(Common summer flowering tree in Delhi )





Found an orange mushroom, never saw something like this before. It is most likely an immature "Beefsteak fungus"


"Fistulina hepatica (beefsteak fungus, also known as beefsteak polypore or ox tongue) is an unusual bracket fungus classified in the Agaricales, that is commonly seen in Britain, but can be found in North America, Australia, North Africa, and the rest of Europe. As its name suggests, it looks remarkably similar to a slab of raw meat. It has been used as a meat substitute in the past, and can still be found in some French markets. It has a sour, slightly acidic taste. For eating it must be collected young and it may be tough and need long cooking.

The shape resembles a large tongue, and it is rough-surfaced with a reddish-brown colour. The spores are released from minute pores on the creamy-white underside of the fruit body. A younger Fistulina hepatica is a pinkish-red colour, and it darkens with age. It bleeds a dull red juice when cut, with the cut flesh further resembling meat.

The underside of the fruiting body, from which the spores are ejected, is a mass of tubules. The genus name is a diminutive of the Latin word fistula and means "small tube", whilst the species name hepatica means "liver-like", referring to the consistency of the flesh.

The species is fairly common, and can often be found on oaks and sweet chestnut, from August to the end of autumn, on either living or dead wood. It has a tendency to impart a reddish-brown stain to the living wood of oaks, creating a desirable timber type. In Australia, it can be found growing from wounds on Eucalyptus trees. It causes a brown rot on the trees which it infects." - WiKi


"De biefstukzwam (Fistulina hepatica) is een eetbare paddenstoel uit de familie Fistulinaceae. Het is de enige vertegenwoordiger van deze familie in de Benelux.

Het vruchtlichaam heeft een doorsnede van 25–30 cm en een dikte van 6–8 cm en is alleenstaand. Het is waaiervormig met een versmald aanhechtingspunt; soms is er ook een steelachtig basis aanwezig. Het vruchtlichaam is vleeskleurig en heeft een ruwe oppervlak naar de rand toe vanwege de aanwezigheid van korrelige wratjes. De zwam kleurt het hout roodachtig en is daarom zeer geliefd bij houtbewerkers.

De buisjes zijn klein en staan los van elkaar. Er zijn kleine witte tot geelachtige poriën zichtbaar.

Het vlees is tot 5 cm dik en is sappig. Het lijkt op rauwe biefstuk en er komt ook een rood sap uit. De smaak is zuur en iets bitter.

De biefstukzwam is een vaak geziene paddenstoel aan de voet van eiken of in holten van stronken dicht bij de grond. De zwam groeit in de herfst.

De soort is wijdverbreid in Europa en komt ook voor in het oosten van Noord-Amerika." - WiKi

Cassia fistula (Golden-shower)



This magificent Cassia Fistula tree was hanging over a fence on the way home today. So I stopped on the busy street and hopped out in the rain with umbrella resting on my head to get the shot. You can not even tell it is raining in the looks like a bright sunny day. The tree is really the most glorious one I have ever seen.

Fistula hepatica - Langue-de-bœuf

I love the brilliant gold of the Senna's flowers contrasting so beautifully against its leathery green leaves.The shape of the petals is unusual with them cut out around the central filaments and stamens.


The Cassia tree (Senna fistula) can grow to 25 feet tall and is closely related to the Jerusalem tree and the Redbud tree; which means the underlying roots enrich the soil with Nitrogen that is fixed as Nitrogen fertilizer in the root nodules by Nitrogen fixing bacteria: Nitrogen, that is captured from the atmosphere. The Cassia trees are very tolerant of poor soils and also are very tolerant of salt water spray and are commonly found thriving on sand dunes.


From Asia came the Cassia tree that is also called the "Golden Shower" Tree, "Flowering Senna", "Texas Flowering Senna" and many other names. The Cassia (Senna) tree is a heavy flowering tree or shrub that is cold hardy to zone 8, however, during some years; if the the temperatures drop below 10 degrees F., the tree will freeze to the ground, but will regrow from the roots into a shrub. In the freeze of 1983 at Tifton, GA., the temperatures dropped to zero degrees F. and the Cassia tree did not regrow again.
