When I noticed this tree blooming in the butterfly garden next to the Visitor Center, I wondered what it was.
The flowers are like nothing I had ever seen before.
It is the Coral Bean tree. And here is where it gets its name--from the red beans in the seed pods.
But I do recognize the Prickly Pear Cactus flowers. They are just starting to appear here.
I wonder what new blooms we will see next week.
