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.

Weekend Special 35

Last Sunday I visited the local Botanical garden. It was rose day but due to non stop rain for more than three weeks, the flowers suffered a lot.

Actually on Sunday we made a new record of consecutive rainy summer days. This june is the most wettest June, earlier it was recorded in 1952. It’s raining every day including today 🙂 . Anyways, I managed to take some pictures and I hope you would like them.

 

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: View from the side

Workwise, this last week was an extremely busy week. I had no time for training during office hours ¹. The work demands persistence and expertise and leaves no chance for procastination. Anyways all went well and I am happy for that. Yesterday we were blessed with few hours of sunlight, I felt like it was God’s gift to me 🙂

I decided to visit different places in search of “Spring”.  The cherry on the top was walking around a lake watching this beautiful swan.

French artisit Paul Cezane has said, “art is a harmony parallel with nature”.  So, here is my entry for Cee’s theme  “View from the side
