May has been unusually hot this year in Pune with no signs of summer showers. Yet the trees seem to be loving the heat.
Especially the Delonix regia of the Caesalpiniaceae family. Better known as the Gulmohor or the Mayflower.
Presently the tree is in an leafless stage and it is fully covered with flowers. The tree blazes red or orange-red and surprisingly this colour is actually soothing even in the brilliant daylight.
