Spring Sentiments

Some things simply prove to be a blessing in disguise! My old digicam developed some strange snag and won’t work howsoever hard I may try, it was pure misery. The first couple of days went showing the thing around to supposedly more electronically oriented friends of mine, but the problem, it seemed, was even beyond their technologically superior brains. It is so remarkable that whenever you are deprived of something, you yearn for it the most; precisely that happened to me as I saw beautiful blooms and butterflies, bees and birds, things I failed to appreciate with a working camera, but were beckoning when the damned camera won’t work.It was then that I decided that the time is ripe to reward myself with a brand new camera, a Sony cybershot H10. Armed with my new acquisition I set out to capture the dwindling charm of Spring in retreat. It is still a Rosy picture with spring deciding to stay a few more days before it is officially the start of summer season. Daytime temperatures are touching 33-35degreeC and the petals of this giant Dahlia appear to be a metaphor for the blazing Sunrays. Spring is comfortable and beautiful, and with it go the gorgeous butterflies but not before they have done their bit to help propagate the blooms. This little fruit is going to grow all the way into a sweet, luscious Mango and with my taste buds tingling in anticipation; I’ve a very delectable reason to look forward to summers. But these are the blooms in my life which do not come and go with season, which need more than usual pampering but then they also reward with such warm licks and hugs…

You are right dear Green Thumb, we always pine for what we cannot have. But the breaking down of your old camera has opened a new door for you; now you get to explore all the new gadgets your new camera comes with. ;-) Happy snapping and treasure those non garden blooms in your life!

Oh Green Thumb, your last picture was the absolute best. I love seeing your daughter as she grows. She has such a sparkle in her eyes and a smile that could melt anyone! And the gorgeous Bruno has those wonderful, soulful chocolate lab eyes ... cherish these days for they pass so quickly!

It is hard imagining that it is already in the 30c+ range during the day. The mangoes will be growing and ripening in no time!!
