Blodyn and Buzzbee - I've honestly no idea - I love the countryside and plants but know very little about them from a technical point of view. Can anyone else help?

Wow...! what a great shot. It's so vibrant ! Oh.., by the way, incase you're still wondering, (someone's probably already sent you a private message telling you what it is...lol),it's a Caesalpinia Giliesii, Bird of Paradise Shrub.

Yes , Caesalpinia gilliesii syn Poinciana gilliesii , has several different common names, glad to hear you've figured out which one is most used in your area.

Just the name sounds like it has quite a history...
