Forest days are over….now we move over to our city gardens. Our next walk is in Sagar   Upvan [akka B.P.T.Garden]  Sagar Upvan is a paradise in our concrete jungle. Once you enter it you do not feel you are in Mumbai!. And you will find Leea  coccinia and Bauhinia monandra only in BPT. No   where else in Mumbai & they are flowering at the moment. So you are all invited to take a tree  appreciation walk on 16th October to experience this paradise.
