Cassia fistula - Golden Shower Tree


Cassia fistula - Golden Shower Tree (Cassia fistula - Golden Shower Tree)

This Golden Shower tree was flowering at the San Diego Zoo. I was there for the night zoo, so it's a little dark. Photo taken July 29, 2018.

Every summer there's Nighttime Zoo. It runs from June 17th though Sept. 3rd this year. I've taken pics there at night pretty much every year since I've been on GoY. :>))

Hi Andy and 3d! You are so lucky to be near The San Diego zoo ~it is famous for it's publicity spots on the Carson show (goes back a few years!) and for working to help save endangered species and raising consciousness of the plight of species threatened by us! ..I seem to remember they helped to save the Condor? a very worthy institution. their surroundings are horticulturally correct too which makes it doubly attractive. Smart idea to open at night in the hot weather.

Yes, I am very lucky! I do remember the many times Joan Embry used to be on The Johnny Carson show with the animals. Some show were so funny!

It does feel so good to go to the zoo at night. It's been way too hot during the daytime!
