It’s been a while since I last posted and I have a perfectly good excuse… gimme a minute to make one up.

Meanwhile, enjoy these pics from our visit to the Hakgala Gardens in Sri Lanka. The images are a bit disjointed because they’re from two different cameras. I was borrowing my cousin’s camera (on account of Fiona suggesting my one sucks), but it ran out of juice half way so I then borrowed my aunt’s camera.


Happy 4th of July!

And that would be in the U.S. Independence in Sri Lanka is on the 4th of February (1948) so no holiday today for us, unfortunately. Although yesterday we had Poya, which is a Buddhist public holiday.

I saw the most peculiar flower, I think, the other day.

My first thought was, “that can’t be real!”

At first I mistook it for some birds on a branch, but it was most definitely part of the tree. I have no idea what it’s called or even if it is a flower or maybe it’s a fruit. If anyone is familiar with the species, I’d love to know.
