Welcome to Blooming Friday! I can’t wait to share more images of blooms from my hometown, Haflong. To see what’s blooming around the world, please visit our gracious host, Katarina@ ROSES AND STUFF.
First on my list are the pretty pink blooms of an ornamental tobacco from my uncle’s house. Nandita (his daughter) is an avid plant collector. And this was her latest find:)
From my mother-in-law’s garden is this creamy white hibiscus.
From the road, I snapped the picture of this vine covering the entire portion of one side of a house. The Flaming Trumpet vine/Pyrostegia venusta is a prolific bloomer and this is its season.
A variety of sunflower grows in the wild. I only managed to get one of the last wilting blooms on the roadside.
From the train, I caught the flash of yellow. How beautiful the area must have looked at the height of the blooming period. If you click on the image you can see the numerous seed-heads.And on waysides, covered with a thick coating of winter dust, the Scarlet Morning Glory/Ipomoea hederifolia still managed to look happy. That’s how it is till the rains come in March/April. But if we’re lucky sudden winter showers will come and wash away all the dust.But on a road less frequented, on the edge of a jungle, The Angel’s Trumpets look cleaner. This variety of Datura grows wild all over the area. The blooms are large and face downwards. And of course I can’t resist posting this sunset photo. I’m glad I caught these orange hues one evening. Mostly, it’s been the sunrise shots taken on my walks early in the mornings.Blooming Friday has been an opportunity (and will continue to be so) to share so many images from my region. Thank you, Katarina. And to all my friends and visitors, a heart-felt THANK YOU too!
