7-day Nature challenge – Day 4


Thanks to Amy (do click the link!) for nominating me for this challenge. She’s a terrific photographer; her macro work and her shots of Texan parades are a treat to behold, not to mention her Grand Canyon vistas!

A few weeks between winter and summer, that’s spring in Northern India. Flowers are all abloom around the end of February, but the Kachnaar blooms a little before the rest. The flower is lovely (though the buds used for certain dishes are rather bitter to the taste).

No nominations as usual. 🙂


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. How do you know the names of all these flowers!!! I’ve seen this flower but we do not use it in our cooking.
