Nicaragua - People and places: Malinche

Malinche




This time of year this tree, called Malinche, flowers into some of the brightest orange flowers you have ever seen. Actually, by July these flowers are almost gone so I wanted to share them with you.

This tree, named the Delonix regia, is nattive to Madagascar but can be found in many parts of the world. You'll see a lot of them here in Nicaragua.
