Flaming Forests

We’ve talked about our trip to Thekkady and Gavi, in Kerala, South India,  before. I was just going through the pictures that my brother, John Campos,  had taken on that trip. I saw a common thread that went unnoticed earlier. I’m not sure whether it was just a coincidence,  but it seemed that most of the flowers that were abloom in the forest during our visit were a shade of red. The forests were truly aflame with beauty!





I hope we succeeded in brightening up your day!


Today we’re on F of the Blogging From A to Z April Challenge.

    Happy A-Z! Visiting from the GBE 2: Blog On FB group.

  16. Oh, you did. In a beautiful way, thanks to you and your brother.

    I live in a place called Gulmohar Park, the roads of the colony are lined with Gulmohars on either sides and it is such a pretty side in the summer

    I’ve noticed often that flowers tend to bloom in a certain color group. Even if I hadn’t had a calendar, I would have known what month it was by the flowers in bloom. And those you pictured are truly in flame. We had bursts of yellow in Mistretta, but never red or orange, my favorites. 😀

  18. I am soooooo ready to see flowers again! Thank you for bringing some color to our lives.

  19. Stunning photos. I’d love to see a forest like this.

  20. Gorgeous blooms!

    I imagine a butterfly or bird with a long tongue enjoys those flowers, too.

  21. Those are gorgeous! I’ve always wanted to go to India, and that’s just even more inspiration for me to add that to my list of things to do before I die!

  22. Beautiful pictures. Flowers always cheer! In a month or two, we’ll be able to look down from our terrace to see a sea of gulmohars in bloom! Thank you!

  23. Flaming indeed 🙂 Lovely shades of red 🙂

  24. Love to see red colour flowers. Really beautiful !
