For the Love of Flowers!

Hey there! How have you been? We have been busy with Dasara Gombe planning.  It would be a basic 3 steps and tiny landscape set-up this year. The babies are all excited. All the jugad for setting up steps with the things at home is figured out! I had been dreaming of putting up gombe for long time now. A super hectic corporate job never allowed it. Hope we will continue this tradition in coming years too.
 
After collecting all the wonderful tips from amazing BCLers, we have been making multiple trips to Jayanagar 4th Block to buy clay dolls & dress the Maharaja, Maharani dolls. We have been trying to grow Methi in take-out boxes. Keeping fingers crossed that the seeds will germinate, grow & be nice till the end of Dasara. The babies are excited to share their toy animals & cars as a part of the set-up.
 
In one of such trip today, got a bunch of roses from Jayanagar complex. After trimming the stems & removing the thorns & arranging them at  varied containers at home, This is how it looked! I am a happy person today!
 

Yes, These roses are in blue green & purple, it was white roses dipped in colours...





 

Some graced Kitchen counter too :)

 
Have a great weekend folks!
