Spring trees millettia ovalifolia and butea frondosa in bloom

There are lot of trees in bloom right now. The spring annuals have started fading but trees are just warming up. Here are some of the trees in bloom right now in lahore. I am intended to capture at least 50 trees in my blog this spring.

First one is butea frondosa also known as Flame of the forest. Bees and butterflies just love it. The hundreds of flowers on a single tree look so pretty. A common tree in lahore. This is a closeup of flowers.


And this is how it looks like a panorama view.


The next one is millettia ovalifolia with local name villayati shisham. A subtropical legume tree. There are more than one millettia species blooming right now but i will share the remaining in next post.
These are buds not flowers.


This is closeup of flower buds. Look like capsules


And this is how flowers look like. Somehow they appear to be pea like.


And last but not least the front view of this beautiful tree.


This post is included in Today's Flowers so don't forget to visit it and enjoy blooms from around the world.

Wow that first tree is amazing. Great photos too. I guess I am just used to seeing our trees and nothing can touch that. Wrong climate I guess. This is my first visit here. I will be back. Blessings
