Spring in South Florida

For those of you in South Florida, are you wondering what's the name of the tree that's currently in bloom with the big, yellow trumpet-like flowers.

It's the Yellow Tabebuia, native to the tropics but quite popular south of Lake Okeechobee. They're beautiful trees this time of year, but have shallow roots and go down even in tropical storm force winds, therefore plant with caution.

Ask Val about the Royal Poinciana tree flowers falling in his pool.
