While I am expecting a number of projects from many of you as the spring arrives, let me make hay while the sun shines. A few days back there was a heavy shower with hail stones in some part of the city. This is common after a couple of very hot days. Sometimes the stones are big enough to compel you to take shelter if you are in the open. It uproots many of the big trees and destroys delicate plants if the hail storm is strong. At my place it was mild and no harm was done to any of my plants. This condition is however very favorable for the Rain Lily to blossom and I got a beautiful bloom of my pink lilies in my oval container. A few days prior to that one of my roses bloomed with two red flowers and a new variety of hibiscus gave its first appearance. Scorching of the rose petals shows how hot the days were. I hope you will like this, coming from a humble terrace gardener. Yesterday was our New Year day and cuckoos have started singing their melodious songs reminding that the mango season is not too far. Wish you all a very prosperous spring through your vegetable and flower gardens.

Gorgeous flowers, Sharad. I especially like the lily. You are a wonderful gardener, Sharad. It is amazing what you can grow on your terrace. Today is a beautiful spring day and we are spending most of it outside.

OH! Sharad, the flowers are gorgeous. The lillies are so pretty. I wonder if they would grow here, even if they had to be brought in during the winter. The colour of the hibiscus is very beautiful. You are a talented gardener to be able to grow these lovely flowers. Thank you for sharing the pictures with us. They are a treat to our flower-starved eyes. 8^)
