I’ve recently taken to photographing the tree that our calle is named for; Las Guayacanes. During the dry season, the tree sheds its leaves, but it will rapidly turn green again at the start of the rainy season. There a different varieties of the Guayacanes tree in our region, the most common are the rosea variety but there are also some yellow ones seen throughout the campo. The flowers, whether they be yellow or pink are a trumpet shape and open up around February/March. The flowers stand out in stark contrast to the leafless limbs. I think this makes the Las Guayacanes one of the most beautiful things of the ugly dry season in the campo.
