South India, especially in the rainy season, is very green and lush! Here are some photos of local trees and shrubs on the Stella Maris College campus and around my apartment. This first photo is of a very large, old rain tree- the photo doesn’t quite capture it’s size and beautiful inviting arms that reach down low and across. One of the photos below features the ubiquitous Indian crow, a delightful bird that throngs all over India- and everywhere demonstrates it’s clever antics, chatter, and ability to survive. I’ve always loved crows- their intelligence, their beauty, their family life, their loud caws, and the way they jump and play. Childhood memories…. More on that in another post!
