Brilliant Red Deigo Blossoms in Okinawa
A trip to the northern areas of the island was made to check on flowers today.
Deigo flowers can be unpredictable from one year to the next.
When the leaves sprout, the flowers quit blooming.
Some people will tell you, the earlier they bloom, the stronger typhoons will be for the year.
Just a few meters down the highway, another large tree, didn't bloom at all this season.
This seemed like the only show in town so, I shot at different focal lengths.
It's best to photograph these blossoms now, because they may be gone after the weekend.
A typhoon named Noul is blowing around out there somewhere.
It could easily, blow all the deigo flowers away !
The trees blooming are right in front of Tsuha Elementary School in Ogimi Village.
