Blooms in Uttarakhand

Never seen neem flowers in this colour before!

Mango blossoms were particularly thick in these parts.


Palash again


Wild roses

Rhododendrons were everywhere!

Rhododendrons up close. 
Puttachi loved them.
She kept picking up fallen flowers
 and carrying them back to the room.
Rhododendron squash (Buransh squash)
is pretty refreshing :)

No idea what flowers these are.

The last photo appears to be of Magnolia, Shru. I couldnt enlarge it. If you can send me a close up, I could confirm it for you.

Lovely pics!. It was so refreshing to look at the pictures. The actual visit must be just wonderful.

Wow! That was beautiful, and informative for someone who doesn't know a rhododendron from a magnolia.
