Day 11- Friday Flora


This is a tree in my backyard which, for a good part of the year remains all leafy. Come November and it gets enveloped by flowers. I don’t know the name of this flower, can’t even claim the tree as my own because, going by the huge size  it was probably planted eons ago, much much much before we moved into the house.

But today when we had had a slightly tough start to the day with my father-in-law getting hospitalized for a minor health-scare, this was a refreshing sight to walk into. R & I were greeted by this huge curtain of flowers. Though it was funny to see almost an equal amount of flowers lying on the ground like a carpet. The blooms and greens covered all around somehow gave us a certain kind of positivity, a certain kind of hope that we could hold on to.

Sometimes you appreciate a sight even more, no matter how ordinary it may look, because of the calmness it brings in you at a particular point of time. You just want to hold on to it and assure yourself that everything is going to be alright.

So that’s that for today. R is on his way to be with his father. Here’s hoping tomorrow would dawn with something better to offer. Do keep my FIL in your thoughts 🙂

Have a lovely weekend!

 

Wednesday 18: Flora

Plants, greenery, blooms, flowers, flora, these are all terms that cheer me always.
So you can imagine how happy today’s theme makes me. Here’s a collage of some plants that adorn my garden, that make the house we live in even more beautiful. Nah I have no hand in their upkeep, it’s my gardener’s.
