Fire Tree at Salagdoong Beach

While walking around Salagdoong Beach, I found a fire tree across their restaurant.  This tree has always  amazed me since I was child, especially when all the leaves have fallen and gotten replaced with fiery orange flowers.  

Seeing it in Salagdoong Beach was all the more surprising to me as this tree only blooms during the summer season and yet, at this month (February), its fire tree is already bearing flowers.

Below is a zoomed-in shot of its flowers.  

Interestingly, when I surfed the Internet about fire trees as I was doing this post, I was directed to Flame Tree where it gave Royal Poinciana as this tree's English name.
