Chennai's prolific bloomers - Indian Laburnum

I simply love these trees. Aptly called 'the golden chain trees', they look so ornamental when in bloom. But dont be fooled by their fairy like appearance - these flowers (and possibly leaves) are very poisonous! I tried to get a full tree but in vain - all the trees i saw were either within gardens - in which case only the top half was visible, or by the roadside - in which case the traffic hid most of the bottom.
