Flowers from India
By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower Rabindranath Tagore
Thanks, Aida Hazlan 🙂
gorgeous. Always think it’s fascinating how beautiful tropical flowers are but how few have a scent.
Suzanne Catty , the showy ones are not scented, good point. Then there are the jasmines, mogras and little white flowers (one with an orange stem whose name eludes me) that are intensely fragrant. These are woven into strands and worn in the hair as part of a southern woman’s everyday toilette.
Stunning, thank you Rajini Rao
Great quote and wonderful photos!
very nice collection
Well, Strelizia is from South Africa and boy flower from Americas.
Not native to India, but common there Antonio Petrelli . This is more of an urban collection taken around well manicured lawns or little potted gardens 🙂
Amazing collection of photos Rajini Rao ! Thanks for sharing it with us! 🙂
The flowers with an orange stalk are called Parijat in Hindi/Marathi. Don’t know the English name though. It has beautiful scent. The fragrance brings back my early childhood memories! 🙂
Oh, thanks Deeksha Tare ! Parijata or night flowering jasmine (Nyctanthes). Gorgeous scent. I love wearing the woven flowers in my hair.
Yes Rajini Rao !!!
I enjoyed every single pix, i’m a big fan of flowers, and you just added a great series of flowers to #floralfriday
Beautiful flowers ….. Beautiful family.
Rajini Rao Of course flowers are beautiful. But i like the photo with your family more. You look brilliant all together!
Konstantin Lamanov Thank you for your kind words, Kostya 🙂
Back into flowers now Rajini Rao . nice flowers !
Birds of paradise blooms its orange flowers in sequence similar to a parrot raises its head feathers.
Flowers from Bangalore….
With so many great posts from you my friend …its going to take me a while to catch up…just thought I will come in to say hello from Mumbai..have hit the samosas already Rajini Rao 😉
Hi Kershaw Rustomji ..you have the scenery in India, no need to look at my posts 🙂
I had a great time in India: so much good food that I could only eat samosas once. So you must have one more for me!
Oh i like reading your posts…smiling…ok will eat samosas for you too Rajini Rao 🙂
I want some samosas too. No matter what it is…( :
Konstantin Lamanov , you will enjoy them 🙂
They are typically potatoes and peas (sometimes meat) wrapped in a pastry cover. They have their own Wiki page, lol.
Rajini Rao I like it. Virtually…
RAJNI ur flower selection good….
BTW, Rajini Rao did you see the pictures of my bird of paradise? When we had the condo, it was apparently too hot and the bird never bloomed. When we moved to the house, it blooms every year now.
Don’t recall, Chad Haney . Will look for it.
Beautiful album, thanks for sharing.
so beautiful flowers… especially Strelitia ( Bird Paradise Flower )
I love these flowers, thanks for the collection very nice.
Rajini Rao where did you take these pictures?
