Pink Avenues – Nature Tuesday Challenge

This is one of my favorite places to walk around. Come November these trees are loaded with flowers  which go on till February. It is just amazing to see the road spread with a carpet of petals. I have enjoyed walking here for years when my older son was at the university. I am hoping that my younger son would make it there to so I could visit him often and enjoy a few more years of this scenery.

This beautiful tree is called the pink trumpet tree. Or Tabebuia Rosea. After the rains when the dry cool weather sets in the leaves drop off partially and some trees start to bloom . However the best time to see these trees would be in end of January or early February. These are short trees 25-30 feet in height and  with a beautiful umbrella shaped crown.

Planted on roadsides these make the best walking stretches or promenade roads as they are called. Planting Tabebuia rosea and Jacaranda together is my idea of a dream promenade avenue.

    • I had to google Peltophorum to see what it is, we call them the copper pods. I used to see a lot of those trees in my childhood, but I guess the other trees like jacaranda and pink and yellow trumpets have taken over the place.
