Tabebuia again July 5, 2015

The forest has lit up with patches of yellow—the Tabebuia trees here are blooming. Since we’ve had rain five days out of the last seven, I was really confused. I even checked whether the trees were really Tabebuia. Someone told me no, they were cortez amarillo, and I became even more confused. A quick check of a tree guide cleared things up: Cortez amarillo is the common name for Tabebuia ochracea and whichever name you call it, the tree blooms at both the beginning and end of the dry season. Normally that would be in April, but this is the most rain Palo Verde has had all year.
