Flame flowers of "Malinche" (Delonix regia).
And with cashew nut pods (Anacardium occidentale).

I have n.e.v.e.r. seen this flower before...ever, such beauty!...nor have I ever seen what the pod of a cashew (my favorite nut!) actually looks like. Thank you for this treat, Catherine ;>}}

Christi, I love cashews too!

Neki, yes,they do that here as well. They also eat the fruit and make a syrupy desert with it. I think its disgusting, and the sap is kind of caustic!

Arlee, Hurray! Now you can post :) But oh crap! Now I can't respond to individual comments :(
