It was early in the morning just around 7.45am. The sun had waken up, blinking and hiding behind houses. I was about to make a move to the office. Light is not enough to capture bitter gourds well, for the sleepy sun had not opened up its eyes fully. Lately, the office is going through its toughest phase, thus requiring me to get home late.I decided to capture the progress of bitter gourds at that very moment. It's now or never.
The plants had grown up and rest on top of the trellis. Flowers were emerging, some had developed baby fruits in its elemental stage. Some flowers are males, thus lacking the bulging stalks. It really warmed Kakdah's mood, to see plants maturing and ready to give birth. It is much quicker than anticipated.
