    Just wanted to share the colour on this tree, not sure if it comes out too clearly though. Last week it was devoid of leaves and blooms, this week however....

    Also known as Stink-foot due to the unique aroma that comes from the seed pods when opened.
    As Andrew Zimmern put it.. "Tastes like anchovies and fish sauce mixed with molasses"

    "Tastes like anchovies and fish sauce mixed with molasses" - not sure if that sales pitch would sell much. :)

    But your pics prove the tropics do have seasons.
