Oh, wow! This is absolutely stunning. So colourful. Was lovely to see the flower, but to see the whole tree, is something else. ;o)

Lindalooloo:

I have posted many African Tulip trees pics on GoY over the last 3 years. It's one of my favorite trees.

Here's more pics if you're interested:

Thankyou Andy,
Just had a look. I can see why they are a favourite of yours.
They are stunning. So bright and cheery.
Loike the gold but the red is stunning. :o)

You're welcome.

It's especially cheery when I see them blooming in the middle of winter. Although, there's a lot of tropical/subtropical trees blooming in San Diego in winter.

Must be beautiful to see.
All we have here in Winter, are bare branches mostly. lol.
No, we do have a lot of greenery, but a lot of our trees are deciduous. :o)

Yes, it is...I love our winter-flowering trees!

I figured most of the tree in your part of the world would be deciduous. I guess the exception would be the conifers. :>)

Yes the Conifers stay green, but not really much else.
We have family in Estonia. They visited us in the middle of January, and they were saying they had not seen the sun since November, and probably wouldn't see it until March.
They were amazed they could see so much green here.
We had had snow, and it was still cold to us, but the snow had already started to melt, but we did get some sunshine, and they were so excited to see it, it's hard to imagine what their winters are really like. :o)
