B for bird kingdom

Summer is the time here when we can venture out and most of the attractions open during summer only. So every year I make it a point that we see three to four places during summer. This year we went to bird kingdom.

It’s an indoor place where birds are not caged but can fly. There are trees, plants and water bodies inside the building. It’s a sort of forest themed place for birds. They are many varieties of birds and the bird breeding is also done here.

Here we can have close encounter with birds.

A for apple

20160719_205734Before getting married you tend to buy only for yourself. After marriage you tend to buy for your spouse and once kids come they take over your other priorities. Take for instance a computer or a lap top. Once kids started using your laptop you hardly get it. Your smart phone is taken over by younger kid. Kids use your phone and laptop only when your are free cause when you are doing household work they are busy doing home work. Since a while wanted to buy something exclusive for myself but postponed it cause has to buy tablets for school for both the kids. Last week got a voucher from work and brought Apple iPad Air 2. Used iPhone before and not much fan of Apple products. Now I have to start loving my iPad because this is exclusive for ME. Kids too appreciate that mom got iPad only for her. No game downloads, no English music and no kids drawings. Brought this mainly as I wanted to come back to blogging…take time to read all my favourite blogs and also spend less time on FB.

Copied the idea of alphabet post from dhiren. May not be doing 26 letters for 26 days but will try to post often.




I grew up in house where there was lot of greenery around the house. I just love the smell of wet soil after a down pour. And when you brush against a tree the little droplets touches your skin..and the walk in the wet grass with bare foot…watering the plants…taking out the weeds…..plucking guava..rubbing against your dress..not caring to wash it and eat it. In spite of trying to save a plant, the plant dies and it breaks your heart…Then start hunting for a sampling. Peek at neighbours garden and look for it at a friends place. I never cut flowers from the plant,there are beautiful on the plant not in our living rooms.Wish i had taken pictures of plants and trees then.

After getting married never had a chance to live in a house.It’s always apartment buildings, there too tried to have some plants in the pots. Didn’t had many. Due to water scarcity in Hyderabad few of plants died. Then i didn’t had much because of water scarcity in Hyderabad is at peak during summers and scarcity still there most of the year.

Then relocated to Canada. Here too lived in a apartment buildings had few indoor plants. Here at the start of spring all groceries stores sell samplings.Brought few and planted them in my back yard. Now i moved to my dream home with a backyard and front yard. I just love the time i spend in the evening to water my small garden. Have to enjoy this weather only for few more months and then the snow🙂
