Another busy day, mostly cloudy, and all eight children are at various stages of a not-so-nice head cold. However, there was opportunity for a late walk. Yes, almost too late and the light wasn't good but I want to share these with your anyway.
As the jacarandas are finishing their glorious flowering, now there is a bright Christmas-coloured display of poinciana trees in some streets around town. The poinciana is a native of Madagascar and seems to thrive in our climate.
While I hope to capture more poinciana photos soon, in better light.......at least I was able to capture the moon between poinciana leaf fronds as I headed home before it became dark.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Dear greetings Karin
The light is still very good.
You shared some beautiful scenes today.
Such lovely captures -- as always! Love the colorful trees and beautiful skies! Thanks for sharing the beauty! Hope all the children are healthy soon!
Those poinciana are gorgeous!
I so love your photos! Love how you compose everything. Thanks for sharing and the visit too.
Gosh - I hope your whole family feels better soon!
I love these shots! Your country has such different and colorful trees!
Oh, I love those beatiful trees! In Brazil they were called Flamboyant. Thanks for sharing this.
Have a nice weekend!
So nice to see everything blooming and alive and colorful! Hope your children feel better soon. My, I can't imagine how much work goes into 8 children, much less when they're sick. (((hugs)))
This was a beautiful series of pictures!
wish you a nice weekend!
Lovely captures, especially looking through the archway up the street with Jacarandas in bloom, and the shot of the moon is fabulous. Thanks for sharing. (p.s. hope the family get over their colds quickly!)
I love these photos. I think it's great to get flower and greenery photos at all hours of the light. Beautiful.
That was a beautiful walk !
The poinciana trees look wonderful.
Love your moon shot.
Your photos are always so beautiful and full of color. I just love them.. These are no different. They are breathtaking..
Nice flower in the first shot and it never too late!
Wow, you live in such a beautiful place! That first shot is just stunning. Hope the kids get better quickly. You have a good weekend, too.
These are beautiful!
i love this tree-lined street--beautiful flowering tree.
It may have been late in the day but it didn't prevent you from getting some fabulous shots. I love the one through the archway.
You are so lucky to have these trees. I have only seen them in Hawaii in flower and it was beautiful.
The trees definitely take on a beautiful Christmas look!
Hoping that all the children are well soon. Bless your heart. :)
Beautiful pictures, those trees are just lovely.
Late visiting from Today's Flower. Come see the Lilies at my page when you get a chance. Have a good week.
I love half moon! I love your photos. =) Greetings from Finland!
Very nice and impressive colors! For a minute there I thought you were posting from Florida since you don't have any snow. Our weather is just getting nice here. Come check it out at www.forgottencompass.com

I love my walks with you! We see our moon between snow ladened boughs...
