Flowers Combo

Wanted to bring out the stark contrast in nature’s colour schemes. So, just juxtaposed 2 different photos.

Flower Power (poem) and June 2017 Flower Show



Flower Power Poem

Note: my poem above is inspired by Lord Emsworth, a P.G. Wodehouse character, who is never happier than amidst flowers. Whenever he visits London (he lives in the country), he feels nervous and irritable. To “soothe his ruffled soul”, he has the habit of escaping to the Kensington Gardens and “sniffing at the flowers” 🙂 And whenever I read those parts, I too feel strangely happy!


Now, here is a virtual flower show to delight you!

Unique in Shape, Pattern, Colour Combo: for Flower Show, Day 26

This Pink – Lavender combination is not quite something I expected to see on a ‘flower!’

We have Sarees and Salwar Kameezes (our own Indian ethnic outfits) sprouting everywhere in this colour combination.

However, a flower of this kind is unique and caught my eye immediately! The black blob (mhm, yuk) as you see is a bee being a bee.


By the way, have you seen Day 25 Flower Show? Another pretty one, with a stunningly patterned bug to boot!

A couple of flowers that seem like ‘husband-wife’ (at least to me): Flower Show, Day 21

I suppose it’s the way these two flowers stood. They somehow struck me as husband and wife!


Note: I perhaps sound like Madeline Bassett, a P.G.Wodehouse character (who thinks whimsical/silly stuff like Stars are God’s Daisy chain etc.), but well, there it is!

And, please take a dekko at my post ‘Ode to Yoga‘–today (June 21) being International Yoga Day and all!
