It’s the monsoons, and the perfect time for a quiet, picturesque retreat at a very familiar place – my parents’ coffee estate where I spent many of my childhood holidays. Rich in flora and fauna, with the River Badra enveloping it on 3 sides, this place is close to Kudremukh National Park, an ecological hotspot.
|The famous vakil bench – almost every
old house has one of these.
|A Mangalore-tiled roof with rafters and
an antique light bulb.
|I love peeking through this chik and enjoying the rain|
|The river beyond the coffee plants.|
|I’m not sure if these are China Pinks, but
I spend a lot of time admiring them!
|Periwinkles in the hedge|
|Crown of Thorns|
|More anthurium plants|
|A rain-drenched rose|
|Can you spot the Malabar Grey Hornbill on the tree?|
