It’s poui season in some parts of the world as the spring equinox has started. The flowering poui trees from Ocho Rios, St Ann; the University of the West Indies, Mona in Kingston; the photos/videos all over social media; and even bits from Tokyo, Japan is proof enough that the seasons have changed.
The yellow poui blossom has become a social media phenomenon, really. Just about every other video or photo shared lately has been some variation of a poui tree blooming in their grandeur.
As seen on Twitter:
We’re in the first week of spring and call be na?ve, clueless, or out-of-the-loop, but I’ve never seen so much love for blooming poui!
This video was recorded along Main Street, Ocho Rios. But, other snaps have been captured in Kingston (Mona, Long Mountain, and Liguanea environs), and in every place, there’s a poui tree on The Rock.
Yes, many appreciate the splendour of the trees, but to see them shared and re-shared among our peers, could mean optimism is at an all-time high.
Or, is it that many are inspired by the grandiosity of the blooms – even our Trinbagonian counterparts have shared their pink pouis.
