Trees: Madre de cacao, gliricidia sepium

Unfortunate that the soil in DSB in my sister's farm is acidic! But madre de cacao is a legume tree which thrives in acidic soild and is useful to prevent soil erosion!

The following photos of flowering madre-de-cacaos are from Patag,Silay.

The following photos were taken at Salvador Benedicto.

I havent seen them (Salvador Benedicto specimens) flower, but I hope to photograph that when that happens.
