TREES OF BELIZE: SHOWER FLOWERS

GOLDEN SHOWERS
Click on photos to enlarge


My sister Becky and I went to Belize City yesterday. The day was extremely hot and humid, along the highway we stopped at this beautiful yard to take a picture of this tree all in bloom.


I have never seen this plant before in Belize, and now that it’s the blooming season, they are everywhere enjoying their short term glory. The name of this plant is “Golden Showers”. Becky is really into her plants and garden in Belize. She moved from the US eighteen months ago and loves every bit of it!


One of the charming things around Crooked Tree Village this time of the year is the many little gardens that people have in their front yards. I love exploring each little corner by foot or bike.
