…Cassia Fistula

I was driving to the Departmental store for purchasing in the usual way. But i found something so lovely and colorful this time. Its the CASSIA FISTULA flower… We call it as KANNA POO… But when i googled i found this biological name for this flower 🙂

I was so surprised seeing it as i havent seen this for years of my travel in the same road… Guess i must be less concentrating over the nature on my way    😦 Anyways i was happy to see this and took few shots without the intimation of the owner of the home in which i found this flower. So i was in a hurry and only two of my clicks where good… Was a bit disappointed but still loved it 😀

…Abrus Seed

Have you ever heard of KUNDUMANI??? Not known of it? We in South India used to call the ABRUS SEED as KUNDUMANI… Its one of my favourite collections… I love the color of the seed and a crazy lover of collecting these seeds. I have a huge collection of this seed. I gave a few of it for my sister as she wished to present her friend by making her name out of these seeds 🙂 🙂 🙂

This was how she made it in a cardboard sheet and presented her friend 🙂

Chrysanthemum – Flower Week

This is one of the flower which we can see widely in many places. But i haven’t been aware of the biological names of these flowers. I had a check on the internet and found that its name as CHRYSANTHEMUM. We used to call it as WHITE SEVANTHI 🙂 🙂 🙂

It’ll be cute when its taken closer… I don’t have a better cam with a zooming lens so i end up with a bunch of flowers… 😦 Hoping to display better pictures with a zoomed focus for you all sooner 🙂

This was also taken in the same Ooty trip with my friends… 🙂
