Orangey Blooms



I found this flower at the altar in Baby's house. Somebody got them from the top of a tall tree in the neighborhood. Too bad I did not see the tree and too bad I did not get the name of this plant as well. One thing I know, it is absolutely gorgeous and rare! And the next time I go there I will find the tree and maybe ask the owner for the name of the tree and maybe some of the flowers as well! ;-)
My orangey blooms I share with Maia at MacroFlowersSaturday and for TodaysFlowers of Luiz, Denise, Laerte and Sandy! Have a happy weekend!

UPDATED: Bernie identified this flower as Spathodea Campanulata or African Tulip Tree

I was going to ask what sort of a flower it is, but if you don't know...
I love it, though! The shape and the colours are so unusual! My favourite shots are the ones where the light is coming through the petals!!

You always have to share some interesting flowers from your parts.
They are gorgeous indeed and probably specific to your home, I've never seen them, not even in pictures.

These are the flowers of Spathodea campanulata or more commonly known as the African Tulip Tree. They are such a distinctive colour and shape.

This flower looks like a giant eating thing. Venus fly trap or something like that. Very unique, thanks for sharing.
