Hard to imagine the splendid Taj West End Hotel (Bangalore) without all those grand foliage. One more example of how Nature enriches our senses. In response to Lesley C Weston's challenge to post pix celebrating Nature. (BTW my niece Anusha would be doing her first catwalk this evening at the hotel.)
My ever so considerate new neighbor has put up a marquee adjacent to our house. That's where he will serve b/f and lunch for about a thousand invitees. And that's how all the cars of all the other buildings will be immobilized.
Finally, the year long torture of banging and clanging and whirring and grating and godawful other noises has ended. They came over and apologized and invited me for housewarming lunch. I don't know if I going.
