dpc, lovely colours. Coincidentally, I took pictures of another flower whose colours were a bit darker than than the ones you took.
I will post them in a bit.

There are cannonball trees very close to my place of work. I think that the flowers are pretty and fragrant. Here are some pictures. I could not get the whole tree as all the trees are really tall. They are mote than 20 meters (60+ feet) tall and there is no place to zoom out with my feet :)

Here are some pictures. You can look up this link for more details on the tree:

The cannonball fruit - now you know why the tree has this common name

Apparently the fruit is not edible nor good for carpentry. I kind of figured the first part on looking at it :P
