A Photo a Week Challenge: Changing Seasons


In my part of my country, coastal South India, there are only two seasons šŸ™‚ – Summer and rainy season. The rains ended in October, The weather was pleasant for a few months and now it is very hot.

The tree in front of our home looks like a huge bouquet. About two months ago there were very few leaves. Then one day the tree was looking fresh and green. Now it is covered with flowers, looking bright and beautiful.


There is a very tall mango tree by the side of the street. The mango season will start soon. But unfortunately this year there are not many mangoes. This tree is full of new leaves and it is believed here that if new leaves grow then there will be no fruits.


It is once more the jackfruit season. There are two jackfruits in our tree šŸ™‚


Seasons come and go. Life goes on. Waiting to see the end of the coronavirus.

Take care dear friends. Stay healthy and safe.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.


  1. What beautiful photos. So nice to see greenery. Our spring will be coming soon and with it, green grass and trees and flowers. The temperatures are already warming up to 10-12Ā°C by day. I think this may pose some challenges in the midst of the pandemic as so many people are anxious to go outside and be in the warm weather. While parks are open for people to walk alone (or with families you’re isolating with), the ‘amenities’ (basketball courts, playgrounds, etc) are closed. But we’re still dealing with people who refuse to stop using them. In the near future they will be handing out stiff fines for doing this. I hope it’s effective and this pandemic passes quickly.

  2. Nice to see what’s going on in your neck of the woods. I have never eaten jack fruit – my parents have a tree but the fruit is never ripe when I visit. Spring is in full swing here in the DC area with trees turning green.

    1. These two will take a month to grow and become ripe. Jackfruits are tasty but cutting them is quite difficult because of the white coloured gum like liquid which oozes out when we cut it. We apply oil to our hands before cutting. Hope you and your family are fine. Regards

  3. Mangoes are to die for and waiting desperately for them to arrive.
    Since I live in north India, haven’t seen any jackfruit tree ever before.
    South India’s beauty is incredible and the cultural history needs no exaggeration,this is what I am looking forward to my next tour.

    Ma’m do have a look at my work.
