Starting a garden..

Starting a garden..

Catrin Welz-Stein

Time was nigh as far

as her plan of starting a

garden was concerned

 

She didn’t deviate from

her plan one bit despite the

proffer of a team

 

She made sure to clam

up the others saying that

it was in her mind

 

Once the idea

germinated in her brain,

they met as agreed

Starting a garden..

What began by planning the garden’s design,

moved on to the selection of the plants based on the soil type,

They were then gently placed next to each other,

labelled correctly and watered in the right amounts,

And voila, that’s how he started gardening.

She kept biting her fingernails as she

sat under the pergola outside in

the garden wondering if she had done

enough to ascertain herself in front

of the high and mighty so that she could

carve her identity in sands of time.

Photography: Boston Public Garden

Wordless Wednesday: Boston Public Garden

When I visited Boston during my first visit to USA last October, I was completely in love with the city. While I got to spend only one night there, I really loved whatever the city had to offer. The Boston Public Garden in the center of the city is the perfect place to lose yourself amidst all the greenery. There are benches at different places and the tall thick trees provide a cover fr0m the sun as well.

100 word fiction: Nostalgia

“After days of rain, it’s a delight to see the sun shining in all its glory. It would have been beautiful if we had our children with us today.” Gloria couldn’t help but remember the days gone by.

The Robinson’s always made it a point to spend their weekends in their garden. While the children played on the rides, the parents discussed about everything under the sun. It was a lovely way for the family to bond together.

Once the children left for university and then got jobs, the times spent in the garden became nothing but a distant memory.

“We need to put an urgent stop to this. It’s not right for us to go on as our kids aren’t happy.”

While one was going through a painful divorce, the other had lost his partner to a painful death due to cancer. Both longed for unconditional love and care. What started off as a chance meeting in the court moved on to regular walks in the garden hand in hand all day. They discussed their happiness, their sadness, their dreams and more.

But as soon as their kids found out their story, their dream world was shattered to pieces.

Dubai Diaries – A trip to the Miracle Garden

Spread over 72000 sq m and with over 45 million flowers, Miracle Garden is the world’s largest natural flower garden. In a country where temperatures can easily cross 50 degrees in the summer, this is quite a spectacular achievement which points to the vision of the authorities to create varied tourist experiences for the avid traveler.

The garden is open for visitors from October to April and closed thereafter as the peak summer starts. There are flowers covering trains, the Eiffel tower, a clock, peacocks, cars, village houses, Burj Khalifa and more. For those who are interested, a butterfly garden has also opened its doors next to the Miracle Garden.

The way the flowers have been arranged shows the amount of effort which would have gone in ensuring that tourist have a lovely time. It’s an amazing place to take in the fresh air and relax.

100 word story – The Golden Flowers

Flowers with Ice

Flowers with Ice

PHOTO PROMPT – Copyright Janet Webb

She had met him for the first time when he was in his garden. He loved nurturing his plants with utmost care and concern as if they were his children. She always saw him spend a couple of hours each day watering and tending to them. That garden was where they spoke sweet-nothings, laughed, cried, argued, made-up and lived a life over a couple of years. As she sat by the window reminiscing the times they had spent, her eyes wandered to the plant which they had planted together. Its flowers had turned golden and were now covered with ice.
