Poui Blooms

There is a local saying: “When the Poui blossoms appear, exams are near.” This seems accurate as many secondary school students are preparing for CXC exams. The spontaneous and sporadic appearance of brilliant golden yellow and pink throughout the hills of the Northern Range indicates that it’s the eve of exams and students should be ready.

For the rest of us not preparing for exams, this bright and beautiful revelation is a sign that the dry season is nearing its end and we prepare for rain.

We are especially fortunate to still have the opportunity to enjoy the blossoming of our Poui Trees here in Trinidad and Tobago.
