Sea Change (ThursdayTreeLove)


These trees caught my eye in the peak of summer because it seemed as if their bare branches had intertwined to create a black and white painting! This effect continued even as I walked closer to the trees. 


Pune, hills, deciduous

This was on 23rd May 2018. 

Just a few days and a couple of showers later, both had undergone a sea change.. Here are the same two trees on the 18th June 2018. 

Trees, Pune, hills

Surprisingly the two-toned effect  continues even once trees are full of leaves. One had lighter green leaves and the one had dark green foliage.



The strangest part is that I have walked on this spot for so many years in all seasons, but it was only last month that I noticed the colours. The trees are beautiful both with and without foliage. 

Nature's beauty is all around us at all times of the year. We only have to look.

I am joining Parul in her #ThursdayTreeLove blog hop. Head over to see some amazing trees from around the world. 

PS. Tree ID: The lighter coloured tree is a Dalbergia sp and the one with the dark bark is a species of Accacia.

These are trees that do not grow where I live. What a quick change!

Only you can id them so well and also bring out that stark contrast so vividly. Thank you for sharing these pictures. It's beautiful to see how trees change.

I love the shape of this tree. The way it spreads out to offer the shade underneath is what I love; quite similar to illustrations of a tree we see in stamps or book logos. BTW, we see a similar transformation here in Jaipur. The tree which goes all bare in summer and then becomes green during the monsoon is part of a phenomenon of survival. I have never heard about the first tree before. So in which location you found these trees?

@arv These trees are on the hills in Pune.
