Going for an evening walk in my neighbourhood
I saw this beautiful laburnum tree with its sunny hanging flowers blowing gently in the evening breeze.
The blue sky glinted through little spaces in the leaves
and the flowers danced to the music of the wind.
Last year's seedpods had opened up and the seeds were ready to drop to the ground
Suddenly, the wind became stronger and the green leaves and the yellow flowers became a glorious blur of colour letting in the blue spaces of the sky to make everything sparkle and glow -
and the seed pods went with the flow in the direction of the wind.
Such a pretty shaped flower.
The Laburnum is of the Papilionacea family,
leguminous plants whose flowers have butterfly-shaped corollas.
"Papillon" is French for butterfly.
