Kibrahacha Trees

There are quite a few Kibrahacha trees blooming this week.  But there are just as many that haven't popped.  So, if we have another dry spell and then heavy rains in say, July, we might be treated to a rare second Kibrahacha display.

I think I like it best when the Kibrahacha tree is really spindly, with blooms like Christmas decorations, scattered along its bare branches.

Here is another look at a bare branch sporting delicate blossoms.

And then there are the big bushy trees, bursting out with color amid the muted olives and grays of the usual Bonaire flora.  This shot captures it fairly well, although sometimes the contrast is even more pronounced.
