During this time of the year lots of trees flower in Caracas with dense yellow flowers. Today I found four examples of these spectacular tress within three blocks in Altamira. People always say these are Araguaey, the national tree of Venezuela, but there are two tyes, Araguaney and Acapro. It’s hard (at least for me) to tell them apart, but Araguaney is not as tall, seldom reaching more than 20 meters. Above four pictures of these beautiful trees at their most spectacular time. My guess is that only the lower one on the right is a true Araguaney, the remainder were taller than 20 meters.
