Summer glory in the garden

Scorching Heat,Dryness in the garden,but thanks to the drizzle that was brought by the weather disturbance towards western region of  the country that dampened the earth which was otherwise smoldering instead.Summer heat gets over the plants ,infact every flora and fauna is adversely effected with summer heat and dryness.But there are somehow plants which brave the heat and bloom in this weather.

Planter beauty

Garden is always resplendent with its flora and green belt of plants which is constantly removed and added with upcoming season ,Pots and planters definitely add a beautiful sight to behold in absence of blooms and retain it's charm in absence of greenery.The beauty of any plant increase manifolds when it compliments the pot in which it is planted.

I didn't realized what illusion colors can have on your eyes these planters were deteriorating for that they bared  a lot so a stroke of painting brush here and there and see what magic is created






















There is another level of satisfaction in the below my own  handmade cement pots

A visitor in the balcony

Balcony garden is that place which is close to your access and activities taking place over there are much more chilling to observe .I have small balcony adjacent to my room which is filled with greenery that attracts beings .

It was yesterday at noon time that I observe A Red Vented Bulbul in the balcony


                                                             



It seated itself on a planter and chewed some of the leaves of my purslane plant from it and then faced towards myself it seemed like it was in search for water                                                    



After not able able to satiate its thirst it looked for water here ad there and flew away.











I realized we can help them satiate there quench of thirst by making small effort of keeping water filled container at anywhere outside our home to help them survive the scorching summer, and also if possible some food in form grain available for hunger.

Magical encounter with spring


Its time when sun is up with scorching heat and heatwaves will start in near by time.Spring annuals are at last blooming stage and most of them have withered off.

Here its time to enjoy the last burst of colors in garden before the temperature touches 40 degree celsius.

                                                  GAZANIA

Most hardy annuals that survive serious drought conditions and can be saved for next year
                                                       




Everlasting or Helichrysum

One of the late spring annual but worthy the wait.


Amaryllis Lily



Springtime lover hippeastrum blooms with onset of spring

Hibiscus flowers rise up with advent of spring and gives  blooms till harsh summer heatwaves have not started                                                                                                                                          




Phlox will be missed till another spring




Whereas Summer can kill plants make them wither off,but there are some hardy plants that give color to the otherwise dry part of summer.                                                                            

Purslane



Spider lily







To my surprise my Asparagus fern bloomed first time thereby complimenting its attractive foliage



One of those heavy blossoms of Cherry tomatoes 




Nothing tastes better then home grown tomatoes that too from seeds.


There is a fruiting shrub known as Phalsa plant or Grewia asiatica which has some beautiful flowers with much more tastier tangy ,sweet berries

When we draw towards Fragrance of flower that one single flower that is enough to turn your head towards its fragrance and beauty 


We can grow marigold for most part of the year except the most harsh summertime
