Gardening! My new-found love...


We went on our anniversary to Mahabaleshwar....and everyone you get to see people selling strawberries!!!! :-) Ambitious and greedy that I am, I picked up a strawberry plant from the nursery to plant in my small humble garden(!?).....

A few days later, i couldnt believe my eyes...my efforts gave fruit! Literally!!! There are strawberries in my garden...REAL STRAWBERRIES!! The first thing I do as soon as I get up is to water the plants ...when i saw it, my happiness knew no bounds...dragged S to see it...I was beaming all day... There is another plant that I have, which attracts a lot of sparrows to my balcony, which is right outside my bedroom....so most of the time, we wake up to the sound of chirrupping birds, which is very rare to find nowadays... A lovely way to start the day, isnt it??

Read an article in the paper, about happiness and ways to remain happy and optimistic! There, I have added one more to the list! Nurturing plants is like nurturing children! I feel like they tell me....come and see! How well I have grown! Its theraupatic...

Have started practising pranayama, though I hate to admit it, it has done wonders for me and S...its definitely very beneficial...makes me feel light and good... thanks to amma again! :-)
