Flora and fauna

The stray dogs of my locality are growing up at an alarming rate. Yesterday when I saw two of them following me for 1.5 seconds, I raised my voice and said ‘shoooo’ and they ran away! Either they know my scent that I belong to the house which feeds them or my voice fills terror in their hearts :mrgreen:

The rose plant buds quarterly. That too one lone, single rose. By the time it blooms fully and then withers away, it’s almost a fortnight. 15 days of pretty sight as soon as I open the main door.

Since a couple of days, a small, tiny sandy white cat has been visiting our home at odd hours. Especially when we are having dinner. It meows sitting from the window sill. Yesterday it might have caught the scent of fried fish, but day before yesterday, it was beans-kurma. Do cats like beans šŸ™„ šŸ™„ Or maybe it came to give me a glimpse šŸ˜€

Each flower of the ridge-gourd plant is under high scrutiny. The ants eat away the sweet pollens thus leaving no chance for us to relish the vegetable. So FIL is always on his toes, spraying his herbal medicine on the plant as soon it starts flowering. We have been able to save 3 flowers as of today.

Can you guess who makes the biggest noise when we are in our deepest slumbers? The heavily grunting pigs! I have no idea what they have to discuss right outside our bedroom and why they choose this place to convene regularly without fail. We won’t get a sight of them all day long but come midnight, they make their presence felt. Sigh.

Some new variety of pink flowers are blooming alongside the jasmine plants. The two make a beautiful couple. The pink ones do not give out any fragrance, but they have the jasmine’s scent hint lingering on them. The pentagon shaped petals sit perfectly on the photo frames in the prayer room.
