On that particular day in Barcelona at the zoo, there were a few proud peacocks (Pavo cristatus) strutting their stuff to very disinterested peahens! Growing up in India, the peacock was a relatively common sight, and their plaintive calls at sunset time during summers usually heralded possible rain!
As promised, a picture of the red anemone flowering at home and complimenting the blue anemome that I posted previously.

A tulip from my garden. I love the hint of yellow on the deep colours of the tulip suggesting a flame!

This Schlumbergera truncata in my home is still flowering, well into April when I was expecting this to begin to set new branches for the coming year!

I also have a bright red anemone flowering at the moment in my garden (pictures follow soon!). I have eliminated the background to better focus on this flower using Adobe Lightroom.
