                       With regards,

Hi,

  Photographed at my farm at Shahapur on Sunday.  Oroxylum indicum [Tetu, Ullu] also called the ‘Indian Trumpet Flower’ or ‘The Sword of Damocles’, though endangered is fairly common here. A few years ago [in July ‘06] with the onset of the monsoons had witnessed seeds germinating en masse on the ground as they lay in their dehisced pod. Unfortunately had not captured the images then.

   Sending a few photographs.

                   With regards,

                      Neil Soares.
