Flame Trees!

These trees are brilliant. They’re Peltophori, but better known as flame trees. Here’s why.

They range from small

to very big

And they have different reds- some are orangey

And some are scarlet

And all over Northern Uganda they’re in flower now!

    The pics are amazing!! I have been to Gulu once but did not see the trees. It is amazing how we Ugandans are seeing different parts of our country through your lens. Good job.
