324: Sunlit tree branches
Not all trees keep their green leaves, also in a Brazilian tropical winter. From March – early autumn – the green leaves transform into warm red, brown and yellow colors, and begin to fall. This process can last all winter, even in spring, as is the case with some trees. For many, it is also a great surprise to see blooming trees all year long. Trees with white, pink, purple, red, yellow, or orange blossom. Especially the golden trumpet tree: yellow blossom is a real eye-catcher in winter. The tree is then a large ocean of bright yellow flowers, but without a single green leaf. On the other hand, there are certain trees that are completely bare in winter: their sun-lit branches form a beautiful contrast with the clear blue sky, with only a few clouds on the horizon.
