Color burst-2

The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most.
– John Ruskin, The Stones of Venice

My beautiful city Chandigarh, in April is a sight to behold, with almost  all the trees flowering. This picture features the beautiful Flame of the Forest tree in full bloom. It’s also called by the names Palaash and Dhak in vernacular (Hindi). After I clicked this picture, I was tempted to caress a branch full of the vibrant flowers, but quickly had the good sense to withdraw my hand! There were some more living beings too, who had found the blooms irresistible. There was a swarm of honey bees hiding in the deep hollows of the flowers enjoying their nectar treat! So, I thought I better let them be and let them enjoy their dinner in peace.
