Aren't they exquisite?


God is a metaphor for that which transcends all levels of intellectual thought. 
It is as simple as that.

Those gorgeous red seeds in the speckled pods are seeds from the Sampige or Champak tree  (thanks Prabha). The scent from the flowers of this tree create a feeling of euphoria and are used to produce one of the world's most  expensive perfumes called 'Joy'. ( All info from Google Search of course). The seeds of course leave lovers of nature utterly enthralled.

My friend Prabha paints nature that she finds on the road in her beautiful watercolours. She has printed her sketchbooks and they are for sale. 
Do have a look at her lovely work on Curve and Line.

Have been collecting the fragrant 'Akash Mallige' flowers nowadays during my walk.

The bounty nature brings with it every season. I love Bengaluroo ma!

We should do a nature walk someday;-)

The awesome way you take photos or choose elements speaks of indescribable beauty, Priya! Some of the folds makes it look like nature's font. Bangalore is an abode for the artist in us :)

Thanks for blog mention. I am flattered.
