Notice the resemblance, so many Santa Claus 🙂
Strange but True, Shot/Bumped across this wild flower on Christmas Eve 2013, while roaming in a Mangrove Jungle, Was missing the festivities and then As if Nature wanted to wish us Merry Christmas! Wow!
May be I wanted to see Santa Claus and was noticing in them ,but hey it has some resemblance ..right? Why not name this as a Santa Flower! not sure if there is any?
The plant belongs to the genus Tamarix, which has 40-50 flowering species ,found mainly in dry parts of Eurasia & Africa, In kutch this is locally known as “LAI”
