The last photo should've been first! My younger son Nishant, turned 14 today! We were at Greenwood, a beautifully kept property in the outskirts of the city. Nishant and his friends played football, cricket and went boating. The skies did not let them down! The place is very well-maintained and the plant collection, extensive! These are some of the plants in Greenwood. Enjoy! Happy Birthday! Fourteen. Wow!
That's him, on the left. Loves music, plays the drums and the guitar. Also LOVES to eat!!!
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
The first flowering shrub I planted on our land
Every flower is a soul blooming in Nature.-Gerard De Nerval
Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself? -Henry David Thoreau
