Travel Challenge – Day 3

I was nominated by our fellow blogger Derrick Knight to post one favourite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures and 10 nominations. Instead of nominating one person I would like to invite everyone of you to participate.

Be kind and post at least one of your favourite travel photo. Please link to me so I know you have participated. If you are not interested, no problem.

Nowhere in the rules does it say you can’t guess where the photo was taken.

Stay safe, stay healthy and be kind.

Eureka: Mystery solved

Gardening simply does not allow one to be mentally old, because too many hopes and dreams are yet to be realized.~Allan Armitage.

Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.~Unknown

In mid July I asked for help to recognize the name of a perennial plant as I lost the name card. Recently many buds have started to open and a few dark pink flowers are blooming on it. Apparently it’s a variety of late blooming aster,  may be its Marie dark pink aster.

I donot remember why I chose the specific plants for my garden. I knew nothing then but was quite eager to try something new. In last couple of months I learned many interesting things about gardening and I am so happy.

There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments.~ Janet Kilburn Phillips

So plant your own gardens and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.~ Jorge Luis Borges

The imapct of lock down on all of us is beyond measure. The sudden change in life style was difficult for many of us. I was fortunate enough as the idea of gardening came to my rescue. I am definitely not a homebody or hermite but I am managing it 🙂

I have a couple of flowering plants. The garden is blooming in various phases first tulips, then azaleas and rhododendrons with early perennials.  Now roses are back but beautiful bright flowering zinnia are show stoppers.
