The funny(?!?) flowers are here

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

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

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!

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˜›

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

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

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.

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

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.

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!

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!

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

  1. Such lovely pics! and lovely flowers! The variety here is mind boggling, isn’t it? Even the roses – what variety! A neighbour of ours has huge bunches of yellow roses! they look so beautiful!!!

    Loved this post!

    • Thanks Smitha. Yes! Exactly! every day I see a specie which I have never see before. Its amazing. I am glad that I am here during this period of time. πŸ™‚

  2. “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..

    • 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.

    • 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™‚

  3. 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 :-/

    • 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!

  4. 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™‚

    • 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.

  5. lovely pics. Some of them are really interesting — yeah, more than beautiful, interesting! πŸ˜€

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

  6. Beautiful pics Amit:)
    all the flowers are beautiful and well..quite different from what one is used to seeing…

    Congratulations on the award:)
    you deserve it:)

  7. 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.

    • 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.

  8. Colombia on a whole, its a hot place but Bogota is very cool. Its like a hill station. Weather is damn good there πŸ™‚

  9. Congrats on the awards.

    N the pics r beautiful .. appreciate ur photography skills πŸ˜‰

    The familiar rose, the pink bouqet, the red bulbs – luved them all πŸ™‚

    Share some more Amit, will ya :O
