Make a miniature garden (blog marathon post 18)

For the last few days, I have been wanting to make a miniature garden in a container, and I have been heuristically combing the Internet for information about it. This morning when I went on my walk, I found some moss --thanks to the incessant  Bangalore rains of the last two days, and I knew the time had come to create my miniature garden.


Here is what I made!


You can see the little sea-shell path leading upto the tiny house. The sea-shells, I had collected from the Maldives.  The rocks that you see, I collected from the road side, and the plants were existing ones that I had in my garden.

To give you an idea of the size of the container, I clicked another picture:


You can see how small the container is.

Now I am all set on creating another one, this time in a slightly bigger container.

If you too want to create miniature gardens. click here.

If you liked my garden, do tell me in my comments! I look forward to hearing from you.
Till tomorrow, take care!
Love
Preeti,

  6. Many individuals have flying creature feeders in their garden, in part to pull in fowls and in part since they can be exceptionally embellishing garden complements. Again there are boundless outlines, one thought being to join a sundial with a flying creature feeder or to consolidate a feeder with a water basin. Click here

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
