Looking down on palm trees and flowering trees

I mentioned yesterday that some of the trees have red flowers at the tips of their branches. Here is a closer view of the same trees shown yesterday.

I took these photos several photos months ago during what we call the "green season." During January - March some trees will turn brown and drop their leaves because we get almost no rainfall from November until April. Of course, that is fine with the tourists who enjoy the warm sunny weather during the cold months up north.

We are showing photos of Chicago at night on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

I remember those red flowering trees very well!

Those bright colored blossoms add a bit of dash to the foliage!

The flowers are pretty as well as the lacy greenery. I am surprised about the lack of rainfall for such a long time. I wouldn't have guessed that. I learn so many things on my favorite blogs!

I always seem to be down there during dry season, will be again this year. But...someday I'll see the wet and green season.

Lots of places seem to have the same boom or bust weather, so far as rain is concerned. My part of Florida gets some rain most afternoons in the summer, but it is very dry in the winter, just like down there.
