|Trees bloom in pink at Richmond Park, 13 11 12|
The colour of the day is pink! Noticed this on my way back from buying sparklers the other day. I took this picture with the phone on my camera, so it hasn't really done justice to the breathtaking wash of colour that hit my eye.
I'm not sure Mr. Krumbiegel planted these trees in particular, but he was responsible for the variety of blooming trees around this city that dress Bangalore in one colour or another, all year around. Whenever I look at a blooming tree, I ask God to notch up another blessing on Mr Krumbiegel for his lovely legacy to this city.

More breaking news - the mahogany tree's "potatoes" have split open and their whirligig seeds are ready to catch the next breeze. I love these seeds, and often collect the ones that fall on my terrace. If I'm lucky, I catch our building's senior citizens sitting downstairs on a bench after their evening walk, and surprise them with a shower of whirligigs from the terrace above.
