Glowing candle – Banksia

 

A yellow candle,

Is a cylindrical Banksia.

 A Glowing cone against

The dark green leaves

Is native to Australia,

Pretending to be a single flower

Conspicuous to lure the bees and birds,

Why?

To prepare the next generation!

Banksia cone appears to be a single flower but factually is a bunch of flowers

 

Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.

“A flower blossoms for its own joy” – Oscar Wilde

Blooming Jacaranda

 Botanists refer as Jacaranda Mimosifolia

A tree, native to Central America

Spread its roots near and far,

 And line the streets everywhere.

When summer comes

Jacaranda blooms to hide her leaves

With magnificent purple panicles

Showing off her wealth to the world,

That I am here….

Brightly coloured fresh flower garlands take an important place in Hindu Culture. whether  a happy or sad occasion, flowers take the central role in the ritual. At temples  or at  weddings, vibrant fresh flower garlands looks magnificent . In my ” Travel – Trails”  I have clicked this flower stall  at Pondicherry  (Puducheri) town in  South India.
