FINDING MY WAY

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – November 30,2016

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.img_2797img_2889img_2902IMG_0729

Flower of the day: Crown of Thorns

Day before yesterday Judy shared her crown of thorns in bright red color that was the time I was reminded of my cluster of flowers which I cooly ignored while clicking and sharing the new flowers in my garden. Probably they are not as bright as they were two months before. The dark pink color is faded now because of harsh sunlight.  Still they are worth sharing, right? 

Flower of the day:  Crown of thorns

Flower of the day 17.5.2016: Hibiscus Rosa Sinensis

Another beautiful flower from my garden is Chinese rose or Hibiscus rosa-sinensis which looks absolutely stunning and it is a multi layered flower in bright red colour. The shrub is 1 to 2 m tall. Generally the flower has five red or pink petals . The fruit is red hip 1 to 2 cm in diameter. This one looks like a rose because of more number of petals. 

I have got the same flower in white which is equally beautiful. They are big flowers and attracts bees. Butterflies also love them. 

Flower of the day: Chinese rose/ hibiscus

One Word Photo Challenge: Bulb

When I clicked this huge hanging lamp in one of the lobbies of  Hari Mahal, now known as Vivanta Taj in Jodhpur, I thought of using it in my blog later but Jennifer’s One word Photo Challenge: Bulb is perfect to share the pictures below.
