Mauled by monkeys!

Recently, one morning when I woke up and went outside on my balcony, I was dismayed to find that the beautiful Plumeria tree, outside the boundary of my house had been badly damaged by monkeys. They had broken off many of the branches and there were leaves and branches strewn all over. The tree looks very sad and bare now. I hope it recovers soon.

Where have all the flowers gone?

My garden is looking pretty colorless these days. The temperature is hovering around 44-45 degrees celsius and the heat is unbearable. And in case you are wondering, this was a rare day when it wasn't sunny because there was a dusty haze all over the city.
The only flowers blooming are the Portulacas on my balcony. And though the pots are too big for the planters, I decided I didn't mind them standing on them rather than in them.

And while we are on the subject of planters, these were made from wooden pallets, by a carpenter working at my home. And I quite like the way they have turned out though they have yet to be painted/polished. And that's because I'm basically not sure what to do! Any advice on the same, is welcome.

Lilies on my balcony...

I just love Lilies. These Asiatic lilies were grown from bulbs which I planted in October. They were blooming in Feb-March.

Garden of Five Senses

Recently, I had the immense pleasure of visiting the garden festival at the garden of Five Senses in my city. The flowers were just too amazingly beautiful! The size of the Dahlias was truly unbelievable! One can't just help but marvel at the beauty in nature.

I think i'm more of a 'blogee' than a blogger! So i'm always lurking even if i'm not posting. However, my Dahlias have forced me out of my hibernation and I'm feeling extremely proud!
So here are a few pics..
