This gorgeous tree beside my house is the "Ipê Rosa" (Tabebuia pentaphylla). It may be seen called Pink Poui-Rosea or just Pink Trumpet Tree. Pink Tabebuia will bloom on and off through all the warm months and into the fall for larger trees. Some trees lose most of their leaves prior to blooming. Tabebuia consists of about 20 species and occurs in practically every Latin American country.


  1. Hi Sonia. Welcome to the world of blogging! Good luck with it! I hope you find blogging to be enjoyable. Linking me is ok!

  2. Hi Sonia,
    I have added your blog to my list of blogs and will visit regularly. I would be honoured to be linked with you

  3. Congratulations, Sonia, on your brand new blog! Your home is beautiful. I look forward to reading more!

  4. Sonia, I am delighted you now have a website. And what a truly gorgeous home you have. I will put you in my blogroll and hope you will add me to yours. I look forward to hearing your stories from Sao Paulo.

  5. Hello Susanne, Mary and Lorianne!
    Many thanks! I am so happy with yours fast and nice answers! Warmly, Sonia.

  6. Hello Fran!
    Thank you so much! I am very happy with your speed and nice answer, too! Warmly, Sonia.

  7. Hi Sonia, what a beautiful tree! Thanks for giving its botanical name. I believe it actually grows here in Phoenix, I should plant it!

    What a brave woman you are to write in your second (third? fourth?) language.

    Have fun!


  8. Sonia, welcome to Blogland. I saw your link at Lorianne's and copied it. Your home and that tree are gorgeous. My daughter-in-law spent a year in Brazil as an exchange student and she went back last year for a visit. She would move to Brazil if she could!

  9. Sonia,

    It's fantastic that you are now blogging. I love your big pink tree. We had something similar at my mother's house which we sold last year. It was a tulip magnolia. You can see pictures of it at:

    You're certainly welcome to link to View from the Mountain. I'll put a link to your blog on there tonight.

  10. Hello Nancy, thank you so much for your compliment! It's not easy to me write in English, so my Blog will be principally a Photo Blog! Warmly, Sonia.

  11. Hello Kenju,
    Thank you so much! I appreciate your compliment! Great your daughter-in-law loves Brazil!Warmly, Sonia.

  12. Hello David,

  13. Hi Sonia!

    So glad you're blogging -- and in English too! I have added you to my "favorites" list -- and promise to visit often! Yes, please feel free to link to my site. Love your photos! Such a beautiful place!



  14. Felicitações Sonia! (No, I don't really know portuguese, though I once went out with a handsome Azorean guy!) Beautiful house. I look forward to reading more.

  15. Wow! That is the most comments left on a brand new blog. Sounds like the arms of the blogging community are wide open to you Sonia. I absolutely will be coming back to see all that is happening in you neck of the woods.

  19. HI LYNNE, LESLEE, MARIE, LIZ, BECKY and BRITT-ARNHILD! Many thanks! I am so happy and also honoured with yours compliments! I am anxious because I am writing in English and this is difficult to me. I will do my best to handle this Blog.
    Warmly, Sonia.

  20. Hi, Sonia! What a lovely home and surroundings you have. I look forward to seeing more of it in photos and reading your very interesting descriptions!

  22. Oi Sonia,
    I have many photos of the blomming Ipê tree I took in Londrina, PR last winter 2005. I never saw a tree bloom in winter and without leaves until I saw the Ipê. Very beautiful.

  23. Thank you so much Harvey for your visiting and compliment. Did you have a blog or a site? May I have your http?
