We in India call this tree with bright flame like flowers as The Gulmohar (Hindi and Urdu -‘Gul’ means ‘Flower’ and ‘Mohr’ is ‘Peacock’, thus the name suggests a spectacular show of color, like the extraordinary colors of a peacock’s tail. – Courtesy the Wikipedia.

When the Gulmohur blooms it means summer. In India it spreads brightness color and joy during the months of April May & June.

Its summer now so spread the joy. 🙂
