Poinciana your branches speak

Speak to me of love.  This Magnificent tree is now in full bloom.  Absolutely spectacular dotting the streets of Lake Worth.  So beautiful that a song has romantacised it.  Date of full bloom is guessed at, to make plans for the Royal Poinciana Festival at the Kampong “National Tropical Botanical Garden” located on Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove, Florida.  Trolly tours take you into Coral Gables, Coconut Grove.  Artist strive to render it.

These are our Lake Worth trees.      DSCN9867 DSCN9854 DSCN9876 DSCN9872 DSCN9871 DSCN9869Song Lyrics

Poinciana, your branches speak to me of love
Pale moon is casting shadows from above
Poinciana, somehow I feel the jungle heat
Within me, there grows a rhythmic, savage beat

Love is everywhere, it`s magic perfume fills the air
To and fro you sway, my heart`s in time, I`ve learned to care
Poinciana, from now until the dawning day
I`ll learn to love forever, come what may

Love is everywhere, it`s magic perfume fills the air
To and fro you sway, my heart`s in time, I`ve learned to care
Poinciana, from now until the dawning day
I`ll learn to love forever, come what may

Poinciana

The oldest known Ponciana in Lake Worth is located in Royal Poinciana neighborhood.  We should really have a Poinciana Festival  here in Lake Worth.  They come from Madagascar and were brought here by David Fairchild.  Fairchild Tropical Gardens also located in Coconut Grove on Key Biscayne .
