The Unchained Blossom

The UNCHAINED BLOSSOM.

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. Henry Beecher

It was past twenty in the hour of nine in the evening when the van that we were riding bound to El Nido stop over Taytay, a town in Puerto Princessa. The driver needed to fix the flat tire. It probably took us to stand by the highway for almost thirty minutes. While waiting for the van to be fixed, I took a quite walk along the sideway. I noticed that the area was a total darkness, no power supply to light the residential area and neither no street lights. My cousin Shalom told me so that electricity is only supplied to the town area is up until seven in the only. People use with it and so when the sunset drives most of the residents were already sleeping. Kinda weird, at these present times who would have fallen asleep by seven in the evening.

Just when I noticed a glow hidden inside a fence made of wood. I was scared though. I took a step closer to check it by myself. I saw a yellow trumpet flower struck by the shade of the moonlight. And when I captured it using with a flash, several of  them glowed. They exhibit a sparkling yellow  color. 

Yellow bell -Tecoma Stans, also known as hardy yellow trumpets. They are botanical flowering tree mostly seen along down lane and courtyard. These flower are common to garden and few landscapes in the local.

FYI. Tecoma Stans is the official flower of the US Virgin Islands. Also the floral emblem of the Bahamas
