黃槐決明 sunshine tree

這個早上下著雨,雨不太大,正為周圍的草木好好洗濯,色彩鮮明了,圓滾滾雨點掛滿附近的黃槐,尤其晶瑩亮眼。因為水珠、葉片、豆莢,圈畫大小澎扁的圖像,點出世界就是圓的。

rain can be annoying to people but definitely complementing to plants when it is not too heavy. it gives them a good wash, bringing out the true colours. what more, all those pearly drops hanging and sliding on leaves and branches, like jewel, like music notes.

黃槐決明是常綠喬木,全年開花。金黃的花朵,愛群體出動。每塊複葉有四至十對互生橢圓的小葉。此時分最可愛的,是串串的豆莢,曲線玲瓏。

sunshine tree is an evergreen tree. it flowers all year round. i believe the common name sunshine tree (scientific name is senna surattensis) refers to the bright golden flowers which certainly bright things up. there are other interesting names: glossy shower and scrambled egg bush. yet these names to me can’t compare to the charm of its features: the perfectly shaped and arranged compound leaves; the lovely strings of pod.
