A branch of the tree responsible for the lovely mess:

I love the shadows and the tree, made for a nice shot.

A carpet of fallen blossoms... Very beautiful indeed.

It is a striking photo. Similar to the dusty pollen the locust trees drop up here. Everything turns yellow and then that turns brown.

la première photo est superbe, ombre sur un champs d'or.
the first photograph is superb, shade on one gold fields.

The shadow in the first photo is superb! And what tree is it? beautiful!

Dina said...

The best kind of "litter."
What tree is this?? New to me.

A lovely mess indeed. What a beautiful composition.

Stunning shadow...I thought the first shot showed an old railroad track when I saw it as a thumbnail...and what a beautiful way to decay for that tree!

Jacob said...

I don't know the name of the tree, but it's frustrating when you have a beautiful tree like that and find it's so messy!

We had a tree with yellow flowers the leaned over our pool - and dumped all those flowers IN the pool. I cut it down!

Beautiful shots, JM!

But without the gprgeous tree you would miss/mess all the beauty.
The fence shadow adds the extra punch too. MB

the shot with shadows is superb!

Asta said...

Beautiful colours! Looks as if the trees on fire.
Best regards

Joo and Dina,

There are many trees like this one around here and I believe they are from the tropics, but have no idea what their name is. I can only tell you they are big and look similar to Artocarpus altilis, the Breadfruit Tree, but probably they are not even related...

Such an excellent post idea! Actually the ground looks almost golden!

You are right! It's an extremely beautiful "mess":)

Lovely photo, so sweat and warm colour! Great!

I love the shadow in this photo. It's a great contrast to the yellow petals on the ground. It reminds me of our palo verde trees. As the little yellow flowers that bloom in the spring start to fall, the ground gets covered with a carpet of yellow.

Babzy said...

nice tree, i love the shadows in the first shot :)

Prospero said...

That first photo is so lovely. It looks like that plant might be in the Protea family. Could be Grevillea robusta.

Julie said...

Indeed, a lovely mess. I also agree with Chicken that I thought the first image was of a railway line. The shadow is quite wonderful, JM. Dark, complex and with a delightful curve.

Bravo on this one, my friend!

asf said...

Great shadows of the fence and so golden ground. What a lovely tree it is.

Pam said...

That is a very unique flower, JM. And I think it is raining gold!
Have a delightful weekend:D

Great shots.

What a beautiful yellow day....
Un beso,

Carraol said...

Beautiful path of shadows and life!

Joan Elizabeth said...

I love the top shot, and like others it had me thinking it was a railway line ... made me look twice which is always a good sign for a photograph.

You have caught my favourite colour. Amazing true carpet !!

I can only add my "beautifull picture" comment to all the previous ones. It's a very good shot and good idea to show us where does the golden come from. I never "escape" from the 1 picture rule on my blog, maybe I should sometimes.
Have a nice week-end !

A 1ª foto está fantástica.
Uma das ruas perto do meu trabalho também está pintada de amarelo :)

henny said...

Indeed a lovely mess. Hope they won't sweep it too soon.
