As in strong evidence here, the yellow tabebuias have started 'popping' all over town! These are definitely my favorite (I know I say that about all of the pretty flowering trees), but I love the tree bark and the random nature that the branches stretch out from the trunk...and then there is this burst of yellow trumpet clusters. Though they may look like they send out a powerful scent - they create none, so you'll just need to continue using your imagination! ;)

Technically, imagination may be focused on the visual sense , but it can easily extend into the other senses. Imagine, if you will, the kitchen of your grandmother as she bakes may 'see' her in that space, but do you also smell the incredible aroma? Can you hear the bustling and can you almost 'taste' that loaf before it's ready to be sliced? You may even touch that sense of nostalgia, love, and optimism! Ah, the power of imagination. If only we could tap into it more often! Golden Gate Pkwy & Goodlette-Frank Rd, Naples, FL


  1. Love these shades of yellow! How uplifting for the spirit!

  2. WOW! I think this is the brightest, and sharpest flower photo I have ever laid eyes on. Pretty yellow.

  3. Wow, it looks like a tree full of sunshine. I can't believe they don't smell. I think I'll use my imagination too.
