The gentle west wind hums/ As it blows in from the lake/ Over the fields and swaying palms/ The soul songs of the waves.

Sir, is the photo labeled 'Pala'not a chembakam flower?
Nice pictures - the streets of Chennai do have trees that bloom beautifully in this period.
Anonymous, you have raised a pertinent question. I was not sure whether it is 'pala tree', and that is why a question mark was put on the caption.I thought that it is 'pala' because of the whorl which has around seven leaves.
Raji, I am beginning to discover how beautiful some of the Chennai avenues can be during summer.
I had previously posted comments as 'anonymous'.I am not an expert on this subject, but think that the name 'Ehilam Pala' refers to the configuration of its leaves, not the flowers. Found these two links.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alstonia_scholarishttp://www.keralaayurvedics.com/herbs-plants/trees/ezhilam-pala-alstonia-scholaris-trees-of-india.htmlHave been always enjoying your posts.
Flowers show our love and feelings. The aroma of flowers is liked and admired by everyone.
