Some of the trees & flowers of varied hues that I captured along this colourful journey called life!
On the way
On the way to nowhere in particular…okay fine somewhere,
I came across this tree with its powder puffs on display.
Pretty methought it was.
Trees are the Earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.

Onam in Kerala
H a p p y ~ O n a m
Last week it was great celebrating Onam in Kerala.
It was a first time for me as a native of the state, to be here during the festival!
T’was also the reason I was missing in action in blogosphere.
Here is the traditional Pookalam or floral arrangement we all joined in to make.
Created with a blend of various colourful flowers.
A ton of patience is needed for anyone partaking in this festive activity 🙂
Additions by enthusiastic family members –
Here is the Pookalam I spotted in front of a village tea stall –
Tug-of-war games seemed to abound in the village during the day of the festival.
Village kids seated atop a wall try & get the best view of the game.
Few are curious at the new faces passing by –
The post-box is still very much in use –
The green, green grass of home.
Balm to the eyes these paddy fields were –
As far as the eye can see, with hardly a soul in sight –
The green sea –
Powdery, Pink & Pretty
Bougainvillea = Vibrant
Came by an amazing mix of Bougainvillea in varied hues recently – what a vibrant burst of colour…
Photographed some interesting trees, most names unknown but really striking!
Consider the lilies…
Time spent with plants is time well spent. Photos of these flowers were captured during a visit to few nurseries.
This brings to mind what Jesus said – “Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
