Picture 1.
This is one of the several Hibiscus flowers I have on my garden. It is my passion to add more and more varieties of Hibiscus and so far I have eleven of them.

Picture 2.
This picture shows a picture of one pumpkin out of twelve I harvested on my terrace garden. It was a challenge to grow pumpkins on terrace and I am happy that it was successful.

Picture 3.
Picture of leaf and flower of Green Bean is another display of shape and color to make the plant so attractive

Picture 4.
Picture of Mustard flower brings forth the beauty of this plant.

Picture 5.
This is a picture of big beetle that accidently landed on my terrace garden. I wonder at such beautiful creatures and cause for their creation.

Picture 6.
I made this banana hanger out of pine as a decorative and useful piece on my dining table.

Yes, I was waiting to see if one of your pumpkins would drop from your terrace on to an unsuspecting pedestrian below – glad to hear that didnt’ happen. The Hibiscus is lovely.

Oh! I remember all these pics, Sharad. Good choice. I’ve enjoyed seeing them again.

With such success with your pumpkins, it’s no wonder you included pics of them. And the hibiscus is amazing. Love it…..beautiful plant and wonderful picture.

The banana stand is SO useful.

I love that Hibiscus. I started some from seed the other day. I hope some of them take. If so, I might have a few extra seeds for you Sharad.

(for the challenge tag, can you edit it and separate the challenge-11 from the 2011 so this will show up on our challenge list. Thanks.)

I do enjoy the gardening information and perspective you bring to GT, Sharad. So many of the plants, birds and insects you share with us are new to me. I appreciate the opportunity to learn from you and your photos reflect your interests so well. They all bring back great memories of projects you have shared with us over the year.
