A riot of red

Around this time last year, the view from our balcony became quite remarkable - the gulmohar tree whose branches touch the walls burst into bloom, transforming itself into a veritable riot of red.
Its happened all over again this year, albeit about a month later.

What a lovely sight to behold when you open your balcony with those red Flame of the Forest blooms!

Such a familiar tree in my area of the world. Not only are they a common sight in gardens, but they pop up in the surrounding bushland as well. Here, though, we commonly call them Poincianas. I just love that one white petal!
