I couldn’t make it to Independence day flower show at Lalbagh this year. So, what? here is a set of pics from my own garden :). Along with that, here comes a puzzle for you all. Name the plant if you can with greenish spherical budding flowers on top of tentacles like structures captured below. Gardening is certainly teaching me so many things – the result of effort takes patience and nurturing. At the same time, it teaches science and responsibility too! I am thoroughly enjoying the artistic natural colors and shape of each flower. I have included a pic with few early tomatoes too, watch out this space for the changing colors in those tomatoes as they ripen :). By the way, a month old brinjal plants are getting more greener with large leaves… more pics of that to come here in near future as well!
