Ha! How did you get that Thai name, John?

FYI its other name or native name is Khoon (คูน).

Beautiful with the moon in the background.

Hello Ah-Pong, many thanks for your visit and kind comments and the native Thai name. I got the Thai name I used during a google search for the best English name.

Best regards, John

Hi Alan, thanks for your kind comments. I remember the Laburnum trees in New Zealand and they are indeed similar but I think the leaves on this are bigger.

Best regards, John
