We just about managed to catch a relatively rare specimen of Moulmein Rosewood in full bloom in sector 11, Dwarka. A native of Myanmar and Thailand this tree blooms for only two weeks during the spring season by the end of March. Every spring season, the tree adorns itself with bright pink flowers. The rest of the year it remains inconspicuously lost in the green foliage around.
Throughout Dwarka, many trees are sporting a new look dressed in freshly acquired leaves. The flowers vibrant in colour are adding a new vibe to city streets, and picturesque spectacles to mundane Summer afternoons.

Bougainvillaea, which has a good presence in the sub-city is also in bloom. It adorns the boundary walls of many housing societies of Dwarka. It all looks as if the whole sub-city is flirting with some welcome colour.
Soon the amaltas which also has a strong presence in the sub-city will come out with its flourish of yellow bloom. When that happens, we will be back capturing it. Watch this space for it.
