Sometime in the Fall every year the bright Cassia trees burst into bloom! I am always so happy to see them again. I first noticed them every year at Thanksgiving on Sullivan's Island there were these bright happy yellow trees in full bloom. I loved their color!
So I went researching and asking around and found out what they were. Every year since, I've been on the look-out for them starting around October.
There's this big bushy weedy shrub-like plant growing on this corner. I photograph it every year and always look for it. We were out walking and suddenly I saw it and I couldn't believe it but my purse matched the blooms this year! LOL So we dashed over and made pictures of it.
I never could identify this plant on the corner. Nobody seemed to know. This year it sure had gotten taller. About a month ago, I posted on my sidebar over there---"does anyone know what this mystery flower is?" I had commented many times "well for a WEED it sure does have beautiful flowers on it". All year long it stands there in a patch of weeds....until it blooms.
Last week I found out that my "mystery" plant is a little baby Cassia Tree! The trees are so much bigger that it had just not occured to me that my mystery weed was indeed A TREE! LOL
It's getting bigger every year and more "tree like" I suppose. I am so glad it's there on that street corner in the city and I sure hope nobody else thinks it's a big weed and cuts it down!
Isn't it pretty? Street corner sunshine in the city.
