Flowers in our garden

Two of the brightly coloured flowers in our home garden in January 2012, at Avissawella, Sri Lanka. In the early 1960s I got a beautiful picture of a red rose. A female student seated next to me expressed a wish to own it. I gave it to her. The next day another female student wanted a similar copy. Now I do these photos myself.

Scarlet Minivet, Male, Avissawella, Sri Lanka.

A beautiful bird but quick to take flight and hide among the branches high up.
