Floral Art

Hi Friends,

Still bringing to you stories from my Delhi visit.This one is about my cousin A who is the manager of a prominent B&B in Old Delhi.She is extremely talented.This time I witnessed another unique talent of hers.She does amazing patterns with flowers as a decor in her Hotel which houses guests mostly from foreign countries.They are also truly impressed by her talent and hospitality.She uses easily available flowers like the rose and marigold and creates these in a matter of minutes.I asked her to send me pictures of her work so that I could share it with all of you.Have a look…

My Green Thumb

I cannot tell how and when I fell in love with gardening ..but today it is a passion.It is as much a part of my housekeeping as my living room or my kitchen.I keep adding and removing features and accessories from the garden just like I  change  my  cushion covers or bedsheets.Funny…but once you are into it..it becomes a passion.

A quick peep into my garden and the choicest flowers that I’ve had over the past two years.

garden 111The lovely petunias……I plant these in several pots..first because they come in a variety of colour combinations and second, they last till April.

This is how the garden looks in winters when it is in full bloom.the pots have been kept on a raised platform outside the main garden area .i made this area myself by using broken tiles.
