Here’s the last of my burst of yellow flower posts from Owens Pond…for now.
Partridge-pea (Cassia fasciculata) resembles a sensitive plant and I’ve read that the leaves are a little bit sensitive, but I haven’t experienced that…the plant’s sensitivity, I am quite sensitive.
By the name, I would guess that the partridge must forage for the peas in those pods, but I haven’t read about it having food value for humans. I tend to leave wild foods for the animals anyway.
The flower itself is quite attractive with those strong red anthers.
We are in for another Super Moon tomorrow and for a change I plan on being out at night as well as the early morning. It’s tough work, but someone’s got to do it.
