FLOWERS OF GOD

All of us are touched by the Divine but are often unaware of the same.

March in Delhi  is the season for Flowers and the entire vista is magically  draped in blooms. Recovering from a series of surgeries the flowers drew me to  the magic of the Divine Artist providing the much required healing touch.

I return to the world of Blogging and the Enchanted Forests beckon again after a very long gap thanks to the “FLOWERS OF GOD”. They are the first flowers which brushed my senses as they draped over a brick wall as I stepped out of the house after weeks.

This Gorgeous and Voluminous Bouquet of hues of Purple is called the Queens’s Wreath, Purple Vine or Flower of God ( English).

SANDPAPER VINE

Also called The Purple Vine, Sandpaper Vine or The Blue Bird Vine (English),  Petrea volubilis (Scientific name)  is simply a stunner and will take your breath away.

These picture were taken by an I phone and thus not equivalent to those taken from a DSLR but am sharing them though fuzzy as it brings across the hues of Purple and the 5 Star Shape of the Flowers of God.

This creeper has it’s Origins in far away  South America and blooms in late Feb- mid April in Delhi as Spring transforms to Summer in this region of Planet Earth.

I have a lovely Video of Indian Honey bees buzzing around these Royal Flowers but unfortunately am unable to upload them in my current plan. ( maybe sometime in the future).

Am grateful to the Flowers of God which have enabled my return to my beloved Enchanted Forests.

  3. How incredible, Mukul. Just last night I was thinking of how much I missed reading your posts, and now you’ve returned to blogging. The timing couldn’t have been better! If you would have returned even a month later I wouldn’t have known about it, because I’m going to be in the jungles of Belize. And it’s wonderful to see these beautiful Flowers of God!

  4. So glad that you have fully recovered from your surgery’s and are able to get back outside into nature. And, what a great welcome you got from this beautiful flower. I don’t think we have them around here…at least I have never seen them. Thanks for sharing. As for the video, I upload mine to u-tube and then post a link on my blog and that works great. Can you do something like that?
