Now, something interesting about the last flower...this time of the year, these flowers bloom profusely in the campus. Being a biologist, I always try to find the identity of each plants I come across...While, I recognized most of the plants, this one eluded me so far..
As I posted it today, decided to search its ID yet again, though my past attempts had been futile. Virtually, I know nothing about this plant, so how will I ask Google to help me?
I typed 'red flower'...obviously I got numerous hits without useful clue...
Then I added a keyword, 'serrate leaves', with a faint hope..guess what!!!!! It was there...botanical name, family and everything else I wanted to know. Feeling good and thankful to the website furnishing the information.
They rightfully say, never quit!!! Give yet another try:).
