We have a tree over our cabin called the Cortes tree, and it erupts in brilliant yellow flowers once a year for two or three days. Then the flowers fall off and make the ground beautiful for a day or two, and then they dry up altogether.
This was the Cortes tree on March 29. If you look closely, you can see two toucans in the branches in the upper left.
This is the tree same tree on April 9. Beautiful.
Here it is from a greater distance. It really is right over our house.
And here it is today. So sad! We have to wait another year before this flashy tree shows off for us again.
