    31st July, early Morning 02:00 AM, … called me on my mobile to inform me that he will be picking me from my residence. We had made a plan to visit Purandar Fort. This is for the first time we were to come face to face. I had been interacting with him for so many years but never- ever got an opportunity to go on a Flower-hunt together. Ceropegia’s were in our mind but more than this, it was the exitement to meet. Within no time we reached Pune where we were joined by .. and ….
    Almost by morning 8:00AM, we were on top of Purandar. It was raining and not a good weather for photography. Nevertless, we had a wonderfull experince interacting as well as capturing some flora from Purandar.
    Beautiful flowers of  Thalictrum dalzellii (श्वेतांबर) were literally dancing  along with the cool breeze and rain showers. Looking very pretty. We could not resist capturing this.
It was a memorable trip.
    Thalictrum dalzellii is the Flower Picture of the Year 2010 from my side.
I take this opportunity to share a small poem written by my Son (Master Shantanu) on the Rain..

         ” Water droplets every where,
            now it is time to cheer;
                   Rain has brought along a lot of Joy,
                   Note book paper has become a paper boat toy;
           Paper boat is travelling along with the Stream,
           Riding on the real boat is one of my dream.
                    Clouds are playing Hide & seek,
                     Nature is full of many such tricks.
           Green fields and Wild Flowers,
           All enjoying pleasant Showers.
                     Lets join them and go on a Trek,
                     It is good to have one such break. “

– It was such a thrill to go through the poem as well as your posted picture.  .. among the greatest flower hunters on the group.

– PLANT EXLORER was a better word. Will tell you after few weeks why (Actually I am writing an article on
it INFAMOUS CASE OF XZXZXZXZXZ. This proved out to be the most infamous plant ever described in the history of botany.). But we shouldnt use HUNTING as a word to describe ourselves as it sounds a bit unethical.

How the anthers are too much colourful here as against those we have seen on Purandar.
