"The trees are coming into leaf,
like something almost being said..."*
A time of transition, in our city. The bare trees reveal the intricate patterns of their arms, the new buds "relax and spread", the flowers bloom all over - the annual yellow tabubeia flowers kept their February promise.
You go to Lal Bagh Botanical gardens every weekend, in the heart of the city, to watch the young squirrels scamper all over 200-year-old trees. Soon they will be covered in leaves, all set for the summer sun.
