Monsoon Wildflowers

 The Monsoon is my favourite season as wildflowers are blooming in every meadow now. Photos also come out good because of the cloud cover. It is nice to go for a long walk to the outskirts of the city just to enjoy the beauty of the wildflowers.
 Ipomia, a sort of Morning Glory closes itself as soon as it has been pollinated by bees. You don't get to see an open flower after 10 a.m, most of the time!

 The flowers of the Sarsaparilla vine are very attractive. The roots of this vine i used to make a energizing drink.
 The Abutilon indica opens only in the afternoon, so you don't see the flowers in the morning.
Thanks to the team of Our World Tuesday where you can see what is happening in different parts of our world. I also thank Michelle of Nature Notes.

  4. Beautiful flowers. Sarsparilla as root beer is my favorite soda. I only drink it now when sarsparilla is listed in the ingredients.
