For some the arrival of summer is marked by the rising temperatures and humidity, for others it’s marked by end of the school year. For me it’s not summer until the Flamboyant trees paint the island in vibrant red, orange and yellow blooms. The Flamboyant, also known as the July Tree, is our National Tree.
Our wetlands and ponds, once vital and integral part of the economy are now being filled and polluted. Although they are no longer used for industry they still play a vital role as nurseries for many of the island’s wildlife as well as natural drainage. Pictured here are 4×4 tracks on a bird nesting area.
