There is also a folk lore or belief heard since ages that this raat ki raani attracts snakes, maybe because of its fragrance there may be a host of bees and birds near it! some people also mention growing the Din Ka Raja plant Cestrum Diurnum near it to ward off this belief , well till now not experienced , and I doubt all these beliefs, with so many fragrances around champa, jasmine, jai juhi, mogra, tube roses and the many colourful fragrant roses growing on our terrace, I guess I have a strong attraction to these fragrant flowering plants.I believe the angels nature spirits may be happily dancing at night enjoying the heavenly fragrances around our terrace.Welcoming healing spirits to our home my planting and gardening an ode to nature and a blessing I have got with a green thumb.
As for the pet alexandrines, pigeons, mynas and sparrows and the dotted sparrows and the white pair of doves (one is missing since two days) living nearby the terrace wonder if really a snake would be welcomed , will surely update!
