The Royal Poinciana Annual Red Dress Ball

May 31, 2010

I just adore this time of year on Grand Bahama Island. Everywhere you turn there are bright bursts of flame red flowers atop wide canopied treetops dotting the landscape — so regally red and naturally elegant — it’s the annual blossoming of the Royal Poinciana trees, and it’s spectacular, even amidst a landscape known for its lush and dazzling tropical flora!

Passion-red petals abound at every turn …

… fancy-dressed arbors everywhere …

This splendid annual show starts somewhere around the middle of May and continues for a good month or more. It’s at its peak right now.

This gorgeous annual Royal Poinciana Red Dress Ball — free and open for all to enjoy — is a May/June extravaganza that twirls the landscape with delight as nature shows off some of its more flamboyant stuff.

Just makes the garden of your heart dance, doesn’t it?! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy …
