Gardening!

The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic,always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before. - Vita Sackville-West

Gardening as I said is an addiction. I went riding to the nursery looking for some flowers in white and blue (Two colours missing from my collection) But did not really like any they had. Any suggestions for me?

The Malabar Spinach (Basale) creeper is growing well and so it needed an arrangement to display itself. During my previous trip to Mangalore I got some Bamboo from home, to construct a platform as support for the creeper.

The grass that I got with my sprout watch is happy to find some soil and good nutrition; it is overflowing from the pot with joy in my dining room. :-)


Painted a small card; its silver spray paint with a gear blocking some region of the paper and poster colour to bring nature into it. :-) I plan to gift this to a friend.


When gardeners garden, it is not just plants that grow, but the gardeners themselves. - Ken Druse

  1. Your plants look beautiful. I have to admit my gardening is limited only to watering the plants these days.

  10. Great effort and glad to hear that you are finding another interest!

    Aside from flowers, are you planning on growing any organic vegetables for the family? :) I grew some melons in the backyard too but had only been watering them during the weekends.
