My flamboyant trees have started putting on their annual show around the garden. I have two reds on my property and one yellow I planted at the entrance to my driveway on my neighbours' land. I have planted another yellow on my property but it is still young and maybe it will flower next year. I plan to plant another two or three around the property when the rainy seasons starts. The flamboyant is also known as the Royal Poinciana, Delonix Regia, and flame of the forest. All around the island you can see flashes of red, orange and yellow along the roads, through the tree tops, in church yards and schools and hotels. It puts me in a good mood and I haven't been in one since my dental surgery last week. Today I had the stitches out so am feeling better and with all that colour in the landscape am smiling from ear to ear :-)). We had some rain last night and more is predicted.
