“Beauty in the most unlikely places—”
A place where it would have been easy to otherwise miss this beautiful tree that stands quietly in a corner! I wonder how many residents in my building have noticed this beautiful tree growing up from a neighbouring compound wall? Not many I guess. Continue reading
This is said to be the tallest tree in Lalbagh Gardens. It is estimated to be over 150 years old, slightly over 50 metres tall, and is now a protected heritage tree. Historically, 150 years could well be considered the blink of an eye. Continue reading
