Fields on Fire!

Hi everyone, Happy Sunday to you! it is the beggining of a brand new week and a new prompt for you to think, photograph and share with us over at
This week word is July! What does it means to you? Maybe 4th of July, Fireworks? to me it's the full blaze of summer! We don't have marked seasons here in the Caribbean but we do get our share of beauty and bounty in nature too.  Summer is the time for mangoes, bread fruit, quenepas, tamarind, all sorts of yummy fruits we wait for summer to bring.
But we also get blooming trees, flaming beauties like the Flamboyant tree!
They light up our mountains and valleys and fire up the roadsides with their flaming beauty

They are a sure sign that summer is upon us and are a sight to behold!
They have a particular way of growing, like cascades around the mountains

and up close and personal they are GORGEOUS!!!
the lighter petal you see is white with speckles of red
 

A total tropical paradise, a feast for the eyes,  a sure sign July is upon us!
I can't wait to see what July represents to you my dear reader, do share with us!!!
