Because it feels like Christmas

16 Nov

The reds and the greens spotting the balcony and the slight nip in the air, sure feels like Christmas. Warm days and the chilly evenings, marking my favourite season of the year- Winter. And unlike , the other parts of the world, I am glad that there are some flowers still blooming and keep my spirits high.. Come take a peek at the lovely Christmasy  Poinsettia that I bought , on a trip to Chikmagalur this January.

Hope you enjoyed the burst of colour, these are especially  for my gardening buddies from the colder parts of the world. Here’s sending some warmth and colour from my lil balcony..

    Visiting after some time. Went through all the posts that I missed, from the peppers to the carrots to the bonsai to the yellow roses. Keep up the good work, Sonia!
