Cassia Tree

Backyard Plein Air

A friend gave me a six inch high cassia seedling about three years ago, it's now a huge tree in full bloom.  Attracts lots of yellow butterflies and perfect for hanging orchids in the shade.  Also difficult painting subject.  The plant on the lower left is a myers lemon tree growing in a flower pot and loaded with lemons beginning to ripen.
