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.

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
