Yellow Flowers

Stamens of a yellow flower growing wild in India near the Aravelli Hills in Rajasthan.

 

Here’s a picture of the flower on the slide – unfortunately it has disintegrated quite a bit over time.  It is a small yellow flower that grows on trees in the area

Below are two pictures of the area taken from a moving vehicle.  In the first, I think you can see one of the trees with the flowers.  The second has a bush with yellow flowers but that is not the same – we were told that the bush was invasive and the place we were staying had gone to a lot of trouble to eradicate it from their grounds because it was stifling native plants.  In contrast the yellow flowering tree is native and useful.

    Also; while at it – we would love to see the picture of Aravili hills as well. For some us stuck on the opposite side of the world; the context means a lot. It would be incredible to see the surrounding this flower calls home 🙂

    Welcome to the foldscope community..

    Cheers
