Pastels for Summer


Tiny zinnia seedlings have gone into flower beds, but may never live to grow and bloom, as caterpillar-s are eating them up. The shrubs around the garden are putting out flowers now, and little dots of colour are appearing in new places every day!
When the heat builds up, and the days are humid, these are the coolers that soothe tired eyes and lift our spirits!

Hydrange-as



Wisteria in its corner

Thanks, Gardenia. Particularly the wisteria, a vision for tired eyes. It is beautiful beyond words.

Lovely flowers...a happy summer to you, I guess, surrounded by flowers. Wish it was the same here too! Very nice pictures, anyway!

Thank you, Kamini, Thannk you, Lakshmi! The summer garden is enjoyable till August or so, when everything stops growing - except grass and weeds!
