I posted a yellow form of Poinciana last June 16th. Today's picture is the common color form with a perfect silhouette. In June they were flowering all over the city. Then in the last week of June and the first of July we had torrential rains and the Poinciana trees lost many flowers and buds. The show was cut down to a whimper. Now after two weeks of very little rain the Poincianas are starting to bloom vigorously again. The Poinciana is truly the signature flowering tree of Coral Gabbles.
