The light and life in Lalbagh

The morning sun shone through the trees as we entered Lalbagh today…

The trees and the light together gave the effect of a painting!

The light shone on these flowers…

It turned the sky blue as a backdrop for this magnificient Brahminy Kite:

Truly, Lalbagh is a magical place of light and life….

It was a wonderful Christmas; we might not have celebrated the birth of the Son, but we certainly enjoyed the birth of the Sun!
