A walk in the neighbourhood

One Saturday evening, few weeks back we set out on a walk in the neighbourhood. I was lucky to have my camera with me, as the gulmohars were putting on a brilliant display.

There were streets that reminded us of California!

We strolled into the park, and much to my delight, the shell ginger (alpinia zerumbet) was in bloom. The leaves of this plant are different from those of the variegated shell ginger in that they are plain green and lack the stripes of the variegated variety.

Here the gulmohurs don;t look so spectacular now. Really nice view in the second photo. As for the shell gingers, they're a delight! Lovely shots!

Yay for the shell ginger... :)

I love the gulmohars!
