In India, Neem tree has been a revered one through the ages. Granma used to tell us that Neem tree near the entrance of the house is very beneficial and that summers are made cooler by the sway of its branches 🙂
We dont live in an independent house and hence there was no scope to plant a Neem tree at our doorstep. However, a couple of years ago, the apartment association folks planted a couple of Neem saplings (with adequate protection) near the gates and that instantly reminded me of granma’s words! It has been a joy to see the plants grow and I’m surprised how tall they’ve become in one year!!
Here are a couple of pics that I took in the beginning of this year, while waiting with Ammu for her school bus to arrive. Love the play of the early morning sunlight…
This is my entry for the #ThursdayTreeLove blog hop hosted at Parul’s blog , on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. Do join in, and/or hop over for a feast of tree pics 🙂
