What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

Red Royal Poinciana Trees in Accra?

Thought that would get your attention! Actually, there are many of these trees in the capital, Accra, and they bloom around May, when I took this picture--way back in 2005.

I'm unsure of the name--can anyone enlighten me?

15/8 update: Thank you, Ann! (from: These are Poinciana Trees)

I believe that is the Royal/Red Poinciana tree. We have them here in Jamaica as well. They are spectacular when in full bloom, aren't they?

For me that's what makes the tropics. Our tree is 20 feet from the backdoor and little tiny leaves and larger petals cling to my shoes and release as soon as I get into the house. My wife never faults the tree or the location (I planted it in that spot), but I get told about my dirty shoes.

Ann--many thanks for visiting! Have corrected it accordingly!

tog-many thanks for that intimate anecdote; helps put things into perspective. We are blessed, though, aren't we for these trees?;-)
