October feel

Past month was quite unusual since monsoon extended till last of September ,which led to rise of post monsoon diseases which had detrimental effect on  health concern in the country ,mosquito borne diseases such as Malaria,dengue,and now Zika has affected badly health of in our region .
But now  as we are entering into weather which is going to be colder in near months we expect relief from these viral diseases .Its mid of October and fall in temperatures at night can  already be felt ,its time for starting planning about spring garden ,and starting for sowing of winter vegetables and flowering annuals.
Meanwhile some new additions such as Dwarf Poinciana have given out their fresh first blooms 


                                         Pride of Barbados/Peacock flower/Dwarf  Poinciana

It was a surprise bloom but rewarding too 

It comes in another color also that is reddish yellow although pure yellow blooms are not so common to find.                                                                                                                          

Another startling first time bloomers were the cypress vine flowers

Although they are grown as annual their leaves and flowers have  beauty that compliments each other amazingly                                                                                                                                  

Day blooming jasmine or cestrum diurnum 

Where night blooming jasmine wafts fragrance at night,day blooming jasmine flowers have strong fragrance in day time.                                                                                                                

Plumeria and Zinnia are giving out blooms with drop at night temperatures

Although these are last blooms of Zinnia since they wont survive with the advent of winter nights

Morning glory blooms are recurrent month after month and  still going healthy blooms

Hibiscus are back after rains

Spider lily blooms are pleasant after September rains 

Chameli or jasmine blooms are refreshing nights with their fragrance

Four o' clock are in full glory

And one unusual inflorescence of Pearl Millet are beautiful 

October month comes with drop in temperature which gives garden revival after summer and monsoon ,Its undoubtedly best season for garden lovers in our region.
