Of the many spectacular sights at Lalbagh Gardens, was this beautiful octopus tree in full bloom. I am told that the tree is native to northern Australia and New Guinea. The next time around i must get a closer shot of the racemes - of both the red flowers and the darker red berries.
I find the racemes just as magical now as i did a year back when i saw them for the first time, shooting out like antennae off the top of the octopus tree in the chennai horticultural gardens.
Happy World Environment Day!
