Summers On

Summer's On

It's mid May, and here, in this part of the world, we have started experiencing scorching heat. Plants and their blooms have gone into hiding. At the onset of summers, I got some summer plant seeds including the Tom Thumb variety of Balsam, Celosia Plumosa, Vinca and Zinnia. I did sow Zinnia seeds, but, couldn't gather the courage to sow the remaining seeds as summers had finally set in, and it appeared to me that it won't be possible for a majority of the seedlings to survive in the climatic conditions we are experiencing here.

I did sow the Zinnia seeds and the plants rapidly grew and developed. My zinnia plants are blooming now. Fortunately enough, the packet of seeds I bought had seeds of mixed zinnia variety, and fairly enough three of my zinnia plants that have bloomed bore flowers of different colours and shapes. Here are some of my Zinnia blooms.

Now a days, a lot of moss roses and my hibiscus plant are blooming profusely. I will post some images from these plants soon. Till then, keep visiting and HAPPY GARDENING.
