It has been raining all week this week... Drip... drip... drip...very depressing. And I am blue because three of my computers crashed! So you thought I gave up on you? Not a chance! This tree seems to love being wet and it looks better in the rain than when it's hot under the sun... so here it is, your Bursera simarupa, commonly known as the gumbo-limbo and Copperwood. It is a tree species in the family Burseraceae, native to tropical regions of the Americas from the southern Florida through Mexico and the Caribbean to Brazil and Venezuela. A gumbo in rainy days.
