Yellow, where are you?

There is rain, rain, everywhere.
And no yellow.
This is what I miss most in July and August. Rainy weather comes with red flowers- flamboyant, red gingers and costus. And the dry always brings the yellows - shower of gold cassia - my favourite tree..... So I am taking a walk back through the colours of March. Shower of gold dendrobium.......
Crotons are spectacular all year round but during the sunny months their colours really become magnificent.

Poui - the yellow poui does not last very long. In fact when it is in full bloom it seldom lasts more than three days but it makes up for its brevity with its heartstopping beauty.
I am definitely a dry season girl.
