Same Tree Different Season

Here are two pictures taken from my home – they show the same tree but at different season.

They belong to the family of Delonix Regia; but commonly called Flame of the Forest locally, although I believe they have different names in different geographies.CIMG3003

The one taken in Winter is striking – it is all bare with branches only; dripping to the ground.

The other one with flowers is taken today. I believe it will have more flowers in two weeks’ time.CIMG7828A

In any case, there is a striking contrast!
