The Flowers of March Rival the Tomb's Glory
If you have the good fortune to be in New Delhi in March, you can enjoy all of the usual tourism destination, but don't neglect to notice that they are all bathed in the colors of Delhi's March flowers.

This glorious flower, discovered in the gardens that surround Humayun's Tomb, might have gone unnoticed had I not looked up. These flowers were just budding on their branches and had not yet started to drop as they did a week or so later and still are a few weeks since. They are huge, waxy, utlra-vibrant flowers that drop from the tree with the seed pod attached. Just gorgeous.

So go to Humayun's Tomb, by all means. And enjoy this architectural inspiration for the Taj Mahal (it really is breathtaking), but leave time to wander in the gardens that surround the tomb and discover floral surprises at every turn.
