Green fields, blue skies!

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive.”
~Eleanora Duse

The Act of Disappearing

Just so that I could watch the sunset during the flight, I took a window seat on the left side of the plane (I was flying from South to North). And I was so glad I got it! :D

It was the closest sunset experience I could have, I suppose.

My Mother’s Pixels

Last month, my Mom visited her parents’ home, which is located in a very beautiful place. It is almost plain, with little hills and plenty of tea gardens and is completely surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Since, I couldn’t accompany her (sadly), so she took the camera with her so that she could later show me what she saw. So sweet of her! And tea gardens used to be my favorite place to play and hide during my early childhood days. Aaah, the aroma! :) :D

She doesn’t have a blog, so I thought I would share those pictures for her. :) The photos were quite good, and for some of them I simply did some editing in Picasa.

Location: Palampur, Himachal Pradesh, India. (Now, this place is literally sitting on the lap of Himalayas - Dhauladhar Range, lit. the White Range)

“Oh the White!”

“Bamboo”

 “Classic Red and Green

“A Perfect Capture”

“My Mom’s Mom (i.e. my Nani ji (grandmom))”

“Geraniums are from my Mom’s garden (originally pink)”

Love you Mom, missing you!

March “Springs” – Flowers on the Road

“Silently a flower blooms,
In silence it falls away;
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of
the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth
of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here.”
-  Zenkei Shibayama

Yay, Spring is here! Cheers. :D

:)

These flowers decorate the boundary walls of a school named DPS (near Badhani, Punjab). I always look forward to observe this place whenever I pass from here. It’s so colorful and clean. :)
