The Himalayan brown bear is also known as “The Himalayan Red Bear”, distribution from northern Afghanistan, northern Pakistan, northern India, west China, Nepal, and have become extinct in Bhutan. The male brown bear ranges from 5ft - 7t 3in long while female is little smaller ranges from 4 ft 6 in - 6 ft. Thus, it is largest mammal in Asian region, as these bears are omnivorous and hibernate in a den during winter. A large brown bear has thick fur which is most often sandy or reddish-brown in colour. The head is large and the body heavy and the legs stocky. The Himalayan brown bear is found in three major mountain ranges, Hindu Kush, Karakoram and the Western Himalaya, and four inter-mountain highlands. Himalayan brown bears seem to be arguably the least arboreal of all the bear subspecies. The average wild life of brown bear is 20 to 30 years.
Though current in a number of protected areas, they’re becoming progressively rare because of loss of suitable habitat and hunting by humans, and have become "critically endangered." Himalayan brown bears exhibit sexual dimorphism and they are the largest animals in the Himalayas and are habitually sandy or reddish-brown in color. The brown bears include habitats of high altitude open valleys and pastures. During the summer months the bears move up as high as the snow-line at around 5,500 metres and then descend into the valleys in the autumn. The Himalayan brown bear consists of a single clade that is the sister group to all other brown bears and polar bears. Overall, the brown bear is one of the most widespread bear species in the world, and one of the most ancient brown bear lineages. It’s a very large animal, believed by some that the bear’s ability to walk upright probably gave rise to the legend of the Yeti or “Abominable Snowman.” Deosai National Park in Pakistan has the largest population of Himalayan brown bears in the region; it is also one of the few places where their habitat is protected.
Moreover, Himalayan brown bears are omnivores and will eat grasses, roots and other plants as well as insects and small mammals; they also like fruits and berries. They will also prey on large mammals, including sheep and goats. Thus, both genders will eat before sunrise and later during the afternoon. The Himalayan brown bear is a critically endangered species in some of its range with a population of only 150-200 in Pakistan. The populations in Pakistan are slow reproducing, small, and declining because of habitat loss, fragmentation, poaching, and bear-baiting. Moreover Himalayan brown bears are diurnal and, except during mating and for mothers with cubs, are solitary. Mating takes place during May and June with cubs being born in the winter den in December and January. The bears go into hibernation in a cave or dug-out den around October, emerging in April or May.

The Lahore Fort (Punjabi and Urdu: شاہی قلعہ: Shahi Qila, or "Royal Fort"), is a citadel in the city of Lahore, Pakistan.The fortress is located at the northern end of Lahore's Walled City, and spreads over an area greater than 20 hectares. It contains 21 notable monuments, some of which date to the era of Emperor Akbar. The Lahore Fort is notable for having been almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th century, when the Mughal Empire was at the height of its splendour and opulence.
Though the site of the Lahore Fort has been inhabited for millennia, the first record of a fortified structure at the site was in regard to an 11th-century mud-brick fort. The foundations of the modern Lahore Fort date to 1566 during the reign of Emperor Akbar, who bestowed the fort with a syncretic architectural style that featured both Islamic and Hindu motifs. Additions from the Shah Jahan period are characterized by luxurious marble with inlaid Persian floral designs, while the fort's grand and iconic Alamgiri Gate was constructed by the last of the great Mughal Emperors, Aurangzeb, and faces the renowned Badshahi Mosque.
After the fall of the Mughal Empire, the Lahore Fort was used as the residence of Ranjit Singh, founder of the Sikh Empire. The fort then passed to British colonialists after they annexed Punjab following their victory over the Sikhs at the Battle of Gujrat in February 1849. In 1981, the fort was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its "outstanding repertoire" of Mughal monuments dating from the era when the empire was at its artistic and aesthetic zenith.
The Shalimar Gardens (Punjabi, Urdu: شالیمار باغ), sometimes spelled Shalamar Gardens, is a Mughal garden complex located in Lahore, capital of the Pakistani province of Punjab. Construction of the gardens began in 1637 C.E. during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan, and was completed in 1641. The Shalimar Gardens were laid out as a Persian paradise garden. The gardens measure 658 metres by 258 metres, and cover an area of 16 hectares east of Lahore's Walled City. The gardens are enclosed by a brick wall that is famous for its intricate fretwork. In 1981 the Shalimar Gardens were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as they embody Mughal garden design at the apogee of its development. The gardens date from the period when the Mughal Empire was at its artistic and aesthetic zenith.

