In mid-May, the Cassia fistula, commonly known as pudding-pipe trees, are in full bloom.
Wandering across Zhongshan, one can see bunches of golden flowers dropping from pudding-pipe trees along streets, just like golden rain coming down from time to time.

The Cassia fistula, 15 meters in maximum height, is a deciduous tree with slender branches and gray bark. It grows in southern and southwestern China.
The pudding-pipe tree is covered with golden flowers, just like a waterfall.
