Flowers of Kalimpong

Late last year I had gone to Dr Graham’s Homes, a colonial era boarding school in Kalimpong for some documentation work as part of the office. It was early November so it was cold and grey as that part of the country regularly gets at that time of the year. In spite of the dreariness there were splashes of colour here and there fighting it out to survive the few days of warmth before winter sets in. Here are a few pictures from then.
