Recently I had been to Sri Lanka and have photographed few plants/Flowers. As this country is part of indian sub-continent, many of the plants are common in both the countries. From today onwards, I’ ll be posting some of the photographs. Kindly help me in identifying them or otherwise enjoy the beauty.
This creeper of pink flowers was simply amazing. We could hardly see any leaves on it. Any clue ?
