Mother Nature’s Tropical Artwork

Our first walk in Key West led us to find these beautiful tropical flowers (they had fallen below the tree just as you see them here). Apparently they are from a Pink Bombax, Shaving-Brush Tree, this deciduous tree is native to tropical Mexico. The tree is mostly leafless this time of year, better to see these pink beauties.

They start as an brown/yellow banana shaped bud (below-left) which peels down to reveal the pink “shaving brush” flower within. Just one small reason why we love tropical Key West.
