Key West Flora

These are some shots taken while driving about in Key West. This is a banyon tree, and those hanging roots will touch down and become another tree connected to the mother tree.

The red flowers are the Royal Poincianna tree, another common Keys tree.

Bougainvilla spills over a wall, the tall palm is a royal palm and the corner tree is a Norfolk pine, planted for masts.

Different colors of bougainvilla, and some other tropical flowering plants.

This is so typical, and colorful. The square things are crab traps. The floats hang from almost everything. I had them hanging in my silver buttonwood tree when I lived in Little Torch Key, as well as orchids.

Just thought you might like to check out the flora as I usually go for the fauna.

I love the foliage in the Keys...Colorful like the people who live there.

I love those houses on the road with the second floor porches! I bet you miss it.
