Three interesting postcards from my garden

 Hi there!

How was today for you? My day was hectic. I have no idea where the time went--it was spent mostly doing mundane chores around the home.

No matter how busy or stressed I am, when I am watering my garden, I am filled with a sense of awe. How beautiful nature is!  I've always felt that writing a book is so similar to gardening. You need to sow the seeds (an idea), you need to fertilise the soil (developing the plot), you need to water it every day (write daily), and most of all, you need to be consistent and patient. It can take months before you are rewarded with a flower! (the book!)

For today's post, I  combined my love for the written word with my love for flowers and gardening. I love postcards--they are always exciting. The charm of a postcard never fades, especially in today's age, where communication is instant (and fleeting). Long before the internet, when we went on a holiday, we'd mail pretty postcards from that place, to someone we missed. They were lovely reminders that the person is being thought of. I have a collection of some treasured postcards which my good friends have sent from various places.

I thought it would be interesting to create postcards, using photos of flowers that are growing in my garden.

So here are three postcards to self. I hope you enjoy them too.


Do you like postcards too? Which of these are your favourites?
Tell me in comments :)

Also tell me if you are enjoying my blog marathon, and if there are any specific topics you want me to write about. (Today is day 6. I will be blogging everyday for 30 days!)

See you tomorrow!




  1. Lovely post and analogy. I still have penpals and we write letters and send postcards :)

  2. Namaskaram Preetiji.It is interesting how you have intertwined Writing and Gardening.So true.This is such a profound post

    Postcards a piece of nostalgia ,a glimpse of the past.
    When life was so laidback and nothing was so fast.
    Where our small worlds were large to us and nurtured with personal touch.
    Where life was not complicated with everything being a virtual touch.
    Where hearts and emotions were in rythum
    Not dictated by a set of algorithms.

    We can't go back in time we all know
    Thus we are now where we are bound to be
    So best advice for today is "LET IT GO".

    Look this is how you inspire me.Your posts on poems yesterday and today this new perspective.Thank you.

    Love what you write so write whatever you want coz whatever you write is special for me.πŸ€—πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›πŸ‘πŸ™

    1. Thank you do very much--and that's a lovely poem you wrote! Happy it inspired your creativity.

  3. Good evening, Preeti. The postcards are so beautiful and I cannot select which is my favorite, because I think all of them are so pretty :-) As a child, I remember sending postcards to my friends during the Summer Vacation. Long gone is this practice of sending postcards as things have become digital and whenever we travel, we click a photo and send it or post it instantly on Social Media. Technology is amazing, isn't it? However, writing letters and sending postcards is something I would love to start doing again in life. I am thoroughly enjoying your Blog Marathon because it is something I look forward to every year. No matter what happens during the day, your Post is a piece of inspiration in my life. I cherish it a lot. Take care.

  4. your ability to feel at peace with nature is inspiring
