Wild Flowers of the Monsoon
Now that the Monsoon has set in, there is heavy rain every evening in my part of the world. Gardens and parks are lush and green. There are wildflowers on the outskirts of the city. The yellow Rattlepod attracts butterflies and bees.
The Melastoma is called Black Mouth because the mouths of the children who eat the berries turn black for a while!
The Ipomea flower closes as soon as it is pollinated by bees, Conservation of energy!
The East Indian Screw flowers arebrightly coloured and full of nectar. Ants, bees and bumblebees besiege it.
My thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday, which I look forward to reading every week.
I also thank Mrs.Nesbitt who started ABCWednesday and the wonderful Roger and his team.
