  2. Yes the flowers look so beautiful and fresh, despite the heat.
    I think we Bangaloreans are too pampered, even if it is a little hot we make faces, for we always want our Bangalore to have a pleasant weather all the time, and our plants too have caught the disease from us, for it has to only become just a little hot,they will have such withered look, the whole garden will look like a desert, and no amount of watering will yield result.( water is precious too) It would take the rain to bring back the color and beauty in the plants.
    I think you people should be grateful to have so much greenery, it is indeed a gift of God.
