Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

A bright inflorescence - chethi flowers

Had brought the sapling from a neighbour's garden in Annanad (Chalakudy, Kerala). Blossomed after a year. This is the darker red variety of Ixora coccinea

The flowers immediately bring to mind the lyrics of the popular chethi mandaram devotional
