Happiness doesn’t depend on what we have, but it does depend on how we feel towards what we have. We can be happy with little and miserable with much ~ William D. Hoard.
The earth laughs in flowers ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.~ Marcel Proust
What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.~ John Lubbock,

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.
Happiness is like a butterfly, the more you chase it, the more it will evade you, but if you notice the other things around you, it will gently come and sit on your shoulder ~ Henry David Thoreau
To those who celebrate Diwali –
With Gleam of Diyas,
And the Echo of the Chants,
May Happiness and Contentment Fill Your life!
Wishing you a very happy and prosperous Diwali!
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

Travel doesn’t become adventure until you leave yourself behind. ~
The coffee and the cakes… muaaah!
Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon the most insipid, most insignificant place becomes a mirror of the world, a window on life, a theatre of humanity. ~
Guess the place 🙂
