Two Colours of Summer

Yellow and Purple usually are the colours of the arrival of summer in Bangalore….

Here’s the yellow of the Tabebuia:

This is the purple of the Jacaranda:

The African Tulip, by now, has almost finished flowering, and soon we will have carpets of yellow and purple…on the roads where BBMP spares these trees, that is!

  1. Lovely pictures. These are the few pleasures that we have in this messy city today. Gone are the days when all the roads used to look colourful – red, yellow, violet and pink. May flowers are hard to find these days. The entire stretch of Hebbal road used to be a treat to our eyes. Now, it is like a desert road. Sad that Bangalore has entered the international map – people are only destroying its beauty at break-neck speed.
