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!

    No idea Mohan about the name of the plant. Is it vegetable or flower? If veggi- than I would have guessed musturd….fluke! :)

    I love home grown fresh veggi, these tamatoes look!

      It is still a month or two away for the actual colorful flowers to bloom and you seem to have caught them early. Nice to see vegetables also. Even I have no clue on what plant it is… waiting for answers :)

      • Mohan August 17, 2009, 12:30 pm

        I know.. you can still try. I won’t reveal this time so easily :)

    • Mohan August 17, 2009, 12:29 pm

      Yes! Just experimenting with few to start with.. it should help me in the long run when I get into actual farm sometime down the lane :). Sure, drop in on any of the sundays… I am still very naive at this, nevertheless will write on that soon.
