Fall colours in Summer #ThursdayTreeLove – 1

Last Fall when I went to New Jersey, I was amazed at how the foliage changed from green to brown, yellow and orange even before they finally fell off in November. Though we in Mumbai are facing a blazing summer, there is no sign yet of the brilliant red and orange blossoms of  Gulmohar which is, quite frankly, a rare species with new buildings taking up the place of old trees. However, Parul’s post brought back memories of my Fall Foliage in New Jersey so I thought I’d share my Fall colours in Summer.

For some strange reason, whenever I see a tree, the words of Joyce Kilmer resound in my mind.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

Linking up with Parul’s #ThursdayTree Love
Hope you enjoy my Fall colours in Summer

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


  1. Beautiful fall colours, Sunita. Thanks much for sharing these. I can see how everywhere the weather is getting rather unpredictable. Nothing like the sight of a Gulmohar in full bloom! Perhaps you need to wait a few more weeks for that!

    1. I agree. It’s harder to travel in India in the cold weather than it is to travel in the US….We Mumbaikars are not used to bundling up in layers and woollies….So I will have to see Fall in the US rather than in India 😉
