When Poui Trees Blossom

It may be the bohemian, free-spirited,  flower child in me but  things that bloom capture my attention!  You can blame my mama for this attraction to blossoms, she simply cannot resist picking flowers, they're always random buds in her hand bag, desk drawers or between the pages of her books. It really is slightly annoying!

While I can resist the urge to horde actual flowers I do end up collecting their photos! One of my favorite times in Trinidad are those awkward few weeks when we're on the verge of leaving the Wet Season behind and jumping into the Dry Season.  Yes, the random scattered showers are quite annoying but the when the poui trees begin to blossom... I am left in awe.

These are some photos that were taken a few weekends ago.  The first set features three poui trees that are residents of the university campus while second set are random shots that Alain and I got in Port-of-Spain while searching for the biggest poui tree in Queens Park Savannah.  Yes, my idea of fun is tree hunting! Luckily Alain entertains my weird quirks! Old, historical building are also a love of mine so here are a few that we found while tree hunting!

Hope that you enjoyed your Easter holiday!
Much Love
