Hearty Harvest

It's been raining from last two days the weather is pleasant now.I had been trying growing veggies from some time but the summer heat does'nt make me do so.
Now the Summer has gone we are almost end to our monsoon season too.And Garden is bearing some harvest this season ...

  Okra or Lady Finger  plants had been giving harvest from last four months continuously ... 

First time tried is the Cowpea beans we love it even the ripened seeds are cooked in form of lentil 

It grows in vine form and gives plenty of harvest                                                                       

And some chilli to add flavour in food                                                                                            

My old fellow double colored brinjal to give company to other veggies                                            


Have a great week ...Linked to  Abc Wednesday

Favorite Fragrance is Back

They are back almost after a year and half ..I guess the stagnant hot weather make them do so .
I am  always been a great admirer of Lilies, but My heart goes gaga when I see Spider lily blooming and there Fragrant makes me Feel  to be  in the seventh Heaven .
Spider lilies are some of those hardy bulbous plants that require minimal care and most importantly long restive hot period to come into blooming stage .


Where there spidery blooms looks Fantastic there bud instantly grabs attention..                                       

They are popular in our region for offering to God specially Lord Shiva ,recently the sacred Hindu month of  Saavan  has passed where we worship Lord shiva and it's said he is happy by the offering of these lilies .

Zephyr lily flourishes with rain

The monsoon has been delaying endlessly with temperature rising slowly again.Thereof,sowing season is also being delayed ,still we are receiving some pre monsoon showers mainly at late night hours .
       Last week there was this sudden rainfall at late night hours that made my Zephyr lily to move out of it's shell and flourish so that portraying a glimpse of those heavy Rainy days when they bloom in profusion .

The morning just after the Rainfall they emerged like that 


Till  evening the scenario was like this

I hope there will be rain till the end of the week ,otherwise the atmosphere would heat up again...plants definitely don't like that...so Am I.
