Today's Flowers - Tree of Gold

The Caribbean Trumpet Tree Tabebuia aurea are filled with golden yellow trumpet shaped blossoms now. The trees are planted in parks and in roadsides, giving the city a festive look.
The tree flowers sporadically all through the year, but in spring, it bursts into its full splendour.




The tree itself is rather small, and gnarled. Its bark is deeply furrowed, giving it an ancient appearance.
Today is Holi, the Festival of Colours, in India. Happy Holi to all my friends and visitors!
My thanks to the team of Today's Flowers.
