Chinese Flame Tree Triptych!

Since my September 11 post on my beautiful Chinese flame trees (aka bougainvillea golden rain tree and Koelreuteria bipinnata), several of the paper lanterns have matured into the larger-sized pale peach-pink colored gems that I’ve come to know and love.  It’s truly a treat to see these trees fill up with leaves and paper lanterns during the warmer seasons.

Click on the close-up photo of the paper lanterns and I think you’ll agree that these paper lanterns, in the warmth of the summer sun, are things of great natural beauty, as are their precursors, the intense yellow flowers visible in the first two photos. Shine on!
