Summer at home…

“Live at home”~ George Washington Carver

This is the first summer I am not travelling to India or any other places. The travel restrictions have forced me to stay here. In the beginning I felt sad but then I started thinking about “Something good will always come out of something bad”. 

I started enjoying my everyday hike/walk and I decided to work on my front garden.

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.~ May Sarton

I love to spend time in my little garden (there are not so many plants yet) and I am glad I trusted my instincts.

I love the smell of positivity in the morning ~Unknown                                                        If you really like the post please leave a word. It will help me in visiting your blog.              I am on vacation but instead of leaving the canvas blank I have scheduled a few posts.

Weekend special 36: Collage of Roses

Once someone asked me, “Are you always in nature”.

I realised, why not? Why can’t I be in nature at least “when I wish”?

As Lord Byron says, “There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.Nature always wears the colors of the spirit”

According to my philosophy,  shopping can be done when needed in any kind of weather,  whether it’s everyday grocery or a party dress. For being in nature and to capture moments I have some restrictions and follow some rules.

So when the weather permits and is not bad (saying good is difficult even for weather forecast department these days 🙂 ) I try to be in nature instead of being part of “the” crowd in shopping centres or being couch potato or reading all stereotype forwarded messages on social media.

Here I am presenting Collage of roses: Part1  a few takes from yesterday’s visit to local rose garden. Unfortunately I can only share the pictures not the fragrance.
