Peltophorum pterocarpum

Peltophorum pterocarpum Golden Poinciana
Golden Poinciana trees are a common sight here in Florida. Above is our truck parked in the filtered shade. There are about 50 of these trees in the Bray Park where Bob flies his RC planes



If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled? 

Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?




If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked

doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged,


models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and dry cleaners depressed



See Bob and his RC planes below

Yellow never used to be on of my favorite colors but in recent years....I find my self loving it. I have always loved yellow houses but now I can add yellow flowers to my list! So bright , like the sunshine....makes you want to smile and be happy. Looks like a fun outing. Glad Bob is having a good time with his planes.

Great jokes today, especially the onety one. But the star of the show for me is the trees. Beautiful, and a spot of sun all over them. I think we have nothing like this, I have never see one. HOW did Bob let you snap him?

Ann said...

Bob's got flying buddies I see

I didn't know Poinciana could be yellow (gold) also. Beautiful flowers.
Good to see Bob and his buddies having a great time.

Deranged cowboys! You are too funny, cracked me up. Those trees are gorgeous with the yellow blooms on the bright green. I love your first collage.

Looks like Bob and his buds are into some serious discussions on the flight plans.

What gorgeous trees. All those words make sense to me. I giggled as I read some of them. Hugs
