Stuff I picked up on the walk

The slanting tree -it has the most inviting bench to one side ..



When I was small there were ducks here , now there are fat fish fed by kind fat men...

I have no idea what these flowers are called but they fell ..

from this tree.....



Since the morning was quite hot , this was in order ..

followed by this ....
and this ..

ooh, eve. you shouldn't put up pictures like these! My mouth is watering so much, it's flooding, looking at the puchka, dahi papdi & watermelon juice (with chaat masala?)

I agree with Hillgran. You absolutely should not - see now you have got me craving for food and I don't have any of those nice things so I will go and stuff myself with some junk. WHOOOOOOAAAAAA! all your fault.
Lovely pictures, this and the previous one.

Pretty flowering tree.Does it give off any nice odor? Right now the ground under my apple tree is lined like that only with apple blossoms and my whole back yard has a sweet applw smell.
I love the taste of watermellon juice. Tasty looking food too.
