I’m spending most of my time with my sister and her children. It’s a blessing that the school summer break isn’t over yet and my nieces get to spend more time with their mom. Being there, the feeling that my brother-in-law might just walk through that door with a huge smile on his face, is still so strong…
Their front garden, especially in the Guwahati winters, was a place where we sat in the sun gorging on oranges or sipped tea with savouries. One corner of the garden has Mexican Oleander, Bottle Brush, the Coral Jasmine, and a gnarled guava tree. Birds love this area especially when the guavas ripened. Over the past few days, I’ve spent a great deal of time in the garden, especially when my little nephew was fast asleep in the afternoons.
Part of the front garden. It’s a mix of everything that does well under a hot sun with few shade plants thrown in for good measure. With a look that verges on the wild, the pollinators are happy enough. The first picture is of an Emigrant butterfly feeding on the Ixora.
