Overcast and sunny sky

It was an overcast evening with the sky set for a heavy rain. We were hearing loud roars of thunder.But in a short while, it became windy and the dark rain clouds broke up.The sky was a glorious mix of dark and bright clouds.

The fly

The new balsam plant (Impatiens Balsamina) has started flowering. It’s bright red flowers amidst green leaves look beautiful. Probably, this fly too could not resist the bright colours.. it came to visit and take a closer look.

Another little fellow was also visiting… he had landed straight into the flower and busy exploring it inside out.

The Curious Snail

After a week of thunderstorms, the last two days have been sunny and bright. Many reptile neighbours have started dropping by for visits. There was a snake in the backyard 2 days back, followed by nightly rush of flying drywoodtermites, and a variety of snails.

We saw this big snail today. It was slowly making his way towards the front yard steps, while I focussed the camera.

It changed direction and started moving towards me. It came close, waving it’s feelers. It inched close to the camera, almost touching the lens.

I stood still, afraid that I would make the snail withdraw into it’s shell. It  waited for sometime, turning and waving it’s feelers around.  By then, I had stepped back… sensing nothing around, it turned back and continued it’s walk.

Sprouting beans

Black eyed beans are a regular part of my kitchen. I use them to make curry and dal. A few weeks back, there were small bugs in the beans container. There were so many bugs that I had to throw away the beans. I bought a new pack and forgot all about the wasted ones.

We had heavy rains last week. Now there are patches of saplings in the backyard.  They are the same wasted beans… Sprouting new shoots.

Here they are… small leaves peeping out of the beans. Nothing goes waste here.
