The Gulmohar tree

In April and May, at the height of summer, Bangalore was painted red. The city’s Gulmohar trees were in full bloom, with their bright red flowers transforming every street into a tapestry of colour. Towards the end of summer, the flowers fell to the ground and covered the roads with brilliant carpets of red petals. The red blossoms are all but gone now – the last few washed away by the monsoon rains. I didn’t think of posting any pictures at the time, but I’ll post them now since the sun has come out and it feels like summer again. But I'll have to wait until April to see the red blossoms again.
