34th Tree Appreciation Walk in Heritage Garden of Hiranandani Gardens, Powai on 6th Jan,2013:

As the Sun moves from Dakhshinayan (Tropics of Capricorn) to Uttarayan (Tropics of Cancer)…… It is said as the ‘holy phase of transition’………and while all of us prepare to celebrate Makkar Sankrant, Pongal, Lodi, festivals respectively..….we too decided to move away (for time being),from the forest trails of SGNP and enter the beautiful gardens of Mumbai……. Moreover, the fruiting of Rudraksh tree compelled us to take the Tree Appreciation Walk in Heritage Garden in Powai and share the pleasure with all of you……Heritage Garden also houses large number of Palms…….many of them are flowering & fruiting……Flowers of Muchkund (Pterospermum suberifolium) and Rajanigandha (Polianthes tuberosa) have competition in their whiteness……We invite all of you to have, a Tree Appreciation Walk in the Heritage Garden on 6thJan,13 with us……
