Ever since winters have gone on a break here, Manchester has been on a color riot. I have never seen such a mind-boggling variety of flowers before and that too within a radius of a kilometer of my house. So, a brand new camera and a plethora of colours to experiment upon was reason enough for me to get started on my expedition.
Right now, the city is covered with innumerable varieties of flowers, a few of which are already been shed on the roads and parks in the form of innumerable petals. Believe me, the beauty of thousands of petals whirling on roads as the buses rush past OR the beauty of parks covered under a heavy blanket of petals with is something hard to pen down. So, here goes.
The city has an overdose of the pink flowered trees. Don’t ask me the names because I don’t have the slightest clue. During the months of April/May, the trees will be filled with such pink coloured flowers which would later fall and adorn the streets and parks. More photographs later.
Tulips are another favourite here. You will find them in the gardens of numerable houses.
These Lotus shaped flowers are also abundant. These are also the first ones to fall. The trees look really beautiful completely covered with them.
The grass all around the city is covered with these very tiny yellow flowers.
When I saw these blue flowers, I thought, they should be called Bluebells. And voila! That was their name.
Well, this is what I was talking about. The pink flowered trees. This is a park near Rusholme. I got down from the bus to take a stroll and was awestruck by the beauty. And can you see the petals strewn over the ground?
No? Have a closer look!!
Well, that was it. Before going, I would also like to add two of my favourite photos from my collection. They are nowhere related to the topic of the post but are worth sharing. The first one is that of a cemetery near my house. Somehow it reminds me of a huge dormitory where all the children are sleeping. 🙂
The second one is that of the Manchester Eye. I love the clouds at the backdrop!
That is all gents and ladies. Over and out.
p.s. If you want any of these photos, just let me know.
