This week's Blooming Trees.

About a week ago, I posted some pictures of the Brazil wood trees in bloom. Here are a couple other trees that are beautifying Bonaire these days.

The Wabi, a type of Acacia, was blooming back a couple weeks ago.

I find it interesting that such a nasty bush/tree has a pretty phase.

The Wayaka in front of our house is blooming like crazy this week. There are lots of bees buzzing around it too. This tree is pretty large. We have some smaller Wayaka(s) on the side of the house and in the back, but they don't flower as I recall. They do stay green year round, which is great.

There is a fruit of sorts that appears after these flowers. It is kind of pretty too. We've seen humming birds around this tree in the past, but not yet this year. Posted by Picasa
