Flower portrait

A Riot of Yellow

Cassias are flowering everywhere, and in the late afternoon light they begin to glow a little. I've been meaning to take some photos of them to try and capture their floral character, and I finally did so yesterday afternoon. It does look a bit strange to the average passer by when you have your nose stuck in a shrub, snapping away at pods and blossoms. Sometimes there's a concerned look and a quick acceleration as they drive past, and sometimes there's a benevolent wave.
