Garden in Rains Drooping Roses Close up of Kamini flower cuttings Murraya Paniculata Changing Colours of Money Plant Lost Goldie Fish

Allamanda flowers in rain
 I LOVE RAINS! my little space looks green, fresh and fully loaded with multi colour blooms! Drooping roses, drooping Allamanda flowering stems and Awesum fragrant Kamini bush fully loaded! While the rains bring out some respite in the gardener , ME, I get a break from the daily care and watering of plants, there are also some losses, but waiting to see how the season progresses.
A strange behavior, the Allamanda and the Fragrant jasmine, Juhi climbers are giving out tall lanky stems and at the tip of ends have bunches of blooms. No, I cant trim them and they are as if connecting ends of my terrace with lovely blooms!Fragrances are at top, with so many happy roses, heavy loaded plants but a bit sad as the roses with weight of heavy rain water are drooping but they look so happy and beautiful! The photographer in me gets great shots of flowers in rains!Actually every morning I am welcomed with some great attractive flowers and the mobile has given me great flexibility to capture, and quite some time goes in speaking to them, viewing the,m, smelling  the heavenly fragrances and clicking creative captures, all from my little space under the sun!.

Money plant epipremnum aureum, devil's ivy, Soloman Islands Ivy, pothos. Chlorophyll, is what we have studied in Botany, well this may be the result of changing colour in Pothos. While the money plant is quite happy and healthy some leaves are a shaded yellowish green among the vibrant greens. Maybe the amount of sunlight is reduced in rains as also some parts are covered with heavy money plant large leaves so the new ones coming are shaded.
No this is not a disease or the money plant is not sick, as in sickness the plants turn absolutely yellow , complete light yellow and drop. Its a beautiful artistic sight , money plant in shades of green!

 its really sad and emotional loss, my friend for many years, lost count, Goldie Gold fish, we lost her, Always happily swimming never was there any trouble,she would come so happily when I passed from near the fish tank, was so healthy but she got Swim Bladder disease, read from Google, it happens when fishes swallow air along with food, and their stomach bloats , they find difficulty in swimming straight and swim  upturned, that is bottom above. Prayed..prayed , gave medicines...stopped food, separated her, but finally understood, her higher again put her back in her home,  but couldn't save her....., struggle went for more than three weeks but she never showed any signs of sickness except for the unusual swimming posture...RIP Goldie fish... Lies peacefully in a plant container, buried with due respect and love. All my pets , budgie love birds and fishes lie in my garden soil, except for pigeons as they are larger in is important as pets give us so much love we must give them a respectful ending.In heaven will she be swimming happily! and yes hope she blossoms as a beautiful Brahma Kamal bloom!
