    Hi Sharada
    you have such beautiful collection of plants. I love the smell of sougandhika. i have it with me in hyderabad. but yours looks more healthier. the second pic isn't that Ceylon spinach? do you cook it. its full of nutrients.

    Nice flowers (esp/ sugathi)

    And is that spinach the one that we get in market in bunches to buy? I dint even know they grow in creepers, I thought they grew just like fenugreek/coriander plants in soil!

    Nice garden you have, Sharadau. The sougandhika looks like the lillies flowers.

    The Pasalai greens creeper is very ornamental, i have them too and I love the small bead cluster kind of fruits( or buds) it has.
