AN AERIAL SURVEY OF A FOREST OF FLOWERS

The pictures that follow beautifully  describes the magic of nature through wildflowers.

This gorgeous tree was bursting with old rose colored flowers near the wetlands near Greater Noida. NOW IDENTIFIED as ATHEL PINETamarix aphylla 

For the drones buzzing in delight  it was  indeed a FOREST OF FLOWERS. The fragrance of the flowers was driving  them crazy with joy. They flew, jumped and cartwheeled all over the flowers.

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.

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.
