In the Pink

Pink is the colour of joy. The men wear pink turbans during a wedding in Punjab. This climbing rose which is climbing up my Amla tree has the faintest trace of pink.
Unlike its climbing cousin, this rose is full of joy, like a pink turban.

The pink Angels' Trumpets Brugmansia salveolens has started blooming again. The garden is full of its sweet scent in the night.


The Crown of Thorns, Euphorbia milii has a face blotched with pink. It is named after Euphorbus, who was the Greek physician of king Juba II of Numidia(Algeria) in the first century B.C. It was King Juba who discovered the plant.



Another shot of the brug when it opened in the night.
Have a joyful day!

  1. I love these pink flowers, and learning that pink turbans in Punjabi weddings signify joy. I have been to two Punjabi wedding and did not know that. I wish I did! The flowers would be a good post for Pink Saturday at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/06/so-just-what-is-pink-saturday.html
