There are about five Cassia bushes in my back yard. This is the first time in about three years that I can see clearly (without cataracts) with both eyes. It is absolutely amazing the brightness of these yellow flowers! They really are a pleasure to look at. There is no scent to speak of, but at the moment I have a citrus tree in bloom so there is a heady fragrance coming from the orange blossoms – which I love as long as I can smell them and go in the house. It is such a powerful aroma that too long is too much!
Above is my neighbors Palo Verde tree that hangs over my fence – which I don’t mind at all because it is a beautiful tree and attracts different species of chirping birds. It is the state tree of Arizona.
Below are the orange blossoms. It looks like a goodly crop of them, but you never can tell; if the wind blows hard enough and strong enough it may end up bearing only one or two fruit. I hope it produces at least a dozen fruit!
