Flowers in the Monsoon

Happy Independence Day to my Indian Gardener fellows !!

Monsoon is the awaited season throughout the year since it brings relief from hot dry days with heavy spell of  rains.With temperature coming down flowers make a come back in the garden.

 Mirabilis Jalpa better known as Four o' Clock had made there first appearance  in my garden


They truly justify by their name by blooming after four o ' clock in the evening . Vibrant colors are scene to adorn .                                                                                                                                   

To my surprise ,Lycoris Lily popular as Red spider lily too made its debut in my garden

 They come in cluster of flowers adjoining each other forming a crown shape        


They are long time bloomers for a week or even more,Filaments of this lily are larger than flower itself ,that look attractive when it collects rain drops                                                                    

Gardenias are the aromatic huge white flowers that emit fragrance to the passerby                            

 They are always star attraction when their bloom brings life to the garden                             

And the flowers that make their comeback after halt in summer                                                            
Zinnias love Rain ,plants survive the dread of summer too but blooms when temperature falls

Yellow Water lily has left dormancy and came out with heavy rain                             

I have noticed  the flowers are getting larger with each passing year                                                            


Salvia and Carnation somehow survived the arid hot days to bloom in the monsoon

Happy Gardening to my worldwide Gardening friends ,Take a look at Maydreams Garden to see whats blooming in the garden around the world.                                                                                    



  1. What a wonderful surprise getting volunteer Lycoris in your garden! Congratulations on having survived the hot and dry summer, and the relief of rain! We've been lucky in the Pacific NW so far this summer, but are headed for a heatwave this week. I brace myself... that oppressive heat is SO not my thing!

  2. Beautiful photo's and colours.... I don't know monsoon by own experience ofcourse but i do believe that it influences bloom and growth

    Have a nice ABC-W-day / – week
