Since long I have been thinking of having a morning stroll in my society compound , clicking and appreciating the beautiful flowers that are grown in my society garden. But due to office on weekdays and laziness on weekends I never get the time to get up early morning and go down.
So last Saturday since I slept early on Friday night, I got awake around 7 and seeing the pleasant weather outside I decided that today is the day. Although as Winters are approaching, most of the trees have started shedding their leaves and flowers but still some of them were laden with some beautiful flowers.
Nevertheless sharing the pictures ,some with names and some with their search still on for identification.
Hope you all will like them.
First up the FireCracker Flower or Crossandra infundibuliformis. If you enlarge this photo by clicking on it you will see that the flower has a yellow color at center and red petals which gives an impression of burning cracker with red flames coming out of it.
Next up is one of the most common flower that we see in India, Bougainvillea.
Bougainvillea is a vine tree bearing bunches of pink flowers.
Next, Violet Wild Petunia.... Nice violety flower.
Another one which although small but had a very uncharacteristic petal shape. One prolong search it seems its another variety of Crown of the Thorns (Botanical name Euphorbia milii)
And ofcourse how can you not have Roses....
There were many more flowers that I clicked whose name I could not yet find out, so just sharing some of them
This was an interesting flower with needle like petals. Now I know they are Red Powder Puff flower or Calliandra haematocephala.
I could not click the below Amaltas flower well as it was on roadside outside our society and the flowers too were at quite an height.
This one is called Jatropha Integerrima or Spicy Jatropha.
There were few more but their photos din't come well.
