I am a natural gardener living in South India.The exuberant tropical garden that has grown around me is completely organic and critter- friendly.Different frogs, birds, butterflies and other winged creatures live in my garden or visit it, including some of the creeping kind. All are welcome except the four legged kind. I love to travel and to learn new things.
