Gypsy Chant House Tree

After about 3 hours searching the internet, I found my tree.

It’s leaves look like the Royal Poinciana Tree or known as the Flamboyant in the Caribbean where I became familiar with it. Our roads were flaming red certain times of the year.

The pods look like a rolled up Flamboyant pod. We would paint them up and make shake-shake’s out of them for rhythm instruments for the kids.

I haven’t seen the flower yet so I can’t tell you what it looks like. (Well I have seen pics)

This tree is why I bought the house, or was it the bamboo? I can’t really remember anymore. Definitely was feeling the vibe of the place due to the majestic girth of this tree.

So what is it you ask? Well…its…the…

This is just too easy if I tell you. I worked so hard to find it and a few presses on the computer keys and it is all over.

Lets play a game. I show you pictures of the leaves and pod and you guess what it is.
