Flowers!


.Flowers....something I am in love with..I always dream t of opening a nursery of plants and flowers... most of the pocket money was spent in buying flowers or fresh green indoor plants ..it was a passion though expensive one!! ....

Roses are the favorites ..coming to US I was surprised to see quality and colors of specially roses..spending hrs in grocery stores near the floral section and admiring them...my hubby bringing fresh roses ... a delight ....then came Carnations ..beautiful colors and texture...in flowers...
.
.Holland I visited near Michigan to see tulip festival...farms full of various colors of tulips.. I felt like "Alice in wonderland"

In India my favorites were Chrysanthemums ..usually seen in winter season...our school garden was full of them ..huge big spongy flowers ..with lot of colors..white looks divine in them....
Cosmos ..another one ,its like a giraffe flower ..long neck and parallel flowers on the neck...Purple looks awesome in those kind!
..I had been to Tennessee for vacation last yr at smokey mountains..I was surprised to see wild flowers on the valley and hills ..purple ,yellow and baby pink..like decorated valleys and lush green trees surrounded by them..A MUST SEE!!

Every flower has a meaning and history behind it..where it came from?,but flowers are used for different moods and occasions...People who don't like flowers I personally feel are very dry in nature!!

Summers are here ..yesterday driving across I could see the whole street in pink and white floral trees decorated by the city .... dreamy kinda atmosphere created on streets...
Downtown baskets of all kinds of flowers are hung on the corners ..so very fresh look has been given by every city..to make it beautiful..




.NO wonder summer is HERE!( in spite of the chill)
