showing off

i call this a Coral Tree.
they are Erythrinas
a flowering plant in the pea family. 

and at the moment they are showing off
with their magnificently bright flowers! 

(for some reason the beauty of the whole tree is difficult to
capture in photo)

below is the evolution of the flower:

from the bud 

through the blooming 

to the full bloom

to the decay 

and the transformation into these peas/beans looking pods

below is what they look like in the end. 
in summer the dry bean opens and releases 
bright orange "lucky beans".

the legend says we should always have 3 "lucky beans" 
in our wallet for good fortune and abundance!
