Yellow Poinciana Different LOOK

Yellow Poinciana tree with its new dress on. After the yellow blooms come the rosy colored pods.

These two trees are in my neighbors yard, when I step out my front door, this is what I see. If I had paid attention, I would have a shot to show you the red and yellow together. Now that is beautiful. Half the blooms yellow and half rose colored.
Close up shot of the pods in my front yard, we have a tree, but it is only about 6 feet tall and still low enough I could get to the blooms.
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. Rachel Carson
The day I see a leaf is a marvel of a day. Kenneth Patton
this was written in 1897, imagine what he would say today.

Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day. [Uncle Vanya, 1897]

I hope you saw my comment from yesterday. Sometimes I don't get to my blogs till bedtime, so it was late. This is a magic tree, isn't it? What a surprise,and how wonderful. I would hardly have believed such a thing. God is the ultimate creator, and when He created us in His likeness,this is something of His that He has given us. I agree that it's too bad we do use it to destroy.

Lucky you to have such beautiful trees around your home to enjoy every day. That amazing trees also look spectacular in their new dress. All the quotes are great. It is amazing that the last one was written in 1897.
