I had a couple of things I had to cross of the ‘to do’ list this morning, but Cee demanded I take my camera too, so I could shoot her something new today. I obliged, naturally, but as Cee also demands only three, or perhaps four shots, that’s all I can show you. I’ve called the little series Four Out of Context – but that’s not quite true, because they were shot today, close to home, and are snapshots of a couple more things I love about Sri Lanka.
If there’s a corner, there’s sure to be a shady tree – or put another way, if there’s a shady tree, there’s sure to be a tuk tuk!
It’s not just French and Italian farmers who beautify their fields. Here, at the bottom of the hill, one of the farmers has planted a row of bright Zinnias around his field of ripening paddy.
Amarasiri needed to refuel, so we stopped at the petrol shed. Beside us was a perfectly clipped Ixora hedge just coming back into bloom.
And finally – captured just before the gathering storm became insistent we head for home – a tree in the new park they’re building near Parliament, just to the northeast (yes, I know, it’s in the water – I promise I’ll put our tree and the new park into context soon!).
Pop across to see the remaining leaf (and late autumn flowers) Cee posted, and view other challengers.
