Sisodia Raani Ka Baagh,Jaipur,Rajasthan,India.
No two ways about it Jaipur is in the middle of the monsoon. Though the rains are taking there own sweet time to come as and when they see fit. A couple of days of rain and the rain lily is in full bloom. Pink, yellow, white, big or small the rain lily leads the riot of color which is going to follow. The Aravali mountain range, guarding Jaipur for all these centuries, has a solid cover of green, which is going to last till after the monsoon has left Jaipur. The people of Jaipur & the tourists are thronging the three Forts, Jaigarh, Nahargarh & Amber, during and after the showers. During the summers the people were eating to live, now they are living to eat, choorma-dal-baati & other rajasthani delicacies. No weekend goes by which does not see a ‘Goth’ in a picturesque locations surrounding Jaipur. The plant nurseries of Jaipur are chock- a- block full of various plants in anticipation of the huge demand by public. The people usually plant trees during monsoons as they take root relatively easily. Also, others would like to replace the plants which did not survive the harsh summers.
So if you were thinking of going on a picnic, planting a rose garden or visiting folks in Jaipur, then now is the time!

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.
