When I lived in Central and South America, these lovely red flowering trees were common. I called them Firecracker Trees. It is actually a Ceibo, the national flower of Argentina and Uruguay. In English it is commonly called a Coral Tree or Cockspur Coral Tree. It is interesting how seeing a familiar flower or tree will bring back memories of times long past and how certain views have become fixed in my memory. After almost 50 years, I can still see the beautiful red flowers.
