The abundant rain this year has made the flowering plants in all gardens more floriferous. The oleander bushes are full of flowers everywhere.
The Gloriosa superba lily flowers in this season and retreats into the ground in winter, to emerge again in the next monsoon season.
The Chinese Hat Holmskioldia is a native of India. It comes on many colours like the yellow one above, and...
this orange one
The cream flowers of the Nerium Oleander are not so popular as the pink one, but I like it better.
Flowers, notebooks and bananas are sold cheaply by street vendors. The flower vendor has fragrant , yellow Michaelia Champak flowers, White jasmine strung into malas , the orange Kanakambara flowers and red roses. This vendor has a cart with wheels, on which he sells seasonal local fruit. Now it is the season of the purple Jamun Syzygium cumini, also called Malabar Plum and Portuguese plum. This is a fruit of high medicinal value. The stomach infections which are common during this season , vanish if you eat two or three Jamun fruit. The seeds are used in Ayurveda for controlling diabetes.
