Hello,

Saw the first blossoms of the amaltas last evening
(16/4/08) in Delhi. One of the trees lining the
millenium park had its first cluster of flowers.

Regards
Rita

I also saw the first flowers today in Kolkata. Here are the details & links from Indiantreepix Database:
Cassia fistula Fabaceae Amaltas, Indian Laburnum, Golden Shower Tree or Golden Shower Cassia, Bandarlathi, Bahava, Girimala, Rajbrikh, Garmalo, Bahava, Bawa, Garmala, Kani Poo  On 13/2/08 fromThallasherry and Kannur in North Kerala as per Naveein- people are concerned that this flower which plays an important role in the 'Vishu" celebrations (which is the Malayalam New Year), may not be available in April. It's called the Kani Poo in Tamil and Malayalam as it flowers only in April, and exactly during the Vishu festival, when this flower is considered to be a "must" in the decoration as per Ravi. I have seen it flower from April to June in Kolkata. On 08/04/2006 at Mysore as per Raghu. Flowering in the JVPD Scheme/Andheri, Mumbai- 31/3/08- Tejal ji. April first fortnight flowering in Pune- Satish ji. Saw the first blossoms of the amaltas last evening (16/4/08) in Delhi- Rita ji. Saw first flowers on 17/4/08 in Kolkata- J.M.Garg.
Trees of Delhi states that flowers in late April & peaking by mid May. Beautiful Trees & Shrubs of Calcutta by Sh. R.K. Chakraverty & S.K.Jain states that it flowering starts in late spring (April-May) and continues upto mid summer (June).  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassia_fistula Cassia Fistula flowering in Kerala - indiantreepix | Google Groups Amaltas (Indian Laburnum)- Cassia fistula - indiantreepix | Google Groups
