The obsessed gardener in me still continues to add up and squeeze some new ones but this poor little ficus plant got burnt in the sun while travelling. Hope it recovers soon.

 With hot summers we have to add water twice daily as the bird bath is of medium size, medical reasons do not permit to store large quantities of water, due to spread of disease by mosquitoes, here our bird bath hardly lasts for half a day, and fresh water is added for the visitors to take a dip and drink.I caught the early riser in this pic. Last week a pigeon had come with hair entangled in feet. The poor fellow could not walk and the more he tried the more the tangles got grip of the tiny pink feet. Recently during the kite festival another one had died as I was too late to help him out, even after cutting the soft thread, very sad that the pigeon had died, after a night, though some respite that it drank some water and took some bread crumbs, death is the same, the pigeon too struggled , we feel so helpless, and then the last breath...the birds are sent to soil as last rites, just like the fishes who die from the tank. 
Our pet white pigeon was saved as he got regular feeding on time and though the swollen feet part fell off the leg, it healed faster with care. and this time another pigeon, I was alert , quick and though this fellow flew away that day after feeding, which brought tears to my eyes as the feet blood circulation gets blocked and gangrene sets in as a result the pigeon dies with pain and hunger.
he came back for feeding and hiding under the garden pots, it is very tricky to trim the entangled threads and hair from their feet as they resist and keep pulling in opposite direction, I am so happy that God has given me this opportunity, the most happiest feeling, freeing his feet, when I set it free! Thank You!

Friendly visitors the pigeons coming for a dip and drink
I have observed that simple tips can helps to flower different types of mogra, Jasmine and Juhi plants faster and give out plenty of healthy large sized blooms,
1) Full Sunlight
2) Good firm soil to hold the plant as it becomes quite heavy
3) Watering regularly daily after winter , even twice in flowering times when there are buds. In case water is not sufficient the buds drop off.
4) Feeding just after winter is over as mostly these plants love to give out fragrant blooms in summers.
5) Trimming just after winter to remove dried shoots of stems and leaves and also to start the blooming process.
It is advisable to keep all types of mogra fragrant plants in one area so that watering and care can be done properly. Feedings are most important to get big sized healthy blooms, but do not encourage regular blooms in six months. I often trim most of the plant to let it conserve energy for flowering. Once a year we get lots of blooms and with each breeze and every drop of the fragrant flower the garden is covered with a sheet of heavenly white fragrances!
Thank You!
