December is when the Indian Clock Vine (Thunbergia mysorensis) blooms. The buds are seen around October and by December, the flowers drop down in maroon-orange showers...what a feast to one's eyes this sight makes! The clock vine in our garden has climbed on to the Sampenga tree and has completely robbed it of its personality! Here are a few pictures from this season. Click to enlarge, for better viewing.
