Living in Rajasthan one can miss having pretty flowers around you considering the water shortage and lack of space for gardens in the cities and the amount of work required for cultivating flowers for a short span of time. That is why the recent Guldaudi Show held in the Rajasthan University nursery was such a success, I suppose. After the show was over the chrysanthemum plants in full bloom were sold to the public. Instant gratification so to speak.
There are so few public places where you can see various species of flowers in full bloom. One solution is to buy some flower plants subject to the various constraints, under which we are all forced to live, from the local nursery for whatever garden space one has.
These are some of the nurseries of Jaipur.

Amaltas-Cassia fistula in full bloom in Jaipur
It is May and it is hot.All life is wilting in the heat.Except for the trees- they are lush green. And Amaltas and Gulmohar are blooming with abandon. In this day and age if you still want a reason to plant a tree you should take a drive in Jaipur in the afternoon. You will remember the yellow and the greens and the orange for a long time.You will notice bougainvillea is not shy in displaying its charms either.
You are all inspired to plant a sapling- but where in this concerte jungle.The best place would be to plant a sapling right outside your home- next to the road.Right under your eyes. You will be able water it and watch its growth on a day to day basis.If there is no possiblility of planting a tree outside your home then you can plant one in the colony garden. Remember the trees are not only for you but for the future generations yet to come.They will also provide shade, invite rains and produce Oxygen.The plants should be sown during the rainy season.The choice of sapling is up to you.You should choose a variety which require less water and looks after it self in this arid climate of Rajasthan.Trees like Ashok-Polyalthia longifolia, Khejari, Babool, Neem-Azadirachta indica,Amaltas-Cassia fistula, Gulmohar-Delonix regia etc.
