Spring is in the air but a warmer spring than what one would wish for!  Nevertheless, the Rani Bagh is always pleasant in the morning.

Here are the pictures:

The heritage archway with the two grand baobabs - Adansonia digitata

     










Bronze scupture of the Prince of Wales with the heritage wood conservatory at the back

          












Beautiful old banyan tree.  Paradise flycatchers, barbets, night herons and myriad other birds can be seen in its branches
    














The poor, hapless deer in their stagnant water pool.  Such a crime to keep animals in the zoo.

























Cute squirrel hunting for ants or bees in a flower of the Shaving Brush Tree - Bombax ellipticum





























Spring leaves

























Bat in couroupita tree





















Exquisite and rare Gustavia Insignis, also called Gustavia superba




















Strophanthus gratus flower
















Amherstia nobilis on the wane





















Fallen flower of Brownea grandiceps

















Lovely staff bungalow!
