Weekly Photo Challenge : Summer

“Summer” is a topic which brings myriad of pictures and childhood memories for me. If I had to jot them down, it probably would be a long long post….but as much as I dislike the heat, humidity and harassment it brings with it, there are some things which are at their best when the Sun is at his worst πŸ˜›

Deserted Summer Roads…well,almost

Playing all day during the long summer vacations, relishing yummy mangoes, enjoying cold ice-creams and staying put on the hot fiery afternoons….lovely Nostalgia!!

Fiery Gulmohar blossom

Summers are the season for the blooming of the gulmohar trees. Roadsides streaming with the yellow and red flowers and the fiery red blossoms standing stark against the dull trees are a treat to watch πŸ™‚

Well, this is called “Saving the best for the last”. Summers have forever been synonymous with Mangoes for me and trust me the sweet juicy fruit is much more than just a fruit in India then. Its a craze!! Ranging from milkshakes, salads,aamras,sweets to marmalades and jams….you name it and we have already put a mango in it πŸ™‚ But the best way to relish a Mango is to eat it with your hands…direct!! Its messy, its sweet, its juicy and its FUN πŸ˜€

P.S: How can I forget my Frozen Sweeties??

  1. Fantastic summer images – though I thought maybe things would look a bit more parched for lack of rain and blaring sunshine! Here in Sri Lanka one of the favourite ways of eating mangos is to liquids them within their skins, then suck our the pulp = not so messy!


    1. Actually Wanderlust…..the mango is eaten the same in here too (neighbours!!)….even then its fun to get it messy πŸ˜‰ The greens here are still pretty much in colour…waiting eagerly for the monsoon!!


            1. Well, I stay in Mumbai on the west coast and we get the southwest monsoons…infact am expecting the rains to grace us by the 1st week of June..you guys are really lucky πŸ˜›


                1. Yes…its one of my dream holiday destinations. πŸ˜€ and yeah all the pictures have been taken in Mumbai just a week back
