A short visit to botanical garden

Last week I had an unplanned visit to a botanical garden. Though the summer is already gone in this part of the world the garden was nonetheless very green and perfect for relaxing walk. The garden holds a large and varied collection of trees and shrubs planted in a systematic fashion after plant families. Also there are two green houses The Palm House from 1868 and The Victoria House from 1876 present exotic plants from other parts of the world.

I heard about the giant waterlillies from amazon which I missed unfortunately.

I could not spend a lot of time exploring garden and taking more diverse and detailed images still I decided to share my experience with you all for Jo’s Monday walk.

I hope you like this short walk. Next year I shall plan a thorough visit.

Weekend 60: Eerie shots

This last week it was difficult to spend time on blog and social media in general due to work and 2 days of travelling. I got to travel by train both ways. The landscape was picturesque but it varied a lot in different parts as we travelled from sea level to 1222 m above sea level. I took many pictures but didn’t get time to see them before today 🙂

The first batch of photos contains the eerie ones.

I wonder how does it look in dark days of winter 😀

Nurturing Thursday: Move forward

Not every event/moment/person in our life turned up the way we expected but this does not define us. Let us try not have any grudges. In doing so we cure ourselves easily and move forward. Accept it and forget it.

Maturity is learning to walk away from poeple and situations that threatens your peace of mind, self respect, values moral and self worth~Unknown

Sunrise over the Charles bridge in Prague

Charles Bridge is a 14th century bridge linking the two sides of Prague, across the Vltava river. One fine morning in April we decided to take an early morning walk to watch sunrise over the famous Charles bridge.

The shot was taken at 5:29 am from the hotel window.
