This was probably the first time I went to the hills in March. While you can visit the hills in any seasons March brings in the spring blossoms. I have seen a bit of blossoms before but this time they were regal!
There were two apple trees inside the home of my hosts at Jagatsukh. And they used to be full of sparrows all through the day! It was such a pleasure to sit around them. One tree was close to an outdoor water tap and Chhavi would keep playing around it. When the cows would come to that point to drink water she would come away running scared of them.
These Apricot Blossoms were flowering quite next to the waterfall near Prini. But there was no way I could include them in the picture. So I was content clicking the blossoms itself.
Flowering Apricot Tree
On my walk towards Kakhnal there was a hotel by the name of Rishi Palace and this Apricot tree was flowering next to it. The railings you see in the background are the hotel boundaries.
When I saw this wild white flowering tree I asked Ramakantji what were they and he said, “Cherry.” Oh well now if I can’t go to Japan I will go back to Jagatsukh to click cherries! I wonder how the tree looks with fruits.
And this is the final picture of the delightful spring blossoms I sighted at Jagatsukh this time. And as I said before I am not done with flowers yet.
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. 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 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?
