I never realized how beautiful Zambia was/is until the last time I visited. I normally prefer visiting in March when crops are ready and vegetation is still green. However, family matters caused me to visit during the height of the dry season this year. I knew everything would be brown, except plants that are watered. I took some photos of vegetation and was surprised that some wild plants are in full bloom in spite of the dry season – something I had never noticed before.
- Jacaranda tree a kilometre or so from my parents’ home. I used to take the beauty of these trees for granted, but no more 🙂
2. A wild plant that has bloomed after a fire
3. Wild thorn tree.
4. Bougainvillea bush
5. Mango a kilometre or so from my parents’ place
6. A wild flower. It seemed so random, and beautiful, in the midst of dead plants.
7. Poor dead butterfly in the middle of the road.
8. An ant lion is surely hiding somewhere in there.
9. More wild flowers along a tiny stream in a nearby town
Zambia is really a beautiful country green vegetation or not. I was too busy with family matters to take many photos, but I am still enjoying the few that I took.
