Skywatch Friday

The Baheda tree is highly prized by the practitioners of Ayurveda, the traditional medicine system of India. It is in full bloom now, and soon there will be the fruits which are used in combination with other herbs to treat all kinds of illnesses. The brilliant blue sky of the tropical winter contrasts with the yellow catkins.
My thanks to the team of Skywatch Friday.
