i keep wondering every time i see the kanikonna,and its relation to vishu! how does this happen?most of our other plants are not seasonal,i guess.but this one,never fails to bloom during vishu time.amazing.

Meerasworld, Kanikkonna trees used to flower regularly towards the second half of March. But in recent years the trees start blooming in February. Botanists attribute this to Global warming.
