How Green is my valley

We are almost into September and the landscape here is replete with an abundance of Green. A pleasant sight, thanks to the wonderful rainy season we had, though it does make keeping the garden organized a heavy job. In India Monsoons have always been very important determinant of crop production and many a political fortunes have been made and destroyed depending on the quantum of monsoon rains. Despite the advancement and the heavy talk of maintaining a 8% growth rate, we are a primarily agrarian economy. All the scientific advancements haven't been able to make weather prediction 100% accurate, it remains an imperfect and largely unreliable science; and so a good rainy season is always a pleasant surprise...a reason to rejoice. The plants and the garden in general seem to be echoing the general mood; beautifully bejeweled with tiny droplets, gleaming in the crystal clear post rainfall Sun.

The butterflies seem to be making the most of the sunshine in one of the photos! Your garden looks lovely. I know how the garden becomes a wilderness in the rain:(

Julie said...

Hello!!! Is your daughter back in school yet? My grandson started back this week! The summer sure flew by! Your rainy season looks devine! I can almost feel the plants rejoicing as they drink up the moisture when it happens here! Thanks for showing some of your really pretty succulents!

Tira said...

Very green and lovely! We have also been getting some rains so i can't wait to get back home to check out how my plants have been doing.

Green thumb said...

College Gardener - Thanks! The credit goes to monsoons though.

Marisa - Wishing you a good season ahead. I was checking the year round weather in your city, and, Oh my, what a beautiful weather you have! Enjoy your heavenly Haven.

Lotusleaf - Dear Padma, thank you so much for the comment. Glad you noticed the butterfly.

Julie - Hi Julie! Oh yes, the princess is back to work. Time surely flies when you are in the company of children. The plants are happy and their happiness is very contagious - everything seems to be smiling with them.

Nicole - Thanks for the visit, dear Nicole. I hope you are greeted by some really beautifully grown plants on your return back.

With the rains come work and beauty. One cannot have beauty without work. Last year we were in a drought this year the rains have come. My dad was a meteorologist and my husband joked that this was one job that people are paid to be wrong.

I am a doctor too and have recently got into gardening. And i absolutely adore lillies... If you could tell me where in SaharanPur or Doon or anywhere in North do you get the bulbs/plants from, i would be off to a good start. I have done my MBBS from HIMS and Now live in Delhi... Hoping for a reply soon.

A large garden is often referred to as being a park, and will often be a tourist attraction. In a large facility a number of workers will be responsible for the maintenance of the garden, and are called gardeners. Gardening falls under three primary categories, and these are outdoor gardening, indoor gardening, and water gardening.

Economy tarps are the best to use because they are cost-effective, entirely waterproof, and simple to use. Economy Tarpaulins are constructed of strong low-density polyethylene laminated on both sides with high-density polyethylene and have metal eyelets at metre intervals in reinforced hems. These sheets are perfect for situations where they are required to be made of heavy-duty fabrics that will not tear when stretched. They are lightweight and can be used to provide protection for a variety of cargo products that need to be protected from the elements. This high-quality tarp is inexpensive, so everyone can acquire it
