It's that time of the year, the jambeiro trees (Eugenia malaccensis) are blooming again. They put on quite a show with their brightly colored flowers, which come to paint the ground below. Although not native of Brazil, people here adore malay apple trees (I think that is the English name) because of the fantastic shade provided by them. I have a friend who compares the tree to an air conditioner because the temperature is always much cooler under the dense foliage.
