Yes that is how expensive tomatoes are! πŸ˜€

Hope you found something that you enjoyed – none of which are mine by the way. I received all of them as forwards/shares and am just keeping the fun going.

Have a super week and don’t forget to have some fun as well πŸ™‚

And do let me know your favorite – or better still post your own and leave me a link I will be along in just a bit.

WPC: Gratified and Delighted

Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog would know that I am rather partial to trees and that is putting it mildly πŸ˜€ My obsession is common knowledge among friends and family so whenever and wherever they go they never forget to share photos of trees. I feel blessed, overwhelmed and more than satisfied at their warm gesture and for taking time out in the midst of their work and pleasure trips. Here I share some photos from my collection of enchanting trees from near and far.

I hope you too will like them πŸ™‚

TallB

My friends sneaked off to the hills without telling me 😦 But then came the photos – what were you thinking BS? Tall and slim like these trees? In our next lives for sure πŸ˜‰

DecoB

We are more like this one – grounded and juggling a lot of pies πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ Cheers

CocoR

Now for some trees from Sri Lanka – thanks Ruma πŸ™‚ Coconut shells form a decorative earthen pot for the plant. But later it is completely absorbed into the earth.

UnrulyR

Then there’s this unruly wild child of the forest

MaskedR

The tree turns into a convenient display spot for attractive and fascinating masks

IMG-20170425-WA0011How could I forget these majestic beauties from Darjeeling and the unique angle – thank you Jyotsna πŸ™‚

ChristmasALet’s move on a bit farther to Germany. My cousin sent these stunning trees. Have a look

FallA

A veritable feast for the eyes

GermanyA

I just love this photo – don’t you?

LeavesA

Time for a change!

SwingA

My cousin found this mottled beauty along the road. Doesn’t it look as if she is leaning back on a push swing and any moment she is going to take off?

SnowSBlue blue skies and snow clad trees also from Germany shared by Svkuki πŸ™‚

MassivePThere’s this massive one from Dublin snapped by my sister while on an educational trip there.

HairyPA hairy one and quite unapologetic too!

TwoPIs that two trees or one? Oh what does it matter – there’s just one like you, muaahh

A huge thank you to all you lovely people for being so generous with your time and keeping me in your thoughts – do keep them flowing πŸ˜‰

Have a super week ahead πŸ™‚

WPC: True Blue

Yippee – after 9 months, Delhi finally delivered πŸ˜‰

A good air day in the first week of July! Not very great, just about satisfactory, which will do for now because along with it came blue skies and big white clouds. It has been ages since I have seen a blue blue sky in Delhi and I have been walking with my head in the clouds ever since πŸ˜€

I thought pictures of a smog free Delhi sky would be just perfect for the Weekly Photo Challenge – Unusual.

Hope you like!

BlueGreen, white and blue – a sight for sore eyes don’t you think?

Sky copyRain is imminent – the clouds gear grey up πŸ˜‰

IMG-20170721-WA0012They came in other designs too!

Sunny sideJust the way I like it – sunny side up πŸ˜€

20170724_174700Quite perfectly framed – what do you say?

EveSnapped a quick pic on the way home – on the left

Duskand on the right. I got a crick in my neck gawking at the sky. And a good thing too for I caught someone staring at me…

MonkeyAny guesses who that is? πŸ˜€

Thanks for visiting, have a super week ahead πŸ™‚

Just 4 Fun # 47

Hello! What’s up people? Can you hear me? It’s pouring cats and dogs and I can barely hear myself think over din. Anyway talking of cats…

Baby catπŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Mama cat does have a point πŸ˜‰

SpidermanAnd if you are smart, you’ll take a hint from Spiderman’s predicament. Better to spend ones time more productively like this artist

3d painting

Who created a 3-D painting – amazing isn’t it? Moving on…

Q algo

So, did you ask your question? πŸ˜‰

CutePerhaps I have shared this before but one with which I thoroughly concur πŸ˜‰ Besides there are bigger problems and woes especially for us living in Delhi…

IMG-20170723-WA0034

πŸ˜€ tomato prices have sky rocketed! What’s the price like at your place?

But I saved my favorite for the last – one that effectively depicts the great Indian jugaad. πŸ˜€

Jugaad

For every problem, there is a solution πŸ˜€

Hope you found something that you enjoyed – none of which are mine by the way. I received all of them as forwards/shares and am just keeping the fun going.

Have a super week and don’t forget to have some fun as well πŸ™‚

The Sneaky Ways of Fate

The Sneaky Ways of Fate

Words 102

The train chugged out of the station. He tried to the quell butterflies in his stomach, an alien city, an unfamiliar language. Jobless in Kolkata, fate had offered him a job in Delhi he had grabbed it.

In another part of the country, hectic preparations were on to send her to college.

Tonight, they would take the train to Agra.

Fate blinked. Oops! Her destiny was in Delhi.

β€œA telegram,” father said, β€œconfirming admission in a Delhi college.”

Fate sighed. Her job was done.

Same city.

Same campus.

Time would lead them to Room 4027.

Biology and chemistry would do the rest.
