Nature has so many treasures, each tree, flower or fruit has its own beauty. I imagine god to be the greatest artist, as all his creation are a masterpiece.
Recently i spotted a yellow orchid tree, color of its flowers are sooo unique. Its yellow with a hint of green, and a black spot on one of its petal. Not too bright but in perfect contrast with leafs.
Unfortunately I couldn’t capture the picture of the tree which had hundreds of these little beauties. Could click only some close-ups which I am sharing here 😦
My office has wonderful gardens, thanks to our awesome landscaping team. Variety of flowers , fruits , trees are grown here. I developed the hobby of flower-watching during the after lunch walks we used to take.
Best word to describe my hobby would be Hanami (Japanese) literally means “flower viewing”, it’s a japanese custom of “enjoying the beauty of flowers”. Though in Japan its used only for cherry blossoms , being in india I broaden my spectrum to all tropical flowers ;).
The very first flower that captured my attention in the campus was Amaltas (Cassia fistula) which belongs to gulmohar family. In april (late spring) amaltas tree is full of lovely yellow flowers which fall as bunches. It’s a treat to watch this tree as it sheds its leaves and blooms with flowers. I would call it indian sakura(cherry blossoms) :). Buds at the end looks like yellow pearls.
As of now I only have this sketch , but do google to see this beautiful flower.
