The Hot, the Loud, and the Proud#9

Welcome to the Hot,the Loud, and the Proud, a meme on the last day of the month hosted by Noel Morata of A Plant Fanatic In Hawaii.

All the pictures used in this post were taken in the month of July in Delhi. The place where we stayed (my son was with me) had spacious grounds and many varieties of plants. Every morning the call of the birds was music to my ears, and there were many. Of course I couldn’t identify them all but it was fun watching them.

The Firebush had just started to bloom.

The pathway leading to the dining area.

This clump of sunflowers was the hang out of several bulbuls. If you click on the picture, you’ll see two of them.

Such a cheerful sunny face!!

Pinwheel jasmine bushes trimmed to a rounded shape.

Nerium oleander is an evergreen shrub from the dogbane family and is considered to be one of the most poisonous plants in the world.

Mexican oleander is a fixture in most tropical gardens.

I don’t know what this one is called. It was blooming in the campus of Delhi university.

To see more gardens, please don’t forget to visit Noel’s beautiful blog. Have a great week!!

    Hi Kanak

    So I´m enjoying your flower pictures very much.

    Have a nice week

    Lovely collection of flowers. The bulbul couple is an added bonus. Is the last flower an azelia? I saw some in Shimla, which looked like the flower in your picture.

    I’ve enjoyed visiting your post! … and thank you for visiting mine. I’m reposting a number of earlier posts as the gardens are pretty much closed down for the season, although snow will add a new dimension before long! I will be creating more burlap cocoons today as protection against the winter sun and drying winds… I like to do this the first few years for any zone challenged plantings. Larry

    i love that last flower, it looks like a hibiscus, but not really sure and i love the clipped trees that look like Dr. Seuss trees lining the walkways…very interesting topiary.

  8. Oh what beautiful pictures! Our flowers are all gone now. The last one looks a bit like a carnation, but it probably isn’t. I have never heard of a bulbul, is it a bird? After clicking, I still couldn’t see them. Perhaps you will put some on your other blog some time?

    So many very familiar plants … loved your Sunflower shots! That last flower does look a lot like a Hibiscus bloom.
