One thing about Indian summers that I absolutely love is the sight of this beautiful flamboyant Gulmohar tree. There is something magical about the bright scarlet flowers set against the deep green foliage that uplifts your spirits like none other.
The scorching heat of summer somehow becomes bearable just looking at these beauties. Driving to Pondicherry from Chennai during summer vacations on roads lined-up on both sides with these beautiful trees forming an umbrella of fiery red and lush green is one of my fondest memories of those travels.
Imagine driving slowly through a natural pergola formed by gulmohar trees with the fallen flowers forming a red carpet in front of you…Bliss.
