From my Court Yard

While through out the country, there is heavy rainfall causing widespread destruction to life and property, we had been waiting for the clouds to turn to us. At last we were favored in some small measure. The various plants in my court yard are in bloom expressing their happiness. You may provide their names as I feel I am botanically challenged!

Adenium (Desert Rose)
Rose (Rishi)

Violet Trumpet vine

Hibiscus Miniature (1.5 centemeters)

Button Rose (Miniature)

Parijat - Harsingar, Tree of Sorrow (Nyctanthes arbortristis)


 Ixora Yellow

  3. I believe gardening is a passion for you. Fantastic photos.

  4. @Chitra
    Thank you. Not exactly but when living in a concrete jungle you need some greenery around. I do love nature as such.

  5. Such lovely flowers. I was looking at the desert rose flowers and plants on Discovery and thought they were completely fascinating.

  6. Wow, what lovely flowers. Like the happy thoughts in heart.

  7. बहुत सुन्दर फूल हैं मैने कैलिफोर्निया मे इतनी तरह के सुन्दर फूल देखे कि कभी कल्पना भी नही कर सकती वहाँ जंगलों मे भी सुन्दर विचित्र फूल देखने को मिले। कुदरत का क्रिश्मा हैं ये सुन्दर फूल। धन्यवाद इस सुन्दर पोस्ट के लिये।

  8. wah dada kya baat hai angreji ke foolon ko hindi ke fool dikha rahe ho...jai ho.. is umar me punya kama rahe ho....

  9. That's a lovely collection in your courtyard. These flowers sure do express beauty, and give us much joy.

    I will be the gladdest thing
    Under the sun!
    I will touch a hundred flowers
    And not pick one.

  10. lovely flowers - I'm never seen a hibiscus flower so tiny before. Thankyou so much for visiting my blog today.

  11. That's a beautiful collection in your garden. Living in big cities surrounded by concrete jungle we look forward to these colors in life.

  12. So Simple, yet so beautiful Subramanian Saab, A very Onam to you in advance

  13. What a beautiful collection of flowers. One doesnt mind being botanically challenged if one were half as aesthetically endowed as you have been. Put the bunches together and you have a grand floral carpet to receive Maveli. HAPPY ONAM !!

  14. Hello PNS:)

    Amazing collection of colorful, beautiful flowers. I am sure you are an expert gardener although you say you are botanically challenged.

    I tried my hands growing flowers but have failed in most of my attempts. Only recently I could get a few flowers and I would like to post some photos drawing inspiration from you.

    Having some flowering plants around the house always gives us immense joy for the sheer beauty and charm and to have some colorful butterflies flitting on them will be a great thrill to watch.

    I am not an expert on flowers and therefore naming them is something beyond area of knowledge.

    This is one your beautiful posts and I admired all your flowers.They are gorgeous.

    Best wishes:)

  15. Botanical names will not do them justice, such wonderful flowers you have in your patch of green. Lovely pictures too.

  32. wow, the flowers are a result of abundant love and care of the plants. the clicks would make excellent picture post cards.

  33. Hi,
    I don't remember your personal email hence writing here. I want to visit Bhumara and Tigawa temples in my MP tour. As you have quoted many times about these sites, so I would need your help to locate these sites. May you please let me know how I can reach these two sites?

    Thought of introducing an orchid found in Assam : "Kopou Phool" (dove flower) also known as "foxtail orchid"
