Whenever we visit a garden the first thing children notice are swings see saw and slides! elders search for good seating chairs whereas youngsters love the nature walks surrounded by colorful flowers and greenery. For all those who have big gardens choosing the right garden furniture and play ground equipment becomes a difficult task.
If you want to install childrens play area swings slides see saws go in for good material and design. The one that may bear the nature , sunlight , rains, daily watering and still go on for years.

Image
Kevda plants are very famous since ages and the fragrance of flowers is out of this world. As with kewra essence used in many food dishes, we know kevda is a household name. Kewra flowers are very fragrant and with this hope have planted the kevda plant in container in our garden. More than six years have passed and the plant has grown well but there are no blooms.

I have read that kevda plants do not bloom in containers, or they bloom after many many years.Seen in  housing complexes landscapes where the kevda plant has grown majestically huge nearly three four to five feet tall. Wonder when the flowering stem comes up.
