Azaleas are still blooming. This one has proved to be particularly vigourous, just see the fresh growth. I am going to plant them in ground in a couple of days under the shade of a tree.

Cyclamen are no more blooming. But if a bush is to look like this, I don't care if it doesn't bloom. So artistic....

Today I saw this plant at faisal nursery pishawar mor. He was selling the pkant@3000. So expensive. I wonder can it survive in Islamabad in hot summers. And as the pkant is so expensive, can it be tried at home?
