Yellow

Is our prompt this week at Our Beautiful WorldI.  I have been looking for unique shades of yellow you may enjoy while visiting our beautiful island of Puerto Rico.
Among all the thousand shades of greens you will see at our National Rainforest "El Yunque"
you will get the show stopping hue of yellow in a perfect, giant heliconia named
Caribbean Yellow
it can grow to 14' high, towering, impressive and beautiful!

these are the golden leaves of the " caimito" tree, the leaves have two colors and the fruit is delicious

here is a yellowing leaf from the star fruit tree, the lavender blossoms are the ones that will bear the gorgeous star shaped fruit
 
the mighty oak, full of blooms, not a leaf in sight


the flag of my hometown, with the mountains in the back
and a curious fiddler crab,  in a lighter shade of yellow
 
 
to finish this sweet yellow post a gorgeous yellow sunset!
 
Can't wait to see your yellow!!!!!

I love Puerto Rico already!.So many exotic flowers, fruits & beautiful things to see, I would easily feel at home :). The starfruit tree brings sweet memory to me, I used to pick the young, sour star fruits for my grandma, she used them to clean the fish!. That heliconia is gorgeous!!. I've posted many varieties of heliconias one time on my blog :).

Oh wow, so much yellow! The "mighty oak" in bloom must be a wonderful sight, it looks amazing.
