Y – Yummy

Have you ever given it a thought? No matter how much we curse the summer heat, the best things that nature offers to you, is during summer. While winter strips of the trees, leaving them bare, it is during summer that you will find the trees dressed in their best green, blooming with the prettiest…

V – Vintage

I know I have written nothing about our Agumbe trip from last year. It’s really sad on my part considering the fact that it was my most favorite trip in recent times. One of these days I have to come around and note down the things from this beautiful trip. Meanwhile using the opportunity of…

S – SmartBin

N – New

From the past couple of years one of my resolutions has been to try something new. As in everything, I know I could have done better, but I am glad for a few things that I have tried in the past year. Usually there are a whole lot of things that I am interested in,…

H – Heat

The temperatures are soaring day by day and we aren’t even half way through summer. What is it that we have done and doing to our planet? Year after year the rains are failing and rivers and lakes depleting. Imagine the plight of people who have to work on the streets in this summer, the…

A – April

Not that I intended to participate or that I had any such plans. I usually used to notice that the A-Z challenge has started, nearly a week after it had. That meant I couldn’t catch up anyway. šŸ˜› I had taken up this challenge once before. Today when I realized that it’s been just two…

New found love!

I owe a big thank you to all you lovely people who commented on my last post and pushed me to stand up for myself. I did pick an opportunity to speakĀ about how it is tough to manage without a helpĀ and that I get tired too, with all the work.Ā It was more like a fight,…

Meanwhile in my garden..

I was very sad that my plants weren’t growing. So I reached out to Dr. Rajendra and Dr. Vishwanath, with whom I had attended a workshop, in January. They pointed out that problem must be in the compost I used and gave me suggestions of what I could do. After following their advice, my plants…

Birthday Celebration – II (My gift and Trip Day 1)

After having arranged for the gift, I was at peace as there would be no last minute rush of what to get. However I knew that BG would have no inclination to get a gift or plan anything for the birthday, like his typical self. So for one, I planned the Mangalore trip and two,…

Towards a greener future!

Like I had mentioned in my year-end post, I had been on a lookout for workshops on gardening. Though I had read about a few, I couldn’t find any that would suit me and I was occupied on most weekends with a lot of other things. On New Yearā€™s Eve we visited the event that…

Random updates!

Some of my plants are progressing well, while some died. šŸ˜¦ I can’t seem to figure out which ones need how much sunlight/water. Also most of them have stunted growth. They don’t seem to grow tall at all! Still trying to figure out things. Meanwhile two OkrasĀ made appearance while all the other veggies seemed to…

Orchids…

… now seem like such common flowers, don’t they? I mean we see them used for decoration in every other wedding reception, party. Weren’t they like rare flowers and very expensive? But I guess those days gone, in many ways. Now we get everything all year round, be it specific flowers or fruits, with all…
