Garden Affair : Heatwaves hit the city

 Summer is at its peak the unbearable hot weather is making it grueling to step out in the outdoors. The Garden is also not spared from scorching Summer heat and it is becoming tedious to protect plants from this harsh weather. 

                                         Plants after heat waves 




The weather forecast for upcoming week is threatening as there is no respite expected  from heat wave  in coming days. There are considerations that I had always applied in harsh summer days to protect plants from any harm from heat wave which are mulching plants, watering sufficiently, creating moisture environment by keeping plants near water plants or artificial water bodies.                                                               

It s surprising to see in spite of  harsh weather Jasmine  varieties are coming up with fresh blooms 
                                                              

                                                            
       It is the time for link up party Garden Affair where we can share posts related to Gardening, Nature and birds. The link up party will remain open for a week starting from Sunday.
