Skywatch Friday

Now that the hot and dry season has started, we see bougainvilleas blooming everywhere. These maroon double bougainvilleas made a fine contrast against the bright blue morning sky.
You can see loads of sky pictures at http://skyley.blogspot.com

  2. Usually associated with hedge-plants these flowers look more colourful in photograph. Our is it because we pay less attention to them, seeing them on the hedges ?

  12. It is the brightness of these stunning flowers that takes some pain away from the North Indian scorching summers.
