A Potted Garden!

Hi Friends,

Hope you are all well and happy and healthy. We are all doing ok at our end.

Now don’t you be surprised to see us here. Guess what? Mummy had a lighter day at work today!!

Yes, this really is a sad state of affairs. Our blogging is now decided by how many people fall sick and come to Mummy’s department for treatment!! Should we all start crossing our paws for the general health and well being of everyone if we want to continue blogging?



Anyway, we have been waiting to tell you something. Look what we found outside our door the other Sunday!

Yes, an abandoned broken pot full of top soil!




Ever since we started living in a house perched high up in the sky closure to the clouds, we have begun to value the earth so much more.

The feel of the earth is special now. Not only do we need to walk down and out so much farther to get our paws on the earth and the grass, even the soil for our potted plants come so precious!

That is why we were pleasantly surprised to find this pot near the lift, close to our front door. One of our neighbours seem to have ‘killed’ one of their plants and broken the pot!

Sadly there was nothing we could do for the plant, but we didn’t feel it would be right to let the soil go waste. So there, two of our pots got a refill!




Talking of pots, do you think a potted garden counts? Why shouldn’t it, anyway. It adds to the atmospheric oxygen as well as any other tree that is being planted.

We are talking about this very enthusiastic initiative by the Delhi Government.




There are centres at various metro-rail stations distributing free saplings, encouraging everyone to plant and look after at least one tree each this monsoon.

We think we are doing our bit towards the cause.

Over the past few weeks we have been working on our garden real hard.

We want to give it an earthy and ethnic look. We did get some unfinished terracotta pots but Mummy is yet to get down to painting them. She is sure to take ages!

If you ask us, we think she should have just got the finished ones and not entertain grand ideas of a DIY project.

But well, at least our plants are looking greener by the day and are really lively. And we do have one nice little Ganesha idol that looks bright and animated.






We are hoping Mummy can manage some time soon to paint those pots too.

Paws crossed…HA!

In moments of discouragement and defeat, there are always certain things to cling on to.

Little things usually: remembered laughter, the face of  a sleeping child, the reminder of something deeply felt or dearly loved.

No man is so poor as not to have any of these small candles. When they are lighted, darkness goes away and a touch of wonder remains…

HELLO HELLO FRIENDS….How have u been?

Tell us this now…there aren’t any restrictions against being wordless on weekdays like we usually are on Wednesdays, are there now?

You see, we have made a decision.

We are going to be wordless or should we say ‘at least’ wordless on all days.

If you’ve noticed, we haven’t been around for centuries now. And we feel so terrible we aren’t even attempting to make any excuses.

Blogging has been an enriching experience not only because we get to see and learn so much but also because we’ve made so many lovely friends from all over the world. Even though we have never met and will, in all probability, never meet we feel we know you all so well.

We haven’t been blogging at all for quite some time now and we can’t even begin to tell you how much we have missed you all.

Even though we haven’t gone and visited you we want you all to know that we have been thinking about you everyday…..a lot.


Over the past year, You’d been with us as we laughed and cried. You shared your lives with us as we did ours…

Blogging is no longer just our thoughts spoken out loud…

Each day of the last month that passed by without us having posted even a single word made us increasingly restless.

There just had to be some way…if you love doing something so much you must just find a way…

And then we realised…we could JUST BE WORDLESS!

How utterly stupid of us!

Here we are forever with a camera clicking away pictures worth terra bites of disk space and we complain about not being able to post a blog!

Didn’t someone say ‘pictures speak a thousand words’ or something to that effect?

Besides, friends do not really need too many words to understand you, do they?


So then, it is decided. We are at least going wordless on days we can’t pen down too many words. But we promise we will try not to make a habit of this and actually write!

And we will also try and visit you all at least once a week. We really, really will.

And now, for today’s picture (s)…..
