Yesterday, on finding Nicole's blog tagged, I anticipated this, and here I am struggling with all my recent and past memories (curse you Colin!) for those five things about me, my life. After much introspection I've come out with these: 1. At the age of Two, while walking in a dark night, I fell in an open Sewer manhole(eeeeeks!). Fortunately my hand stuck out and my cousin,who was accompanying me, caught it in time and pulled me out. Well since then, thankfully, civic facilities have improved and I, personally am, more careful. 2. Besides Gardening I am very fond of pets. Right now I have a Chocolate Labrador whom I simply adore! In my School days I had a few rabbits and two lovely Parrots as my companions. 3. I met my Husband during my Medical College days. We were Batch-mates and liked each other right since our first meeting. He formally proposed me in the Anatomy Dissection hall with a cadaveric upper limb and the dissection table separating us. (I guess that will count among the top 10 unlikliest places to be proposed). 4. I love Dancing. I've got some training in 'Kathak' dance (classical dance form from north-India) and would love to learn 'Salsa' and 'Tango'. 5. Someday I wish to own a big nursery of diverse varieties of plants! Now I,ll have to bring my sadistic tendencies to fore to name five 'victims' for this blogtag thing. 1.lilymarlene 2.yum 3.parnika 4.earlysnowdrop 5.doughlas

Here blooms my first Pansy of the season. I have always been fascinated by Pansies…that cute face staring at you with a mixture of frown and deep thought, I remember reading somewhere that the word Pansy is derived from French word pensee- meaning ‘thought’ as the flower looks busy in some deep thought!

WHEN THE HELL WILL IT STOP???
At first it won't rain for months and finally when it does, it is untimely and shows no sign of stopping.
First few drops soothed my soul but the rest of them have soaked my garden and suffocated my plants, my heart cries for these poor things still standing defiantly against this unexpected onslaught. I hope the rains stop soon...
