Welcome to my ecological garden in the tropics. Hope you find peace and tranquility here.

This is the Rangoli design made in my school during the farewell of the Year XII students. It depicts time, hope and success. Water is an integral part of hope and success for a garden. Unfortunately, due to the continuing drought, we are starved of water here.
This calm jungle lilypond reflects the forest surrounding it. For me it is a symbol of hope.
Water saving and harvesting is done in many ways. I cover the flower beds with coconut fibre, dry banana leaves and jackfruit leaves to prevent rapid evaporation. It is very effective, but my gardener hates it. He says the garden looks shabby.
