A Flowery Post

By Mridula Dwivedi April 10, 2012 6 Comments



I am really partial to flowers. And I am not good at recognizing them. But there is a huge directory of Indian flowers and I painstakingly browse through it to identify my flowers. So I realized that the one above is called Allamanda.

All these pictures have been clicked at Goa, at the hotel I stayed in, called Sun Village.


There were two swimming pools in the hotel and this one was clicked near the smaller pool on the top. It was very pretty and beautiful out there with lesser people around.

Don’t ask me why this flower is called a false Eranthemum. Nothing looks false about it to me!

I wonder who gets to name these flowers? Red is fine but why ginger I ask?

Blue Water Lily

This is one name that makes sense, it is blue, it is in the water and well it has been called lily since ages I guess?

  4. Hi Mridula!

    Lovely flowers, all of them, beautifully shot, but somehow I love your Bokeh photography skills more than anything else, and not to forget to mention about your camera as well, Canon is producing just amazing results… hats off to you… await more beautiful and stunning pictures of Mt. Everest BC now…

Travel Tales from India & Abroad

I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. I renamed it Travel Tales from India & Abroad in 2016. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video. I was recently featured on Via.com

I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
