Today's Flowers/India


Today's flowers is hosted by Luiz Santilli Jr.


Talking with Paz the other day, I realized that I had hundreds
 of photos from India that I had never posted and probably 
never would. Since it has been raining for the past two days
and I have no New York photos, here are some from March.
We went to a wonderful garden in Udaipur where there were fountains
and pools and curiously English-looking herbaceous borders.
Here a cinneraria.


Here petals of bourgenvillia  fall into the water.



Some are swept up with palm tree fronds.
(This last photo should be enlarged to see the details...)

Enlarging your photos is such fun! It puts one right in with the subject.

Tracy said...

All those petals...so dreamy...just lovely, Elizabeth! Happy Day ((HUGS))

Daryl said...

Oh so pretty .. isnt this rain truly obnoxious .. does Buster like the rain?

Joanne said...

Pretty flowers to consider, with a week of rain predicted. The flowers here will be busting at the seam once the sun eventually comes out.

Denise said...

Hello Elizabeth, I have enjoyed all your photos, these are beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing.

Karen Cole said...

Thanks for making me look at the details, Elizabeth. Sometimes we just breeze through.

The rain is making everything grow so beautifully here. Green is the word of the day.

I have to go back and read about the haiku festival.....oh, dear.....that requires writing doesn;t it. :-)

Both petal shots are just fantastic! Compositionally, you always get them just right. So nice.

Patty said...

I almost forgot to post here. I wandered over to Buster's site. Don't tell my cats. I have enough to do.

Beautiful colors and composition. I enjoyed those little brooms.

Enlarging the photos is a must.

It's wonderful that you can travel back to India with the memories from your photos...and so can we. Lovely colors!

Merisi said...

Simply gorgeous,
even the fallen petals pile.

It was raining here tonight.
Finally, I say,
it has been sunshine for weeks on end. Mother Nature needed the water.
And I a reprieve. Pollen!

Sherry said...

Isabel said...

Bougainvillieas are some of my favorite flowers. They bring me fond memories of Portugal. Lovely shots! I'm glad you are posting more of India's beauty.

Bee said...

Well, you would hardly describe these as rainy day filler! That bluish-purple of the cinneraria just might be my favorite color.

Paz said...

These are beautiful. Glad you posted them. More, please....

Paz ;-)
