Some garden pics


The last two years seemed really long- first there was graduate school, then there was pregnancy and then came the baby. The full time job was present throughout. Not all pure delight! But I have now graduated and I am thinking of making cupcakes and roasting a chicken and making some kaalan.


Our garden has totally overgrown. Perennials have overtaken the whole garden. Weeds are flourishing. We are slowly reclaiming it. It’s not like we can go out an garden with abandon. The baby needs to be placed somewhere. We put him in the patio with his toys but can’t be left alone. Don’t get me’s not like we were great gardeners before the baby, but we could garden at will. Even without any care, there are spectacular flowers on show. Imagine if they were cared for!!

Melt in your mouth chocolate cupcakes

My first attempt at a cupcake from here. Thanks Archana for the help.


If you have organic rose in your garden, make some gulkhand.

  8. Hi dear… This is my first visit to your blog and i am so happy i found this great space…
    The garden pictures are so beautiful and the roses look simply, abundantly beautiful …

  9. I feel so delighted whenever I see gardens and lawns that are really taken care of.. Like they are landscaped and maintained beautifully to enhance the surroundings. Gardens are indeed a way to relieve stress, and they even catch the attention of passers by leaving some sort of appreciation to the owner of the garden. So basically, it is really essential to have someone help keep maintain the beauty of the garden if the owner is too busy to do it on his own. Remember that your surroundings can reflect who you are as a person, so much better to keep it clean and green. šŸ™‚
