Laburnum

Laburnum
pods hang
in beige clusters.
Drab mockery of springtime
glory.

    We have some here, in white…
    Also known as Golden Chain tree.

      Oh, never heard of that but I like it. I don’t know if it is the same but sounds as if it should be. Here Laburnum pods are a bit like peapods but the seeds are poisonous.

        Some animal has got to eat the seed and transfer them to places unknown. The plant has to benefit something…?
