Mosaic Monday - Plant Envy

Yes ... I covet!  This is one tree I would love to have growing in my garden ... but I don't.
It's in my neighbour's front yard and right now, it's in full bloom!  Such a grand sight - Colvillea racemosa.
 For other great Mosaic Monday posts, visit Mary at Little Red House.

  1. Really lovely and such a vivid orange color. It his tree related to the mimosa tree? We have some here and the blossoms are salmon in color. Thank you for stopping by and your kind words. Wishing you well! Cathy

  2. Very lovely and special plant in your mosaic. It is always interesting to see what people have in their gardens in other parts of the world. And you live in quite another climatezon. Also you have so many beautiful plants in pots. Thank you for visiting my blog.

  4. What a beautiful tree Bernie. Those plumes of blooms must be heavy hanging down.Glad to hear that your rain has stopped for now. You sure do have loads of pots but they came through well for all of the rain you have gotten.

  5. That is a neat looking tree. I like the picture with the parrot in the branches.Are the fruit edible or just for the birds?

  12. GrandmaK ... Hi Cathy! Thanks for dropping by. The Colvillea is related to the Poinciana, but not to the Mimosas.

  14. Hi Eileen ... yes I'm lucky as I get to drive past this beauty every day on my way to work. It looks magnificent at this time of year ... not so magnificent when it drops all its leaves however.

  15. G'day Hocking Hills Gardener ... yes, finally the rain has stopped. It's been hard on the garden, but most plants have come through fairly well. I can't wait to finish the potting ready for the coming winter and spring.

  19. Curbstone ... you're so right. It is a stand-out tree ... the photos don't really do it justice. It is the most gorgeous orange colour.
