Queen Crape Myrtle – Pride of India

Aditi Garden is our favourite weekend destination located in Magarpatta Inner Circle, Pune. The best part of Aditi is that it is adorned with some or the other flowers throughout the year. Before I feel every type of flower in the garden is captured by our camera, there will be a new flower blooming! It was late summer and all the flowering plants were planning to end their show for the season. But, Aditi was still with the Pride of India, the deep pink flowers of pink Crape Myrtle that are popularly known as Queen Crape Myrtle…
