In the glory of Pink shower

Hot dry season at Thai-Burmese border.

The dreary long drive was interrupted by a glorius sight ....

Cassia bakeriana or the pink shower tree is a native of the seasonally dry areas of Thailand and Burma. It is from the Legume family and is closely related to Golden shower tree (C. fistula) that has been introduced by Singapore authorities for city scaping. During the dry season, the small tree drop all the leaves and cover themselves in pink blossoms in a concerted fashion....the flowering fools ! 

If they can do as well in Singapore, there will be no need to go to Japan for cherry blossom seasons.
