Yellow Caballero

Caesalpinia pulcherrima, Dwarf Poinciana, Caballero
 I have posted the red/orange variety here and the pink here.  I found yellow ones, too.  


"Time doesn't always heal:  it just breathes and swallows memories like the seasons change---sending showers; beating flowers into the mud.  And nothing is forever in this place.  Nothing but the way my heart fits in your hands; the held breath of hope."

i love these. there were two or three trees - big trees - that produce these blooms in the plaza of the town where i grew up. the ones they have are in red but still i have fond memories of the caballero. is it the same as the april showers?

Luna Miranda said...

@ Photo Cache, the golden [april] showers is a different tree. i love those, too. yup, flame trees are usually seen at the plazas, side by side acacias.:p

What i know as caballero is the big tree, unlike this which is a bush. The big tree is Delonix regia, while this is Caesalpinia pulcherrima. Kaya nga mahirap pag common name ang pinag-uusapan nahaba ang references ng mali sa internet! haha. For this Caesalpinia pulcherrima, I have the orange and the pink but no yellow.
