My response to Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge: Blue-Purple Flowers
Commelina/Dayflower – Wangden Khoibi (in Manipuri)
Blue Pimpernal – called Neel (literally blue) in Hindi, not sure what it is called in Manipuri
not sure which flower this is
I realised i had many photographs of flower in the blue-purple colours and some I had already posted earlier on my blog. I am sticking to the colour Blue. Just for the fun of it, i have arranged them in order of the size of the flowers. Except for the third flower, the others are considered wild/weed. I wonder what the third flower is.
graffiti @ Rishikesh
This must probably be my fifth or sixth visit to the little town. Caught sight of this big-eyed happy tomato trying to eat spaghetti on the walls of Rishikesh not far from the Laxman Jhulla. It was a sunny day and the sunny colours of the graffiti echoed it. The graffiti is signed ‘Bianca Wolff, Australia, EW 15’. Someone sure left her mark!
…. and that makes me wonder why we are so in love with beauty and yet are so suspicious about it.

Blue pimpernal: the little blue beauties
My walks at the nearby park continues. I chanced upon these sleeping beauties (below). A flower after my own heart for the simple reason that it is a late riser like myself! At eight – eight thirty in the morning when most people are up and about, they were still sleeping so I had to come back again for them at a later time – i went around eleven to give them enough time and i found them in full glory like bright little blue stars in the green bed of its foliage. oh yes! I would definitely love to have them when I have my own garden.