Larches look for the entire world like evergreen trees. Larches are conifers in the genus Larix, in the family Pinaceae. Larch is also called Larix, is a long waving twigs have tufts of small needles; they even have cones. But come fall those needles turn yellow and fall off just like the leaves of any deciduous tree. And the wood is more like that of deciduous hardwood trees than the softer wooded evergreens. Larches are among the dominant plants in the boreal forests of Siberia and Canada. Although they are conifers, larches are deciduous trees that lose their needles in the autumn.
Larches are beautiful in the wild; a stand of them will turn a hillside a bright pale green in early spring when the needles start to grow, and bright yellow in fall. But have also lived with a larch on the lawn, as a specimen tree, and found it a handsome unusual accent. The Native American larch “Larix laricina” also called “eastern larch” and “tamarack” grows as tall as 90 feet in an open pyramid. Larches are among the few deciduous conifers, which are mostly evergreen. Other deciduous conifers include the golden larch Pseudolarix amabilis, the dawn redwood Metasequoia glyptostroboides, the Chinese swamp cypress Glyptostrobus pensilis and the bald cypresses in the genus Taxodium.
It is fast growing and one of the hardies trees known. It will even live in Zone 1, regions of which are simply referred to as”the tamarack” because that’s about all threat grows there. European larch “L. deciduas” hardy to Zone 2, is taller and is perhaps best known for the variety L. d. “Pendula” whose climbs have gracefully drooping side branches. Moreover Japanese Larch “L. leptolepsis or L. kaempferi” hardy to zone 4, is also pendulous, with peeling bark. It grows very fast and is more resistant to canker than other larches. Source: Chrismaticplanet.com
Well, to grow Larch, you need a cool climate. They prefer a sunny location and deep fertile, rather acid soil that is moist but well drained. They are easy to transplant but are best planted balled and bur-lapped in fall or early spring. Larches rarely need pruning. Lower branches can be removed from head room of if they are week and straggly. The trees should have a central leader; if that is damaged replace with another branch as described in the listing for fir.

Eucalyptus deglupta is a tall tree, also famous as the rainbow eucalyptus, Mindanao gum, or rainbow gum. The most colorful tree on earth is found in an area that spans New Britain, New Guinea, Seram, Sulawesi and Mindanao, and is the only Eucalyptus species with a natural range that extends into the northern hemisphere. It thrives in tropical forests that get a lot of rain. This painted forest, Secret Marvels of the World says, is simply astonishing. The trees’ amazing hues come about thanks to sections of bark shedding at different times during the year. These trees may look like they have been painted on, but these colors are all natural. This unusual multi-colored streaks on its trunk comes from patches of outer bark that are shed annually at different times, showing the bright-green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones. Eucalyptus deglupta is the only Eucalyptus species found naturally in the Northern Hemisphere. Now, this tree is cultivated widely around the world, mainly for pulpwood used in making paper, and also for ornamental purposes.
Moreover beside of climate, rainbow eucalyptus growing conditions include full sun and moist soil. Once established, the tree grows three feet per season without supplemental fertilizer, though it needs regular watering when rainfall is inadequate. Therefore, the most prominent feature of a rainbow eucalyptus tree is its bark. The peeling process results in vertical streaks of red, orange, green, blue and gray. Though the tree’s color isn’t as intense outside its native range, rainbow eucalyptus bark color makes it one of the most astonishingly colorful trees you can grow. Rainbow eucalyptus is an enormous tree that is out of scale for most home landscapes. Moreover, make sure it can cause property damage as its raised roots break up sidewalks, damage foundations and raise small structures, such as sheds. The tree is better suited to open areas, like parks and fields, where it provides brilliant shade as well as fragrance and beauty.Source: Charismatic Planet

The grass tree is also known as “Xanthorrhoea glauca”, is a large plant in the genus Xanthorrhoea mainly widespread in eastern Australia. The tree has many branches and its trunk can grow in excess of 5 metres tall. The grass tree is sporadically seen in large communities in woodland on steep edges and sides of gorges, mainly in shallow rich basaltic soils and, at some sites in serpentine soils or sandstone. The grass tree is a slow growing plant, carefree and durable admired for its spherical form and fine texture and makes it a perfect garden specimen. The leaves are a grey or bluish glaucous green. The grass tree has two sub-species, which are recognized; subspecies angustifolia and glauca. The grass trees are highly fire-resistant and are among the first to resprout after wildfire as the living growth is buried within the old dead leaf bases. Many insects automatically attract due to its nectar rich flowers, and overlap of characters between the subspecies where their distribution abut.
Moreover, this plant has an exclusive structure, with a true stem of fibrous conducting tissue supported by a sheath of tightly packed old leaf bases glued by a reddish crystalline resin. Tall, rod-like flower spikes grow above the foliage then plentiful miniature; white flowers emerge from densely packed, brown bracts. Its trunk with age and won't be passed over by anyone with an appreciation for sculptural plants. The flower spikes habitually consume much of the plant energy store and may not recur for many years. This rare and iconic plant has been a part of Aboriginal history, colonial artworks and a recent day inspiration to landscape architects. This plant is highly tolerant of drought and heat, thrives in well drained, aerated soils that have a low nutrient content, making it an easy plant to include in any garden. This plant is rarely seen in cultivation due to its slow growth rate, naturally grow one to two centimeters a year, though it has been suggested that growth rates are greatly increased when grown by seed. The all Xanthorrhoea species are having sensitive roots, and in order to shrink the chance of death a sunny position should be selected and the soil should be well aerated for best results.
