I woke up in the morning as usual. After I came back from my school ( Yes I still go to school at this age, not to be taught but to teach ) I felt like going out for a long drive. Then I decided against as it was raining.
I’m so inspired by Mrs.Angloswiss evening walks. Not that I don’t go for my walks but I don’t carry my camera like her during walks. If at all I have to click something, my mobile phone fulfills the need.
Finally it stopped raining for a while, I didn’t waste time and left immediately. I wish Mrs.Angloswiss was there with me. We both could’ve clicked some amazing pics but we don’t have swiss cows to shoot. Perhaps she wouldn’t have join without Mr. Swiss. After all she is a golden oldie, eh !
I headed towards the open space behind our colony. The walking route is beautiful. As we start walking, 50 meters ahead our enclave the road opens in a small golf course that has turned greener. There are big grounds on both sides of the road. Wow ! I was enjoying clicking photos though it was little embarrassing to hang a camera while walking in the cantonment. soldiers/officers were wondering, ” What happened to memsahib /ma’am today ? Anything for blog and pictures, I no more feel embarrassed now.
It had been raining continuously for last 48 hours. The effect has been so soothing. Terrific weather, cheerful surroundings and nature at its best. I was remembering the following lines of an article “spring blossoms” by Francine Raymond published in ‘The Telegraph’
“Nothing lifts the souls more than a glimpse of blossoming boughs, with pretty pink or white petals falling like confetti on to warming soil.” I had to agree on this. So what if the petals were yellow !
Creepers have grown so wild and high that they almost covered the entire tree.
There is a giant old banyan tree with its ariel prop roots right in the middle of one of the grounds. You just cannot escape it. I daily come across the tree and wonder that how old it must be ! Tarun sometimes talk about it about its majestic look while we both walk together.
Who would want to write about artificial things like tattoos and pain its causes when nature is blessing us with such beautiful gifts.
Atleast not me.
Frankly speaking I don’t like piercing needles in my body. Rather if I have to use it I will go for an artificial one.
So enjoy the nature at its best in rainy aka green season.
