Summer is one of my favorite times on St. John for many reasons.  One of the most important is the frequent tropical showers.  Right now we are green and lush and the Flamboyant trees are blossoming all over.  These blooming trees have their bright red/orange blossoms for weeks at a time and jazz up the whole island.  I have been trying to grow a flamboyant at my house in Rendezvous for 20 years and have finally achieved success.  My  2 year old tree has blossomed this year for the very first time and I could not be happier.  An over flowing cistern  is a pretty good second on the happiness list.
