powder puff

powder puff, originally uploaded by nilesh.gawde.

Via Flickr:
Common name: Dwarf Powder Puff, Miniature powderpuff
Botanical name: Calliandra emarginata Family: Mimosaceae (Touch-me-not family)

This medium-sized shrub is spectacular when in flower. The blooms are brilliant red and really stand out. The foilage is also attractive with light green kidney shaped leaflets, appearing in pairs. This particular variety grows approximately six to seven feet and is always in bloom. For those interested in bright colours, this is a must. The flowers open 9 to 10 months out of the year (often resting in midwinter) and remain for 6 to 8 weeks, their unusual form and bold color attracting attention despite the plant's small stature. 1 to 2 inches across, these blooms offer a nice foil to the soft green leaves of this 10 to 14-inch-high tree. Outdoors, the flowers are butterfly magnets, their nectar attracting many winged visitors.

view of Vaitarna Dam backwaters from Zarwad Village

These are from my old archives. All photos are taken with film camera Nikon F55 and Nikkor 28-80 kit lens.
The village is exactly at the backwaters of Vaitarna dam, near nashik. By road one can reach this village, from Trimbakeshwar. From Mumbai-Agra highway, near ghoti, one has to cross the Vatiarna Dam on a raft and then one can reach this village. Before construction of Vaitarna Dam, this village was the main Market place. After the Dam was built the market place was shifted to Ghoti and all the development in this region was stopped. My friend , who is in the business of Outdoor advertising in Nashik, purchased a farm land in this village. The photos are taken from her Farm Land. After she started developing the farm, she did rigorous with the government authorities and some developments were done in the village, including a good Tar Road, ST Bus was started to this village after more than 12 years.

I am sharing few photos from this location. please provide your comments.
