We are really enjoying. Colours are so beautiful that  they appear unnatural.

That is life Promila ji,
I love mangos but can't grow them here.
I enjoy, what is available here.
It is good, that we can't do everything everywhere.

Lovely flowers. Do they smell of saffron in this condition?

Yes there are many things which we want but we dont get it. I searched
for Annona squamosa today in all the markets of Dehradun with one of
the members of this group Ninad Raut, but couldnt find any :((....

I remember during this season at home, I would just speak up at home,
"MUMMY, I WANT TO EAT SHAREEFA (mummy shareefa khana hai!!)" and my
dad would get 2-3 kgs of it by lunch!!!

Nalini: brilliant colors and photography// in camera or cropping//
looks good....

Promila: I know... you need a snow cover of about 4 month's for crocus
to do well in naturalized state..
or 6 weeks of refrigeration for the horticulture grade bulbs shipped
from Holland for forcing and growing... you could try that...
nurseries sell them in October...try Sunder nursery in Delhi... or
Sutton seeds on the net...
Go figure...

Pankaj: that's DAD for you... In Bengal we call it SITAPHAL... its
out in the market,
this week it seems they pretty good ripe ones...they dont last long
though ...

I wonder if one can ship them to you safely so that a few at least
would arrive so you can enjoy the taste?
If I can find a good way to do it, I can send you some...from
Kolkata..

ANYONE at eflora : please tell me if fruits can be shipped fast and
easy?

Thanks. No these flowers don't smell of saffran, they don't have any smell. Saffran is the crocus, which flowers in Autumn.
I don't have Saffran. But I have Herbstzeitlose (Colchicum autumnale) which is called autumn crocus. Fotos sending in a separate mail.

BTW. what is SHAREEFA?
I searched on net and found a singer withe name Shareefa. Strange!!

Nalini

Shareefa is also called Sitaphal. Botanicaly its Annona squamosa.
