The monsoon rains turn the Indian countryside a lush green and many little flowers appear all over the place. Here are a few common ones
Begonias are found throughout the tropical region and many varieties are grown in gardens. These wild varieties appear and flower only during the monsoon and post monsoon months (June to October).
The common fringed flower vine (Trichosanthes cucumerina) is to be seen twining in all directions and bearing little squiggle edged flowers.
The bright blue flowers of Commelina benghalensis brighten the overcast days.
The tiny Chitrak (Plumbago zeylanica ) flowers in forest paths.
