Seeds that have lain dormant for eighteen months are bursting into instant life everywhere.
I don't know what they are - the millions of pepper seeds that litter the ground under these trees haven't yet joined the rush to germinate - but the air is washed and fragrant with the perfume of pepper trees, and flowers are everywhere.
These white ones are pepper flowers.
The estrelizia is looking great,
roses and hibiscus and frangipani scent the air,
As the song says - "It might as well be Spring!"
