Flower Power

A sight that never fails to cheer me up is the array of bougainvilleas lining both sides of the overhead bridge spanning AYE. Already half-breathless from trudging up 3 flights of steps, the warm display of rich purple flowers simply takes the rest of my breath away. I wonder if perhaps the exhaust from traffic below actually nourishes their colour. With a lighter step, I trudge on to start my day at work, with my botanic friends reaching out through the restrictive grill, as if to shake my hand. Ah, such simple pleasures :)
