What all do these unusual Flowers remind you of ?
For me numerous Science Fiction movies flash by as I gaze at these Wonderous Flowers.
The Trailing Tails with a small Light like Bulb at the end reminds me of movies like Star Wars, Aliens and ” Avatar “.
The Lovely Buds looking like little Squids or Plants from the Imaginary Planet Pandora from the Movie “Avatar”.
Native to the Americas they are called “Crimson Star”.
However I spotted them at The Company Bagh ( Gardens) in Mussoorie, Uttrakhand, India at an altitude of 6000 feet ( 2000 metres approx.) in the Western Himalayas.
The Scientific name is Aquilegia caerulea .
These Bicoloured Flowers look spectacular and extremely unusual from every angle that you view them.
Jelly Fish or Squid ?
Observe the Whitish Fur on the Alien Tails.
