Snapshots from my garden. (post 20)

One of the things I love to do in the morning, before I begin my day, is spend time in my terrace garden. We grow our own vegetables. I have blogged about in in the past, and also shared pictures.
There's another post I wrote too which talks about how I started one.

Today I share with  you two pictures from my garden.



 I also have a lovely cactus collection which is full of flowers, in full bloom. I share many pictures on my snapchat. (Preeti.Shenoy is my snap id) and you can follow me there to see what I am up to on a daily basis.
More tomorrow.
Good night folks.

  1. I love reading about gardening. These pictures are refreshing. Unfortunately, I am a failed gardener. :(

  2. That lemon looks so refreshing! It's awesome that you grow your own vegetables. Read your post about organic terrace garden. That's a wealth of information there. Can't applaud you couple enough for all the efforts to grow and sustain this treasure of fresh veggie plants. I long to start growing my own vegetables too, but I live in an apartment, with plenty of sunlight, but with no balcony and a toddler at home. I might have to postpone this for a few years.

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…

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…
