drops of blue against ixoraThe monsoon is nearly over and at least one soul in Mumbai is very sad about it. (hint: me!) Today we had a brief burst of rain and it made me happy. The last few days have been disgustingly bright. Here’s a photo from the terrace after the rain, of our wrought-iron garden furniture against the ixora. I love how the drops of water look blue as they swell to unsustainable girth, then plop and shatter, regaining their transparency. I could watch these for hours. Preferably while it’s still raining 🙂 (And I’m singing “Brishti Pore tapur tupur” in my head) (nope, can’t find an mp3 or a video from the movie I’m thinking of.)

    I was just commenting yesterday how I like it when it rains if you have natural beauty as the backdrop. It’s not nice when you have only a concrete jungle because it’s all grey and boring but like you’re pic shows rain and flowers mix very well.

    Today a friend visiting from Melbourne was telling me how they have a drought in Australia at the moment and all the green has disappeared. Maybe we Brits shouldn’t complain so much about the rain we get since we have a lot of nice green to enjoy. Lovely photo.
