Greens are Gone, Save the Blues.
Well that is the theme of summer holiday homework for my son. I am shocked…I mean really!! Have we already given up & concluded that the greens are gone.I am jolted to do some introspection .Isn’t it my social responsibility to do my bit for planet earth even though it may be very small. At least we city dwellers can grow herb gardens in our balconies & terraces and must encourage others to do so.The more the number of people, the greater will be the change .There is no magic wand for any problem but we have to put efforts to bring change.
I was a loner in this green journey until I met passionate gardeners who shared similar views & motivated me. Today I am possessed with the idea of going green & turning every available space into a green spot…haven’t we created enough hotspots to remain connected in a technology driven world 🙂 Let’s create green spots now for our own existence.
My humble beginning in terrace gardening 🙂 Mostly I am using thermacol boxes, gunny & plastic bags, containers, cold drink bottles etc to create my terrace garden. I shamelessly pick them from anywhere to the curious amazement of onlookers…I beg,I borrow but I never stop.
My first love indeed…I had sleepless nights worrying about it’s growth & surviving the big bad world (harsh Delhi weather & the maniac monkeys) Look at the way it is boasting it’s presence as if saying “I am the King!”
Aha! The princely gourd is trying to work it’s charm 🙂
The fresh mint inspires me every day…don’t fear being crushed rather spread your fragrance!!
Every plant has a story, each one a HERO teaching me some precious lessons of life…
They grow with zest & gift me the greens, they are my companion in solitude, I sing & hum…I am a free spirit in midst of them.
They die but I don’t cry coz they embark on a new journey as they go into the compost bin to come out as gold for my new greens…Cheers!! 🙂
