Tomorrow we will begin the first phase of planting shrubs chosen specially for their ability to attract butterflies and small birds. We intend to plant Vitex Negundo along the fence on the Brigade Millennium-Arekere Road. We are planting Vitex to also block out the traffic noise on this busy road! :-)
One of our regular volunteer gardeners, Vinay, has kindly agreed to coordinate the planting which will begin at 7 a.m. sharp. The pits are already dug and ready to receive the plants. FYI, only 57 saplings are to be planted tomorrow.
Give Vinay a helping hand and use the opportunity to see the fresh water in the lake! You may also spot the Spot-billed Ducks and Pied Wagtail in the photos taken yesterday evening by Nirupama Sriram.
