Wild Flower Wednesday- Returning Monsoons
The returning monsoons are bringing a lot of rain to my city now. These returning monsoons which blow from the north-east bring rains to Chennai and the surrounding areas. The rain has helped the wild flowers to bloom in abundance all over my suburb. A group of orange Cannas are blooming in a vacant plot in my neighbourhood.
These yellow mallows have found the returning rains much to their liking. This one was blooming in another vacant plot.
The milk of this Crown Flower is useful when a splinter gets into your hand while gardening. The milk softens the skin round the splinter, and makes the splinter come out by itself.
