WILD BEAUTY

The Chair set out for Anglers besides a lovely Lake was my spot to watch The Eagle Owl perched on the trees at Lakshman Sagar, Pali District, Rajasthan.

An absolutely must visit location close to Beawar and even closer to Raipur.

The picture below was taken courtesy the tiny Wagtail ( do read my blog titled WAGTAIL) taking shelter under the chair.

If you concentrate and make a huge effort you would just about discern small creepers in the crevices between the stone slabs. ( have a look between the right legs of the chair, in the direction the tail points  of this sweet birdie  )

Gorgeous setting 

Let me zoom in and save you all the stress. Wow these gorgeous wild flowers could be little thrones for elves and fairies.

The sunlight reveals the beauty of these wonderful wild  flowers.

It is extremely difficult to identify them as they are not listed anywhere I searched.

A closer look reveals wild beauty

Looking like Morning Glories, but virtually invisible , they are no larger than small pebbles.

A look inside these beautiful wild flowers

This flower resembles a Petunia, but is from being anywhere near the relatively Gigantic petunis.

I wonder what they are called and what  they are famous for?

How did they come about to reside here besides the Anglers Chairs ?

Another unsolved Mystery of Enchanting Nature.

      1. I forgot offhand what the uses are. You might google It And find information on them on a herbal site.
        You also grow neem trees there too right?
        I have one that is about 12 years old now. I move it out in warmer temperatures and bring it in when it starts cooling down.
        The flowers remind me of the smell of a gardinia and orange..maybe a bit of jasmine…it smells sooo good!
        Mine has bloomed a few times and I have saved the seeds. They are viable and I now have another that is 5 feet tall. Till my cat dug in it!!!! Grr….it died.
        But I have other seeds still.
        Very pretty plant.

      2. Neem is native to India. Azhadirakhta indica.It is a wonderful natural herbicide and pesticide. The twigs can be used to brush your teeth, the leaves dried and kept in cupboards keep moths and insects at bay. the seeds if collected make great pesticides. The wood is not attacked by termites. The Botanical name “Azadhirakhta” literally translated means “Purified or Free Blood”.

      3. Yes it is the true neem.
        Do people.ever drink it???
        I dry out the leaves and store them.
        I notice not hardly any bugs bother them. Except we have one weird army green colored grasshopper that seems to eat anything. But I dont think It did any damage.

      4. Beautiful little flowers. Looking closer to the leaves, they look almost like a succulent type plant.
        A very odd and interesting plant indeed!

  1. One of beautiful flowers, dear Mukul, I love them, and you captured nice phottographs. The bird is amazing too, and a chair… This is nice. About petunia, I did a little search, has some of symbolism and meanings, The flower symbolism associated with the petunia is your presence soothes me. Dixon, Illinois is the Petunia Capital of the world. Every year, the Petunia Festival draws thousands of visitors to the city. The streets are lined in petunias. The parade mascot is Pinky Petunia. Petunias are of South American origin and closely related to tobacco, tomatoes and chilis. We have too in my country. I mean these flowers, and pink, white,…etc. They are so beautiful. But I haven’t known well about them till now 🙂 Thank you dear Mukul, Have a nice day and new week, Love, nia

  2. Although the flowers are reminiscent of a convolvulus (Morning Glory), the habitus is shrub-like, rather than viney with tendrils. It puts me in mind of one of the Nightshade (atropine) tribe. Perhaps you’ve made a discovery, and it will be named after you! My doctor is also a first class botanist. Friend him on Facebook, under Dr. Sundar Raman. Tell him I sent you! Send him a photo. He probably knows what it is, and if not it will send him on a quest, as he wants to know every plant and its uses 🙂

  3. Your pretty little mystery flowers might be related to the Morning Glory Bush, which I think is a succulent shrub – they grow in Arizona and arid climates. Either way, they’re beautiful creations!

      1. They will usually have other pictures too that you can compare it to also. And tell what all zones in the world it may grow.
