When I saw this I knew I had to share it with you all! These incredible beautiful trees are right in front of our home....and what a joy of life it has been to us! Our daughter said to me yesterday that these trees are so beautiful that she had to stand still and take time to take in all the beauty.
This tree is called the "Royal Poinciana tree" (Species name: Delonix regia) and is native to Madagascar. The most striking characteristic is its brightly colored flowers that range from bright red, to orange and even yellow.
Because of the bright colors of the flowers this tree is sometimes also called the "flame tree".
I hope you enjoyed these gorgeous trees!
