Flame of Forest

retireediary

This is the season for the blooming of the Flame of Forest.

This morning, I have a delightful walk along the seaside promenade garden in Tai Po, Hong Kong.IMG_1960 (1)

My walk took me past this Flame of Forest tree. There are many around in the area while I was driving there.

These photos are captured with my smartphone; so please don’t expect them to be of very high quality.IMG_1962 (1)

I have always like these trees in full bloom.

In Winter, they shed all the leaves and the trees become bare.IMG_1964

This time of the year, they are just like a flame , on tops of the trees.

Understand that’s how they got the name – people looking from afar thought the trees are on fire.IMG_1961

What a beautiful fire!
