  1. Lovely. Are these scented? The most memorable tree, or shrub, rather, that I recall in India was Lantana. For many, many years (10 or more), I had a blossom I had taken from the one outside my grandparents' house in Mumbai. I lost it... I don't even know when. It was pink and yellow. A heavenly scent.

  7. Love the yellow flowers...this reminds me of some bushes we have in our yard...which would probably grow into trees if they weren't trimmed.
