Am joyous to have identified the hitherto elusive Himalayan Chestnut Tree and thus re -blogging the same.

Enchanted Forests

When I opened the window at Mussoorie,Uttrakhand ,India in the Western Himalayas I was overwhelmed by a Sea of Trees covered with multi hued blossoms.

“Have been fortunate  after many days to now identify the flowering  Sea of Trees as those of The Indian Horse Chestnut.”

On a closer look through the dense Foliage I see the Haunted Home of the Swallows. ( do see an earlier blog titled  UP IN THE SKY ). Silly me, The Swallow had been pointed towards the their home all along.

A zoom in reveals glorious blossoms in pink, yellow and white buzzing with Butterflies. If you wish to see more of the butterflies do see an earlier post titled SMITTEN BY NATURE along with the Feature Image.

  3. From your pictures, Mukul, the tree looks quite similar to the chestnuts that we have in the UK. I am intrigued by the haunted swallow home, though. It looks almost as though it might be an abandoned church.
