The 'excess' rain is welcome!

It's been raining every single day from the beginning of August right up now to the start of September 2013 here in Bangalore. The rain has made the garden perk up and it has never looked so good before. Take a look at the Anthuriums. They bloom once in a while to keep us happy, but this year they all are in bloom together and have grown gigantic leaves as well.
This strange and variegated spiky sort of fern we brought from Hoskote. Took a tiny plant which has now grown into a massive bunch as you can see. There are plans afoot to make them into at least 20 gifts to give people over the coming Christmas season.
That is the gifts given to me by KP Shetty from his gorgeous Wild Wood Spa in Kundapur. The leaves are in a beautiful shade of hushed red and make such a wonderful contrast to the wandering Jew which seems to over run the entrance to the house.
And then the strangely coloured Elephant eared Cladium which is thriving in a pot full of home made wet waste compost. If everyone could see the way the garden is thriving in the rain, aided by the compost made from our own kitchen waste I am sure none of us would chuck any more kitchen waste on the road.
