A sneak peek into my parents' garden ...

Every time I visit my parents' home, the one place where I always look forward to spend my time is their garden - the plants are always laden with flowers in vibrant colors and there are more plants than one can imagine probably hundreds of them in the small area to one side of the house and on the terrace.Both my parents are avid gardeners - and thatz' where my love for greenery comes from..Though both mom and dad share their love for gardening it's mom who is crazy about her plants -  always visiting local nurseries hunting for new plants...In fact, her garden is the one thing that she worries about when she has to leave  home for a long duration .... ;-) ;-) ....

Here are some pictures - most of them shot by me during a recent visit to my parents' home ....
  







  
I am still researching on my momz' weird tastes...
Thatz' a cracked ceramic jug  - Seeing this just
brought a smile to my face... ;-) ;-)



Mom's Orchid plant collection ....  








Crown of Thorns in different shades...
They are always surrounded by honey-sucking insects....





I have uploaded all these pictures with the faith that none of you would be asking me the names of these plants ;-) ;-) Too much of confidence ... Huh !!! ;-) ;-) ...!!

I am linking this post to the Green Thumb Decor party going on till April at Patty's blog.

  5. Beautiful pics, Em...I liked how you even managed to capture the dewdrops on the flowers!! The blue one is my favorite (on top). I too was thinking how lovely the ceramic kettle was, no wonder she didn't feel like throwing it even when it was cracked...would love to see the names of the flowers too next time you do a post like this!
