|Mogra leaves dropping as winter sets in|
Mogra suddenly seemed to have dropped most leaves and as the huge leaves, it has grown quiet healthy and wide,(for all those who have missed my garden rants over the years-this plant was sick when we bought it, ten years back, and while anyone else would have thrown it as dead, I removed each of the red mites using a stick from its roots , manually, and since then this plant has given me very big sized abundant mogra blooms , twice or thrice every year ) so one of my favourites,.
As winter sets in people get scared that their plants are dying, with leaf dropping fast and sometimes the mogra plant may also go barren. The reason is winter sets in and the plants go in hibernation. As most of us think the plant is sick and add more water, this is one action that must be avoided. More watering is harmful during winter and is easy for pests and fungus to attack roots and plant stems.

The super moon we saw on the previous day was quite large, majestic and huge.Against the black sky its presence was seen as I looked from my little space under the sun.
Full moon times, growing phase of moon, are considered auspicious in feng shuii and with healers as it is the maximum white light energy. Another aspect of super moon, full moon is it is strongest feminine energy and can benefit women, females if they with pure heart and sincere intentions, desire, wish at such times.
Mogra plants drop leaves and may seem barren but their roots are intact. keep the acre like everyday for the winter season and never skip watering. Avoid trimming plants during winter, and within few days they will pick up growth with fresh lime green tiny leaves coming up. It is a process of purification, change, and rest for the plants as soon now they will give flowers. Mogra plants are one of the best fragrant flowering plants, we have different varieties of fragrant jasmines, I love their heavenly fragrance!
Butterflies are symbols of hope, change and angel support, they bring messages from our guides and be with us.
