Recently, one morning when I woke up and went outside on my balcony, I was dismayed to find that the beautiful Plumeria tree, outside the boundary of my house had been badly damaged by monkeys. They had broken off many of the branches and there were leaves and branches strewn all over. The tree looks very sad and bare now. I hope it recovers soon.

My garden is looking pretty colorless these days. The temperature is hovering around 44-45 degrees celsius and the heat is unbearable. And in case you are wondering, this was a rare day when it wasn't sunny because there was a dusty haze all over the city.
The only flowers blooming are the Portulacas on my balcony. And though the pots are too big for the planters, I decided I didn't mind them standing on them rather than in them.
And while we are on the subject of planters, these were made from wooden pallets, by a carpenter working at my home. And I quite like the way they have turned out though they have yet to be painted/polished. And that's because I'm basically not sure what to do! Any advice on the same, is welcome.
