Flowering Trees - Copper Pod

Bangalore is slowly changing from the Garden City to concrete jungle. However, some of the trees that helped it to earned its name, still adorn the streets of Bangalore. One such tree is beautiful Copper Pod flower tree. The name comes from the coppery-red seed cases that are seen in profusion.



The ground under the tree is strewn with a carpet of the yellow petals and is sight to behold. 




This is a semi-evergreen tree that bears clusters of yellow flowers at the end of the branches, together with dark green leaves. The tree is large and very shapely.



It is pleasure to move on the streets of Bangalore with all the trees around you.

This is the third time I am trying to comment on your blog. Goggle is out to get me these days. Earlier it would not let me even bring up your pictures. It is so frustrating. What I was saying was it is so sad that Bangalore is becoming a concrete jungle. It is so sad to see beautiful plants and trees get lost to the big city. These pictures are beautiful, but I love yellow. They put a smile on y face.

It is sad that beautiful Bangalore is turning into a concrete jungle. I hate to see the beautify of things like these plants being lost. I tried to comment earlier, but Goggle would not let me bring up the pictures. I am having the worst time with them.

Sigh, it is sad that concrete it taking over Bangalore. I would much rather see these beautiful yellow trees abound. Have a nice week-end.
