Life is all about choices and finding your way to your destination. I particularly enjoy playing up for this photo challenge run by Cee because it gives me freedom to click anything which depicts a ‘way’…. it can be a walkway, road, footpath, trail, stairs or even I can capture while climbing, driving or driving. Isn’t it fun?
I was away from these fun challenges for a while, hopefully should be able to tag along and contribute by bit. These are my choices for this week.
Portulaca Oleracea or Moss rose or Pig weed is an excellent garden filler and now a days it is in full bloom because of bright sun. My garden flower beds are looking pink as I casually dropped this carpet plant, a month ago to fill the edges. Plant is meant for full sun and hot dry areas. It’s stems are soft and fleshy, often reddish colored. Narrow fleshy leaves are covered by single or multi layered flowers, remebles rose.
They are wide open in sun but not on cloudy days. Newer varieties may open in overcast conditions. Tolerates heat and drought; best in poor soil. Self-seeds unless soil is worked. Use for edging, ground covers, hanging baskets, planters and rock gardens.
I keep on growing pansies in my garden every winters as I love to buy unique combinations and varieties but these bunch of flowers caught my attention for the simple reason that I had never seen such a small size pansy. The appearance was also different. This easily becomes my entry today.
Have you ever grown this tiny, pure purple flowers?

Today Judy of Lifelessons shared pictures of Tabachine which is also known as Poinciana. In our part of the world it is famous as Gulmohar tree.
I had clicked few pictures when trees were in full bloom. Infact I wrote a postwhere Imentioned about Gulmohar.
Here are the pics for my dear friend Judy and all of you.
Google uncle confirms it by saying “In many tropical parts of the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It is also one of several trees known as Flame tree. In India it is known as Gulmohar in Hindi.

This week’s theme is Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Turquoise or Teal. I looked around to click few pictures with specific color and the moment I saw this painting of Buddha in my living room I knew it was perfect for the theme. Isn’t it ?
This fruit tree is growing in my garden. Custard apple, one of the local fruit of this belt, grown in abundance, is very sweet in taste.
Look at the Arabian Sea ! The water is giving the perfect reflection of greenish blue color. That’s called Turquoise color, right?
I feel like jumping into the pool ! Crystal clear water ! I can see the tiled floor 🙂
