What a brilliant color. That's a tree isn't it. It must be breathtaking to view in person. Hurray! Hurray!
Thanks for sharing it with us folks up north who do not see these beauties.

I remember when I first saw these in Trinidad. It was the start of a lifelong dream of becoming a painter someday. I still haven't taken any steps to make the dream come true, but I'm only 70. Hilarious!

I was there in 1964 and 1965, Hetty. Could we have run into each other there?

I thought you might have grown up there. I met some Dutch families from Java there.

Thanks for pointing this out, it is delightful! I have a vague recollection of hearing it before but wouldn't have remembered if you hadn't mentioned it.
