Dear Friend,
           If you have visited Assam,you must have seen a tree known as IRON WOOD OF ASSAM in English( Nohar in Assamese,Naag-kesar in Bangla,scientifically it is known as Mesua Frrea ).At this time of the year the tree is conspicuous,with bunches of white fragrant flowers.I am sending an image of this flower with bees having feast on it.You may like it.
Regards

Nice pictures Col (Retd) Bimal Sarkar. The perfume during blossom must
be all over the place.

Yazdy.
