It's that time of the year again!! All year, I await the blooming of the pink and the purple beauties of spring time. I look forward to it in the same way someone might await a celestial phenomenon or a hugely popular festival or an important event -sporting /cultural/ traditional/ personal ...you name it! There...

A work of art! #ThursdayTreeLove

Waking up in a new country, actually a new continent altogether, and walking to the work place, taking in the chill, and the morning views on the way.. thats how I remember my first morning in Johannesburg (June 2019) 🙂 The first day was slightly tiring, possibly due to the travel, the winter chill (and...

Moonscapes

There is something magical about the moon! Isnt it 🙂 Nostalgia rushes in when I think of the moon... Lil me being fed lovingly by granma or mom, while being told tales about the moon. And that scene repeated with my little sisters and then with little Ammu and little Adi... goes on... isnt it... Continue Reading →

Fragrant Lilies #FridayFlowers

Its been a while since I've bought flowers for myself. But glad to have found these lovelies while browsing through my archives after a back-up exercise (yes my phone is bursting with pictures 😛 ). Lilies (Lilium), in general, are very attractive and enhance the beauty of flower bouquets, and of the spaces around. In... Continue Reading →

Festive glow! #ThursdayTreeLove

Re-living the memory of our trip to Mahabalipuram! We were in the resort during the last week of December, in the days leading up to the new year. The place was all decorated and we loved the festive vibes during the evenings when the space was all lit up! Sharing a couple of pictures which... Continue Reading →

I say feat, because, to get the kids these days to love anything from our times is an achievement, let alone from the black and white times.. right? 🙂 A... Continue Reading →

When flowers beckon!

I was fascinated when I'd read about the cannon ball tree, especially the flowers seemed interesting and appealed to the botanist in me. It has an unusual arrangement of the stamens which has been modified into a hood. And is hence known as the Naga Linga flower and the tree is the Naga Linga tree. Not very... Continue Reading →

Quilling Love

From the drafts. Edited today to add Adi's creation 🙂 The quilling spree continues! This time she was not inspired enough to make ornaments like before. Instead, she wanted to try her hand at advanced techniques and was expecting me to get her the tools for that. She also complained that she had quilling strips... Continue Reading →

Play

From the drafts... As I might have mentioned before, I have not been a physical activities or a sports type person for much of my life. That kind of changed a few years back when I started learning dance. Then came yoga which I learnt/practiced for some amount of time, followed by swimming classes last... Continue Reading →

Love of nail art #ABCWednesdays

Ammu has always been fascinated by nail colour. Come weekends or holidays her first request would be to apply nail colour and mehendi !! And boy! she would be the happiest when I gave her the green signal 😀 There was a time a couple of years ago when she'd become so obsessed with nail... Continue Reading →

But what remains unchanged through all this are the kisses n hugs! At times... there used to be tiny wars too! On who... Continue Reading →

Growing up!
