Snapshost from my Garden. Blog marathon Post 3.

If you have joined me just now, this is a series of a blog marathon that I am doing. the first post was about making a portrait and what goes into it.
The second asked "Are you in a drift mode?"

This is the third. I am sharing some snap shots from my garden. Gardening is something that gives me immense joy. It is indeed amazing to grow something so magnificent and watch it bloom. Such beauty in flowers! I can spend hours in my garden.

To grow any plant, you really need just good soil, a container, some manure and daily watering. Even if you live in a flat or an apartment, you can grow them in pots. They instantly transform the place and add magic to it. If you live in India, all you have to do is drive to the local nursery, get a few plants and then call your local 'maali' who will happily re-pot them for you. Make an arrangement with him to add manure and loosen the soil, once in fifteen days or so. All you will have to do is water the plants on a daily basis. Not too hard really, is it?

Here are pictures of my favourite blooms from my garden.

 This is a creeper that goes up my white picket fence. White and yellow. Tranquility!


 I really like this one too.

 And this :) There are about 10-12 of them right now in my garden.


 Pretty, isn't it?


And this one here seems to be telling me, "come on and dance and enjoy life!" So colourful!

The thing about plants--you love them and they love you back.
The best part--they bloom! :)

  2. I've always wanted to take up gardening as a serious hobby. We're constructing a house now, and I'm considering asking my parents to have a roof-garden and a balcony one. And yes true! If we love plants, they love us back. :)

  18. When choosing an area to put your herb garden, you should remember that the soil should have extremely good drainage.

  20. Flowers make way for the emotions and feelings to express just the perfect way. When you are completely clueless about how to result a simple yet worth memorable gift, its flowers that always comes handy for your purpose. An occasion to remember-that’s the one you always wished for, and collections at www.flowerdeliverydelhi.com will give you something beyond that.

  21. Purple lilac symbolizes "first emotions of love" in the language of flowers. The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography.

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
