Golden Rain #ThursdayTreeLove

Part of my love of trees, and growing plants in general, is finding plants growing that are out of the ordinary.

Where I live, in upstate New York, some trees are common - maples and oaks, for example.  Some may be endangered, such as the ash, and will (sadly) become uncommon in years to come.

Others are not common at all.  Today, I want to show you a tree not common to my part of New York State.

Recently, an Indian bloger, Shalini Baiswala, posted a picture on Instagram (something I recently joined) of what we call a Golden Rain Tree here in the states.  I didn't think they grew where I live.

Ok, I admit it.  I was wrong.

Because I don't trespass onto peoples' property when I take pictures I wasn't able to enjoy the scent of this tree.

This find made my day. I hope the golden rain of this tree makes you happy, too.

  1. That's such a pretty tree .We have a similar one in our neighbourhood.It's very pretty

  2. I was just at my neighbor's house the other day admiring the one he planted last year. He called it a golden chain tree. Now I see that they are two different species and I will have to research this. His was covered with bees and just gorgeous.

  3. Let's hope it's not invasive. We don't need another kudzu!

  4. Love that!Yes, very similar to what Shalini shared though I think this is a bit different.
    Thank you so much for joining. I really appreciate it :)

  5. Interesting. I don't know if I've ever seen one like that before.

  6. Looks like an Amaltas (we call it here) tree. Golden rain sounds beautiful. I love this tree (And Gulmohur). They make the surroundings so refreshing. :)

  7. it looks so pretty. Haven't seen this one around where I stay.
