April Phool

Phool means flower in Hindi. April is the month for the roadside trees to be filled with flowers in this region. The blue Jacaranda can be seen on many roads.
The Pink Trumpet tree, Tabebuia rosea is not so common.

The yellow Tabebuias are still blooming their hearts out.


At last we had rains and the weather has become cool and bracing.
Have a fun-filled April Fool's Day!

  1. Hello Lotus leaf, this a an April fool's joke we played as kids. "Hello is your tap running" and the response will be "yes it is" " well run after it please" LOL Lovely trees, I love the jacaranda and the tabebuia as well.
