Color Burst Again-Amaltas Aglow !!

“Come lets paint the town yellow!”; conspired all the Amaltas trees in City Beautiful Chandigarh. Sure enough the city is bathed in a vibrant yet very pleasant golden shower of flowers on rows and rows of the beautiful Golden shower trees, also called Amaltas or Cassia Fistula. A feast for the eyes and a balm for the senses, the beauty of the flowers is a talking point and a much desired distraction from the intense summer heat. Flowering is at its peak from mid May to the beginning of June. The ornamental amaltas flower is much revered in the Indian subcontinent, especially in Kerala, where it is the state flower. Also, its the national flower of Thailand. For me , I’m just content to have several of these trees landscaping the wide roads of Chandigarh, adding to its beauty and enhancing the green cover. Here I share with you some pictures, clicked on a lazy summer afternoon which got a new lease of life with this view! Its almost as if the city is in a jubilant mood.
