Wayanad - Contd

On day 2, we woke up a little bit late, around 8 o'clock, as everybody were tired of the travel. The hotel was situated at picturesque place near Vythiri.
 The place was filled with fog and it cleared only in between for a few time. It was raining, so the view was outstanding, but it played spoil sport with our plans. We had planned to visit  Chembra peak, the highest peak in Wayanad. But with rain, it was impossible. So we decided to change our plan.

 Our first destination was decided as Banasura Sagar Dam, an earth dam built on mud only. And we planned to visit some tee plantations on the way.

As expected,

Tabebuia Argentea

  If you are traveling in bangalore, you might have noticed some trees filled with yellow flowers. The flowers are covered in such a way that the leaves are not even visible. Now we can say that bangalore is filled with yellow flowers, because it is seen almost everywhere.

  I was wondering which this tree is. Then i found an article in a news paper about it. The name of the tree  is tebebui argentea!!! It came from Brasil. I wonder who planted it in Bangalore, and that itself in a large scale.

  It will start flowering at the start of summer. The lifetime of the flowers is not much. After some days it will start falling down, and the foot of the tree will be covered with dried flowers.

I managed to take some photos.
