The many mahogany trees around are in bloom and the ground is covered with the the little star-like flowers. The scent in the evening and early mornings is heavenly!



A photo I was able to take a little while back. You can get an idea of how tiny the flowers are. Yet how much fragrance they release!

I had no idea that mahogany blossomed. How wonderful. I wish I could sit on your veranda and enjoy the mixture of fragrances.

I love all the photographs you take. They are so exquisitely Kerala, that sometimes I almost feel like I can smell the fragrances.

Thank you for making me feel like some hot shot photographer, when it's all done only with my phone camera and edited with picasa!
Wish I could send you all the fragrance! It's a gentle one, not overpowering. I looked up at one of the trees this morning(behind my kitchen yard) and it was just full of flowers.
