Yellow Flame Tree

yellow flame tree Delonix regiaThis Yellow Flame Tree (Delonix regia) is in my neighbor's yard in Gualo Rai. I know of only three other such trees on Saipan, one in San Vicente, one in Navy Hill, and one in San Roque.

The one in San Roque is a much brighter yellow. At least it was a year ago when I visited Missy; she lived on the same hill. It was the first time (and the only time so far) that I've seen a yellow flame tree. I want to see it next to a really vibrant deep red flame tree - the kind of red flowers that show up after a particularly dry season.

actually, my dear, I emailed you a few yellow flametree photos I took shot of back in 2006. They are located on the Marianas High School Campus:)

I just noticed today that the one in San Vicente is in full bloom! I know I've seen it bloom before, but I don't think I ever realized it was a flame tree. I'm going to try to take a picture as we drive by tomorrow.

No problem, anon.
