Striking (ThursdayTreeLove)

“Love the trees until their leaves fall off and then encourage them to try again next year” – Chadd Sugg

Like my previous TTL post, this is another solitary tree on a plateau! After the first rains, the sky was absolutely clear and blue and I simply could not walk past without capturing the striking beauty of this tree against the sky. 

 I think it is a Khair (Acasia genus but I havent got down to a specific ID) and belongs to the Mimosaceae family. It is deciduous and is just about breaking into new leaf right now. 

Here are its blossoms..

Dont they remind you of the Diwali Fuljhadi ??

I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove bloghop. Do head over to see some fantastic trees from around the world. Better still, join in!

  1. Hey Archana, This solitary tree is indeed strikingly attractive. It definitely shows the inner strength of that tree. I remembered the poem Solitary Reaper by William Wordsworth which is one of my all time fav. Nice pics too, thanks for sharing them. 🙂

  2. ha ha! yes – like Diwali phuljadhi 🙂
    It's a lone tree and only you can ID it. Thanks for sharing and joining. I hope to see you back on the 23rd

  3. This is a wonderful tree! I actually want to play with the main/top photo. Heighten the colors–make them extreme. Do you mind if I play with it? I won’t post it or share it. Just want to play with it. If you send me your email address, I can send the edits to you
