Green this, Garden that

Well, it's Day 5 of our #marathonbloggers challenge, and here I am down with a bad cold, and in no mood to write. So I thought this is a good day to rehash some of my garden photos that I haven't updated on this blog for a while :). Bit of a cheat, but well, better than nothing.

Here's one click that I'm terribly proud of - loved that the lighting and the angles worked out to bring out the beauty of the subject. It's the flower of a guava variety - I thought it was a cherry guava, but that's currently in question. Let me just call it a variety of maroon guava :).


This one's not a great shot(taken in the night) but just a nice memory of my first couple of passion flowers :). It was good that I didn't fuss about the flash and took the photo at least, cos by morning they were all closed up!


That's it for now.. more recent photos coming up soon, seems like the weather or the light or something is never "perfect" when I go to take photos nowadays, perfectionist with minimal knowledge anyone :) ?

  3. I have never paid attention the a guava flower. We destroyed a lot of them while stealing the fruit from neighbor's tree. I guess apology is in order.

    1. Even I never realized until I had this plant as to how beautiful guava flowers are!! And my neighbour has a tree, so duh! The normal guava has white flowers of the same variety.

  4. It's perfectly fine to be not in the mood Aparna! And cheating is game too. Coz in the end the aim is to blog every day. So lets take that in the spirit of the challenge and do it by hook or crook! ;)

    1. Thanks Simran :), that's pretty much the best way to make it work I guess ;).

      Gearing myself up to go and take some fresh photos sometime soon so I can put up a more detailed post soon.

  5. The guava flowers reminded me of the times I have spent perched on trees eating fruits cuz they taste best when there are fresh. ;) I too love gardening, Aparna..I have a small herb corner and a tiny terrace garden. Look forward to some tips and more pictures from your garden. Love, Aparna
