Blooming Friday

Yesteday, I went to my friend Vasantha's house. After photographing these flowers from her garden, we both went to the cinema . This is a Duranta.
After watching the rave-reviewed Hindi movie Kameeney, we both went to a restaurant for lunch.Later we visited a famous jewelry store, where she bought a gold bracelet. This is a golden Frangipani.

Then we went to an ice cream parlour and had ice creams which was the colour of this Allamanda. After a wonderful afternoon spent blowing up our money, we went back home in a city bus the colour of which was red like that of the Peacock flower below. We could do all this because the school is closed till Monday because of the fear of the 'flu.


  1. Sounds like you've had a good day. Schools here are still closed for the summer holidays. They will reopen in September. Isn't it amazing that we live on opposite sides of the world and yet we grow the identical plants in our gardens. Have a great weekend.

  2. simply beautifully captured shots!

  3. Islandgal, yes it is really amazing that we have the same plants growing. It is also good because we can exchange information and advice about the plants.
    Flyingstars: Thanks for visiting my blog and the encouraging words. Please visit again.

  4. I've been enjoying your beautiful photographs and your passion for plants. A friend who visited Amsterdam recently said she tasted an amazing icecream flavor called "Violette." It was a delicate mauve in color, and was apparently made of violets and cream.

  5. Via Shirl's blog I found the way to your exciting and beautiful exotic garden! Your plants are so different to mine and that makes it so interesting to visit and read your blog. Will certainly be back again.
    Greetings from Switzerland.
