Bracing up for Summer

Ready for a watermelon mint cooler?


How are you all getting ready for summer?
Cotton clothes, brighter decor, fresh fruit juice, plucking flowers from the garden instead of going to the local flower shop, bringing out the shorts n sleeveless tshirt you tucked away in winter, thicker curtains to get that five-minutes more sleep in the mornings? :) 
What are your plans for this summer? I for one am heading to cooler, high-altitude, beeeyootiful SIKKIM next week!!

Have a great rest of the week folks!

Transformed Windows

If I had a sunny window,
             It would be bursting with foliage n flowers ...

So when I look out,
            I'd see the world with rose colored glasses!

Flower Arrangements

Here's one more post that is back-home-inspired!
My mom has deco-ed up several corners of home with interesting floral arrangements. I find it very interesting how she mixes different types of vases and pots, flowers and leaves to brighten up each space.

Here's one in a mud pot ...

This one's a mix of artificial and natural ...

And here's another bunch spicing up a cane basket


I've linked this to Paisley Passions, the Trendy Treehouse and to Savvy Southern Style!

Come Spring!

The garden at my parents' home in Kerala is in full bloom now! The greens are lusher, and there are bursts of colour everywhere.

And when the sun shines, the green patch looks extremely inviting!
Peep in ...








Tulsi and bougainvillea ...



The overgrown palm trees make an effective green wall ...



And there are bunches of mangoes waiting to ripen and be plucked!


I'm sharing this spring joy at Patty's green thumb link party, Southern Day Dreamer and at Mosaic Monday!

This weekend's pick

The weekend was a joy ride ... we went visiting to an aunt's place in Pondicherry. The six hour stretch especially the return route we took ... Pondi - Thiruvannamalai - Krishnagiri - Bangalore, was simply beautiful!! Several lovely farming villages, lush green fields and mountains kept company all through our way with me going "wooow", "pls stop the car, let me take a snap" all along :))

Amidst photographs of the towering glory of the mountains, paddy fields, and of course the sights and sounds of the stylishly French Pondicherry, the ones below are my favourites from this weekend ...
