How would you like to use this flower as a “powder puff”—well, that happens to be the name of this tree, whose flowers have this ‘tendrily’ softness (I can vouch for that)!
With the sun infusing a glorious glow and the wind caressing away, the delicate pink sure seemed a worthwhile capture… from a trip along East Coast Road, Chennai.
Don’t you think this aesthetic cluster of flowers makes a ready-made bouquet? Arranged naturally!
For many, solitude is oppressive.
But, for some, solitude is sweet, elevating, sacred.
This flower is about 8 inches long—not sure if that’s apparent from the photograph.
It had just rained and the flower was dripping, just like everything else, when I photographed it.
Yet, it seemed like an umbrella to me! Owing to its size and shape, I suppose. And, isn’t that pastel colour too pretty for words?
