365 days of flower photography

I was browsing through Discover WP the other day when I came across a post on 365 day photo challenge.

One photo per day for 365 days! Sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? With a lot of flower photographs in my archives, I decided to give this challenge a try. Since I will be posting only flower photographs, I have titled this challenge as 365 days of flower photography. If you wish to join me, please do so – need not be just flowers! You can post about the places you visited or gardens, pets, anything and everything under the sun… including the sun!

I will be starting posting for this challenge from the 1st of June,2017. The flowers that grow in our garden, the ones I found in flower show or during my trips – I will be including all of these.

Posting everyday for the next one year is a very challenging task. But it’s worth the effort and risk, isn’t it?

See you all on the first of June. Ciao 😀

CFFC: Gardens

Cee’s Fun foto challenge theme for this week is Gardens. I live in the garden city of India – Bangalore so how can I not participate in this challenge!! 😀

Which garden am I going to show you guys today? Lalbagh Botanical garden – Flower shows, Ikebana exhibition, workshops on terrace gardens, mushroom cultivation and many more! A long list of activities, isn’t it?

 

Fasten your seat belts and sit tight! We are going on a roller coaster virtual tour of Lalbagh!

The buds grow really quick! You can see that from the following two photographs. Both were taken on the same day – one at sunrise and one after sunset.

From bud to bloom to wilting, this fireball lily takes around 8-10 days. Currently, there are three such lilies in our garden and I see a lot more buds sprouting up. 😀

For now, this is going to be one of my last posts on Whakaahua. I am going on a short break. I promise I will be back soon with a lot of photographs.

Thank you! 🙂
