Oh, this has to be the biggest Fiddlewood tree in the landscape I have ever come across. The interesting thing is, throughout most of the year, this tree retains its old orangey leaves for a long period of time, and I just love the magnificent autumn view it provides to me.

Everytime I see it, I imagine a major street in Singapore planted with rows of them and wonder how beautiful it would be. It would look just as strikingly eye-catching when planted as an avenue in a park when the leaves take on this fall colour and I look forward to the day when this happens anywhere. If I am not wrong, this usually happens when the weather is drier.
