Blooming Friday

little yellow flowers of a tree in our yard


These are the yellow flowers of a tree in our garden. I don't know the name of this tree (we "inherited" it from the previous owner of the house) but it's golden yellow flowers are a delight to see (hmmm... this sentence has a good rhyme to it... maybe i should try to make a poem out of it *winks*).

when the flowers turn into seedpods

When these flowers are pollinated (bees love them), they give us these seedpods that usually burst when they turn brown. And right now, we both have seedpods and flowers that sway gaily with a passing breeze and scintillate when they catch sunbeams.


And speaking of sunbeams, i wish everybody a nice sunny weekend. A week from now, it will be the June solstice and summer will be in full swing in our part of the hemisphere *smiles*.

Wow - I've never seen such a tree before. The flowers and seedpods look a bit like peas... Very pretty flowers!
I wish you a sunny and lovely weekend!

i'm still trying to look for the name of it... my guess is, it's a type of flamboyant... hope you'll enjoy your holidays this week :)...
