Its Spring time - the season of colors, blooms & blossoms. I always wonder how beautiful a city would look if it was meticulously covered with different flower bearing trees - a top view would look like a rainbow spread over the city... But its not so. We are rather happy with the top view of our ever increasing concrete jungle...
One fine morning on 23rd February, while I was returning back home after dropping my daughter to school, I happened to notice the road back home that was blooming with fresh newborn green leaves on all the trees along the stretch! It was magical... because just four days back all the trees had shed their leaves & the road was completely covered with dry leaves rustling in soft breeze (that's one amazing highlight of 'garden city', Bangalore!). And just within 2-3 days the entire stretch was green - that fresh & translucent green.
I decided that I had to capture the innocence of Spring right when it had begun to blossom... And so the next day I waited for my daughter to come back from school, had my camera ready, got her little bag packed, finished our lunch quickly and set out in the afternoon to capture the 'Essence' of Spring!
It was the the most beautiful afternoons I've spent - strolling around the forest & neighborhood street, clicking around, telling her about the wonderful leaves, flowers & colors... with soft warm sunshine & cool breeze to keep us delighted all the way!
A few trees were blooming with Pink & many had the amazing Lilac flowers hanging down their branches...
While the stretch of road that leads to our home was beaming with soft sunlight through translucent leaves, the forest behind our house is not ready to bloom, not yet! (Deep Sigh!)
Some trees & weeds are taken for granted & perhaps we never bother to pay attention to the tiny blooming details - Not all who bloom are beautiful... perhaps their beauty lies totally in the eyes of beholder!
The area near her school is surrounded by some exotic trees & greens. I loved clicking there & thankful I captured them well in time!
As for her, she made a very logical point...She said, 'Mamma, the flowers on the road (spread all over) look jusssst like confetti!'
Yes indeed my sweetheart... Its Nature's way of showering us with its confetti & tell us that Life is a Carnival...forever.
