Dampened Garden in Disarray


I am feeling guilty, I have not posted anything new since days. I have a few drafts waiting for photographs, to complete the posts. It is a time for waiting and learning that patience is good for ones’s health.
One fine day, it was decided that our Terrace needed to be water proofed. We have been having ugly leaks in the roof, due to bad work done earlier. The heavy rain this year, hastened the process.

And who gets the brunt? The plants and me , of course. We had to shift them to the lower floor, where shade rules the day now. And I am sad😦 , to see that the plants are neglected, crowded, and wilting. Added to that, the weather is
un-cooperative. What is happening in TN, is having impact in this city too. For the past few days, it is dull, cold, and wet . I am checking the weather sites, every few hours, hoping for some sunshine.

Meanwhile, the plants have to cope with cement dust, cats playing havoc and my mismanagement.

“Nazar lag gaya ” is my consolation for the time being.

Hope to post cheerfully, soon.

As you guessed, I am a retired executive, looking for hobbies. Stumbled into gardening after reading blogs. Always wanted to use eco-friendly items in daily life. So, there was no heistation in deciding to put the vast terrace balcony to use for organic garden.
