Default Night Jasmine - Nyctanthes arbor-tristis

The show has begun, and will continue for a couple of months and more. The plant has started to blossom profusely, we are not able to collect all the flowers. In the dark of night, the plant just looks star-studded and the captivating fragrance permeates the air. Come morning, only a few flowers still stick, the rest having been 'ejected' from their base! A few shots to share:











This is what my mother makes of the flowers:

Default Nice

wonderful images Raghu.
As a kid it use to be my errand to collect flowers from the garden and give them to the elderly for their daily Pooja.
The flowers then used to be fragarant more than showy.

The photos take me to my childhood.
