May Flower





This is called the 'May Flower'.
It blooms only in the month of May and
stays fresh for fifteen days in the plant.
The stalk shoots from a bulb and after the
flowering , the bulb rests till the next
flowering season .
I saw it in a friend's place yesterday and when
the hostess told me about this , I thgt I'd put it here.

May flower indicates lots of memories to me..
May Flower trees buds indication tells us the annual exam start and summer holidays
after our tiring cricket practice we happily rest under this tree as this is the only tree has shades and flowers
in my school a huge 50years old tree stands just opposite to water tank and shreds double coolness to water.

It's very intresting. The world's favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.May and June Soft syllables, gentle names for the two best months in the garden year: cool, misty mornings gently burned away with a warming spring sun, followed by breezy afternoons and chilly nights.
