The intense heat of this summeris making me long to go to the Himalayas. I was in those grand mountains last August.
The small stream named after Saraswati, the goddess of learning, made a gurgling sound as it raced down the mountains.
There were wildflowers everywhere, like the Inula above.
I hope our trip to the Himalayas next month will be as wonderful like the last.
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday where you get to read and enjoy interesting blogs.
I found a pair of this unusual dragonfly hovering on my jasmine bush. At first I thought they were butterflies, but on closer look, I came to the conclusion they were dragonflies. It is unusually hot and sunny here that even the jasmine has not flowered.
The heat does not seem to bother the cactus Pereskia. It is blooming profusely now.
During my early morninf walk, I see little sunbirds skip around this wild grass and eat the seeds.
To see interesting pictures and stories, go to Our World Tuesday.
Roadside trees are resplendent with flowers now. So are the tiny wildflowers.
Hope you had a great Easter holiday!

The ancient temple of Keladi has a story of sacrifice behind it. When the temple was being built nine hundred years ago, Murari brothers heard a prophecy that a human sacrifice is needed . So they killed themselves.Every year, a celebration is held on the day of their self sacrifice in the town of Keladi.
Tropical flowers are in bloom almost all through the year. I wonder at their vigour. The red Clerodendrum is a climber , and it is so invasive! But cheerful!
Thunbergias are also in bloom through the year. This purple King's Mantle is elegant and attractive.
This hibiscus took a month's rest , and now it is back in business.
All these are from my garden.
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday, who are like the tropical flowers who bring cheer throughout the year!
