Flowery carpets

Northern hemisphere has the wonderful spectacle of fall colors painting the leaves of deciduous trees and I often wish to be there to experience it again.
But here in my subtropical climate there is a different type of fall: flowers from blooming trees.

The hills are dotted with plashes of colorful trees: purple, yellow whit the occasional orange and red one.  In some places the roads and parks are covered with the falling flowers carpeting the grounds.

The flowers don't last long: the sun and heat of the day shrivel them up to then be replenished overnight again till blossom is over in a few weeks.
