Flowers

They are vibrant, rich, full of life and the ever lasting source of happiness and joy. You could find them everywhere around you, you just need to spend a moment, pause and get consumed in their beauty.

I know most of you have heck a lot of important work to do, so I am putting up few beauties here for you folks to enjoy and get consumed.

Never seen a richer crimson :-) Its very rich but no fragrance, these are what I see when I take a walk every noon after lunch around my office campus premises.


Now this is Night Queen. Awesome fragrance. The above one and this alternates around the campus.


These were wild. Found it in full bloom in between the narrow slits of the centuries old wall of the fort at Kannur.


Lotta tiny lavender flowers; juicy, huge honey pot for the butterflies and the bees.


Now this is a bed of beauties lining the side walk of my office campus :-)


Hues of red and orange.


Observe the delicate yellow bordering around the pinkish tinge :-)


This one looks like a Cotton Candy


Flaming!!


STAR!! Never seen this before. Does anyone know the name of this flower?


These have delicate petals.


Isn't nature the best designer? Look at this braid, so symmetric and painted to perfection in varied hues.


Pale blue. As if the blue has been bleached away by constant rain and dew drops 


Now don't they make the walk path beautiful and lively?

  42. The reason flowers are symmetrical is to remind us of beauty. If it weren't for colour and symmetry, would we even care?:P

    ReplyDelete
  43. kish,

  46. Each flower is unique. All are very beautiful in colours and added flavour with your wonderful description.

    I am not sure about the names. What is there in name "A Rose with any other name will smell as sweet".

    Keep cliking like this.

  47. Every picture is very unique.

    Very beautiful colours and really one should enjoy the nature.

    I am also not sure about the names of most of the flowers. However, what is there in the name "A rose with any other name will smell as sweet", I remember this quotation from a lesson called "On being called Thompson" which I read during my child hood.

    Best of luck and keep cliking like this.
