Raining gold 1

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 26 May 2017 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Before the rituals of installing the Flag Post started, we went around the Temple and my eyes were drawn to this tree with the beautiful golden blossoms. There were three such trees in this Temple. These Golden blossoms ( cassia fistula..Gold Rain Tree) are special to Lord Shiva.
Sometimes, all the leaves drop and one can see only flowers here.
