In spectacular bloom now are the Royal Poinciana trees. Their bright orange blooms emerge in early May and continue through mid June. They are not as popular as other tropical trees in Florida because they are barren of foliage during the “in season.” But year round residents have the pleasure of their beauty. Photos were taken at Cabbage Key, about 15 miles north of Sanibel and accessible by boat.
