Great information, while travelling by Trains an On Board magazine by Indian Railways, from India's Top Publishing House,  Maxposure . Nostalgic and happy fond memories and yes I still prefer going by trains , especially our beautiful mountainous regions like Ratnagiri, Sikkim, Ooty and Himanchal Pradesh, the view is Breathtakingly Awesum!
Meanwhile with rains in my little space under the sun, the view and environment is Awesum! The obsession with growing the Brahma Kamal, Saussurea obvallata, plant still continues, the old plants are still quiet with just about little growth even after years, and many we have lost so have decided to keep them on window sill, so added a few on Friendship Day! There is actually no space remaining, but Welcome to the family!



 Meanwhile there are many half eaten leaves, especially bushy Aboli plants, Crossandra Infundibuliformis and the lilly huge rectangular leaves, and found the culprits that gorge on these, huge caterpillars, the size of this shows how big the butterfly is. Last year we had  two huge ones where I screamed, more than the size of fore finger!  and screamed !!!! with glittering shiny hair prussian blue and tips were orange dots!  No doubt the butterfly coming out is very large sized and Awesum contrasts of black, orange and white!
 Roses are the main soul of my garden, we have all year round blooms,
