to Gaya for identifying it for me.
