Photo taken during a trip to India last year. The photo was taken in Bangalore. I have this bad habit of clicking flowers wherever I see a pretty bunch. 🙂
Flowers are what make a garden worth visiting. And I am always on the lookout for such Gardens. A birdbath, a bench, a few statues, a few bushes and a whole lot of flowering plants. The weather should be perfect too to enjoy this beauty. What better than Bangalore, India.
