Flame Trees

The flame trees have been blooming on Guam the last couple weeks. Joyce thinks that this is one of the best years for the flame tree blooms, so today we went out to take some pictures of the trees. We wonder if the "bloom increase" has any connection to the fact that we are also seeing more birds, or that maybe it is just because we have not had a typhoon hit Guam since 2002. This flame tree on the left is in Tamuning behind the Lone Star Restaurant. The one below is in front of the Alupang Beach Tower hotel. I took it from the car window as we drove by on Marine Drive. It is great to see the beautiful red blooms back again contributing to the tropical color palette of our island.
