Lady Sarad (Autumn) is on her way…

The plants are rejoicing with the sign of arrival of autumn soon and are ready to welcome the beautiful yellow sun with bouquets.

Plumbago auriculata (Wax Rose) and Pereskia bleo (Wax Rose)

Ruellie brittoniana (Desert Petunia)

Pseuderanthemum carruthersii (Purple False Eranthemum)

Their tiredness is gone with the departure of the whitish sun of winter.

Tabernaemontana divaricata 'Flore Pleno (Crape Jasmine Flore Pleno)

Baby leaves with pinkish fingers smile at him.

Aegle marmelos (Bilva)

Tecomaria capensis (Cape Honeysuckle)

Nyctanthes arbortristis (Pârijâta)

The newborns who were brought in by rain, birds, and animals have grown into toddlers, demanding a smile on my lips.

Unknown seedling

(Sweet Pumpkin)

Phyllanthus amarus (Carry Me Seed)

Wow! I love autumn, even before its arrival!

Everyone’s recovering…

Two weeks ago, while coming back from work late in the night, I was hit by a biker (who I doubt was drunk badly) and my poor scooterette was injured badly.
As if taking up my pains on to themselves, my plans too were hurt. I thought it was only the naughty squirrels that were eating up my buds, but there was more.

Mealy bugs found their way into my Plantville, doing the maximum damage they could on my hibiscuses mainly.

But by the time I found them damage was done and I had to act soon, which meant bye-bye to all buds and beautiful leaves.

Well, nature would do her part too, of course she did it for my plants’ good, but my seedlings couldn’t handle her harsh ways. They all bid me goodbye, except this poor little Pot Marigold. Arrival of Rainy season would mean it’s festival season and that’d mean I couldn’t care a lot for my plants. With the rains mellowing down, the greens started showing up everywhere.

And the unexpected Sweet Pumpkin Seedlings too... Yipeee...

Sorry for the tiny blog, but will come back soon… We’re all recovering…
