Flowers of Gold!

Its a sweltering summer out here, and everything seems terribly hot! I shudder to think what May will bring, and when the rains will come.... Meanwhile, here's a spot of yellow which is pleasing to the eyes....The golden laburnum in our colony is full of flowers and the ground is a carpet of yellow! That, unfortunately,  was a sight I couldn't capture on camera thanks to the condition of the road, but here is the tree and its flowers....







and yes, for those of you who are wondering, yes, I haven't yet managed to write all those over-due posts, so I am filling time by posting random photographs I have taken last month.... and the list of my over-due posts is going to increase, since I have another outing scheduled for tomorrow!

  3. Kanikonna is one of our favourites. Reminds of Vishu. Though it's Kerala's state flower, we could see it in abundance outside the state.
