I was going to write a serious post this week, but then I got up early on Sunday morning and thought of taking a walk in the garden which surrounds my apartment. I saw a few species of flowers which I have never seen in my life before and thought of taking some pictures and that is why the serious post will have to wait for a few more days! πŸ™‚

There were so may colours around that I went crazy clicking. Have a look and you’ll know what I mean! And, oh, before I leave you with the pictures, I would like to thank Archie for giving me the Treasured Blogger Award! Thank you Archie and here are a few flowers for you! πŸ™‚

Flowers

DSCF7020

The blue flowers are like a ready made bouquet. They are blooming all over the city right now.

DSCF7026

These are leaves, not flowers, as you can see. They were green once, but then they started turning white from the boundaries(as you can see the ones in the background) and then completely white. What happens next? Will they turn Red? Orange? Or fall dead just like that? Kya Hoga! Jaldi hi dekhenge! Hum Log! Railgaadi! Railgaadi! Ahem! Sorry, got carried away!

DSCF7036

Rose! Thank God! One familiar flower! The Roses here are quite huge. They are infact humongous. If you are walking down a road and feel tired, you can just sit in one of them and take some rest. No kidding! And, by the way, all that water is dew drops, in case you are thinking that I spat on them to add the effect! πŸ˜›

DSCF7038

The bouquet again! This time in Pink! Just what you need for an angry girlfriend! πŸ˜‰

DSCF7041

DSCF7077

DSCF7084

I know! This is a leaf! This was the lone red one in a huge green bunch. The outcast! Maybe the bohemian.

DSCF7044

I call them the red bulbs! They are the first one I see every morning because they are growing in bunches just outside by bedroom window.

DSCF7049

DSCF7080

Dewdrops again. No! I did not pee on the plant! You guys are disgusting! How can you even think like that?

DSCF7067

Ok! This plant reminded me of Independence day. Not our independence day! 😐 The movie! The big blue ones are the large mother ships which stayed above the Earth’s atmosphere and the small blue ones are the small alien ships which were sent to fight our aircrafts! πŸ˜€ Do you think I am watching too many movies? Oh! And do you see the green leaves below? That is the Earth! Right now the alien ships are all cuddled together and having some sort of a conference as to which city to attack first.

DSCF7089

Do you see the small yellow insect? Well, that is the new micro robot I am working on right now. Its not perfect yet. It can’t fly(although it doesn’t need to but I am trying to add that functionality). The project was funded by Vicks Vaporub. They want a new product where this micro robot will come loaded with an advanced form of Vicks fumes. You just have to leave it into you nose and it will travel inside your body and by morning, there won’t be any trace of cold and cough.

Are you thinking where this machine will end up finally? In your commode, ofcourse!

DSCF7070

Capillary action at work I guess! No, I did not inject it with blue ink!

DSCF7093

Again not flowers! But look at all that spit dewdrops!

DSCF7099

Hope you liked the show! Now go and do something meaningful! πŸ˜›

    “I got up early on Sunday morning and thought of taking a walk in the garden which surrounds my apartment.”

    Dude, how can you wake up early on Sunday morning? This means you are not having any night outs on saturdays..in any case, you should be chasing girls rather than flowers on a bright Sunday. πŸ™‚
    Nice pictures btw..

    • Amit July 14, 2009 at 12:24 am - Reply

      Well, I sleep less. So even if I sleep at 12.30 am, I can very easily get up at 6.30 am. 6 hours sleep is more than enough for me. πŸ™‚
      No. No night outs right now. πŸ™‚ Just enjoying my solitude, books and movies.

    beautiful!! why dont u sign up on flickr? And trying taking some macro shots of these flowers. Those will look better.

    • Amit July 14, 2009 at 12:29 am - Reply

      I have signed up for Flickr but I am too lazy to go and upload my pics there. I just want to do all the stuff at one place. The thought of branching out just makes me more sleepy. πŸ™‚
      Most of the shots are super macro. πŸ™‚

  16. Shefaly July 14, 2009 at 2:57 am - Reply

    Next stop, figure out what they are called. πŸ™‚ I saw hydrangea, snapdragon, phlox, petunia, fuchsia in your pictures. The rest I shall have to check too :-/

    • Amit July 16, 2009 at 12:50 am - Reply

      Yeah, but how! I wish Google had created some sort of a software where you can put the picture and it will tell you the name! Now that will be something! πŸ™‚
      Thanks to you, now I know the names of a few of them!

    Beautiful flowers!

    We have hydrangea in our garden.

      Thanks Solilo!

  18. Vijaya Bharat July 14, 2009 at 9:06 am - Reply

    Though not all, but I saw many of these in colombia πŸ™‚

    Particularly there is a story about the flowers which are in 3rd photograph in colombia. Colombians believe that if these flowers are there in their garden, their daughter’s marriage won’t be successful. Thats why these flowers can be seen only in public places, not in many gardens πŸ™‚

    • Amit July 16, 2009 at 12:53 am - Reply

      Is it not a hot place? I don’t think these flowers bloom in hot environments.
      I think you are talking about Hydrangea? Here people have them in their gardens.

    Wow, the flowers are really really beautiful, even the leaves! I’m jealous of your sunday morning walk!

    I just know the blue ones are hydrancheas (the ones you’ve said are already in a bouquet).

    Amazing pictures! Tonic to the eyes! May I ask, what kind of camera was used to capture it all (and what is meant by macro according to one of the previous comment?). Of course, the photographer is awesome, for he posted the pictures for us! Thanks.

    • Amit July 16, 2009 at 11:55 pm - Reply

      Thanks Neha. πŸ™‚ I use Fujifilm S 8000 fd.
      Well, there are various setting in the camera(other than zooming) which can be used to take closeups. Macro and SuperMacro are two such settings. Supermacro can be used when you want to take a picture from really close. It just zooms on the nearest object and blurs everything else.

    Good to know all that. Thanks.
