BLUSHING DAMSELS and THE DANCE OF JOY

The Western Ghats express their joy  during the monsoons through these dancing wildflowers.

All you have to do, is notice them.

I know not their names but am smitten by their beauty.

The mountains crowned with rain laden clouds form the backdrop for this wild romantic bush with pale lavender flowers.

These cups of joy in white were growing all over in hundreds. I noticed the cups are filled with rain water at the time of writing this blog. I have relieved the moment and more.

The featured image is of the same flower  in pink. I call it the blushing damsel.

I call them passion flowers or clock flowers. Need to hunt for the botanical names. Anyone listening, please help.

These upside down Gigantic flowers were waiting for the sun to bloom.

They sway majestically  in the cool monsoon winds. On a closer look the flower looks like bird in flight.

The petunia like flowers had covered the mountainsides. The flowers look as if a light is shining within. This attracts the pollinators.
