Wish u all a very happy, safe and pollution free Diwali celelbration!
Very beautiful card. thanx for sharing.
Here are few pics of Amherstia nobilis taken at the campus of the Univ. of Mumbai, and V J B Udyan (Rani bagh), Byculla, Mumbai.
This tree can be seen only at these two places in Mumbai. It is also said that some one in Juhu - Khar area has also planted this beautiful tree in his garden. But i am not sure.
It deserves to be called as the 'tree of Heaven' because of its beautiful and unique flowers.
it blooms during March- April. Whenever it blooms in Mumbai in 2010, i will let u know on this e group so that u can visit Mumbai and u will
realise that the flowers are much more beautiful than what they look in the photographs. (we, the members of save Rani Bagh Botanical Garden Action Committee will be happy to accompany u for a Rani Bagh tree trail.)
