Flamboyant Tree

The last days of May trigger the beginning of the painting of Miami in hues of red, orange, yellow by the royal poincianas. Unfortunately, it is also that of the new hurricane season which officially arrives June 1st, in 2 days. In order, these nasties will be named: Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gustav, Hanna, Ike, Josephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana, Omar, Paloma, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky, Wilfred. Sally is my favorite name among these. Did you notice the names alternate in gender? Which one is more ferocious? Boy or Girl, I wonder? I do hope I won't have to blog about any of these babies this year.
