Yellow Bloom of Summer

This photo was taken today at noonish next to University Avenue and the "Church of the Crossroads" - United Church of Christ. The "Gold" tree, also known as Tabebuia donnell-smithii, Bignoniaceae, and prima vera originated from Mexico and Central America. Its flowers, a yellow tubular blossom replaces the leaves as it blooms. The wood from this tree is used for cabinet furnishings. Press on the two thumbnails for close-up and yellow carpet perspective respectively.
Happy Good Friday!

Hi Kris -

Changed the template code properties to accommodate larger image in its design.

Use photoshop to resize the image to 600 x 450.

After uploading the resized image using Blogger, go into the HTML code and add a width property into the image tag: width="600"

Hope that makes sense =)
