Have photographed this Heterophragma quadriloculare
[Varas] tree at Shahapur [near Bombay] to record the
seasonal changes in a single year.
Bombay lies in the tropical zone of peninsular India
[south of the Tropic of Cancer] and therefore enjoys
only 3 seasons.
1.Monsoon- from June to September.
2.Winter- from November to February.
and 3.A long Summer.
Sending some photographs as attachments.
With regards,
Neil Soares

Interesting, Neil ji. It would have been further nice to see a composite image of all seasons.
