a place to showcase

Fields of gold

We passed so many sarson plantations on our way to Sehwan Sharif...

fields and fields glowing yellowly in the soft sunshine....

The pretty flowers needed a closer look...

I wonder what they use for sarson ka saag......flowers.....?

...or leaves..?

Of course it must be the leaves. Who’d eat such pretty flowers?

I'm surprised I didn't even THINK of munching on some! Just to see if they taste like mustard.

  1. Sehwan? When? Why? I remember this railway track. Did you stop by at Ranikot?

    • I’m afraid the person who insists on driving us to far flung places has no clue about the geography OR history of Sindh 😛
      Thought of you yesterday, and how much fun it would be to go on photo expeditions with you 🙂

  4. Eeee, I do think those are exactly what I bought at the farmers’ market and put on my salad! The plant grows so well here that it’s considered invasive. But the flowers have a delicious flavor… I put some on grilled cheese toast too and liked it that way as well. 🙂 How cool to see your photos!
