Summer Beauties

From March through to our monsoons in mid-June, Mumbai is stiflingly hot & humid. But it’s also the season when the all-too-rapidly-vanishing trees left in this grey concrete, glass & steel metropolis, bloom in all their flowering finery. Sparse patches of green become a riot of colour. I’m no expert, but I can appreciate nature and a thing of beauty. So here are some that I’ve driven past – ogling at their multi-hued floral foliage – which mask the grit and make my city a little more pretty to look at.

In the picture are the few I’ve seen and could get the names of – Copper Pod, Bougainvillea, Laburnum, Pink Cassia, Frangipani, Flame of the Forest, Pride of India, Pride of Burma and Jacaranda.

(A point to note – none of the photos is mine, they’ve been googled and then composed).

  1. Oh those colours are magnificent and it is lovely to see this on your blog!. We have Pride of India in our garden and this being our Autumn, I admire the changing colours of their Autumn leaves which are looking stunning though quickly disappearing as the birds pick them off. Enjoy this splendour while it lasts!😀
