Summer blooms at 40c

This summer is quite uncertain compared to previous year in fact this year has been by far filled with uncertainty and ambiguity that will be staying for some time more in the latter part of this year.

While we are experiencing Hot summer days  in our region this time with unexpected western disturbances the usual  scorching heat waves are being subsided by the advent of showers periodically in every week.

It has helped a lot for flowers to appear in otherwise colorless summer garden.

Benefits of growing Organic fruits

I consider my self  fortunate to be able to get fresh harvest of many varieties of fruits every year in my garden.While growing your own fruits not only gives us  immense happiness and satisfaction it has numerable health benefits too .

                                                                     Mango harvest

These fresh harvest are much more tastier than store bought fruits and added advantage being they are free from use of pesticides and other harmful chemicals which are detrimental to health.

Plumeria Blooming season

Plumeria plants are very  relatable to summer season .Their hardy stems which remains dormant all winter for long  show up some life with burst of new leaves all over the plant after the arrival of spring  which are then preceded with blossoms that stays all long through the summer.


While Plumeria has a distinct pleasant fragrance but mostly it is the combination of colors and flower structure that makes it an attractive plant of  summer.                                                                              

                                                     Pink Plumeria or Plumeria rubra

                                                 A close up shot of White Plumeria

The above two varieties are not that fragrant in fact have minute fragrance when compared to empowering fragrance of this Common plumeria                                                                            

                                            Common white plumeria                                                  


                                                       Common White plumeria flower                                                            

Plumeria is quite drought tolerant plant when planted in ground but requires a little bit care when grown in a pot .It likes to be  fed with organic manure once in a while for brilliant blooms.
