The Festival Of Lights


We're celebrating Diwali, the Festival of Lights, in India. I'd
like to take this opportunity to send every Blotanist my regards
and my good wishes.

Ever since I joined Blotanical, so many lives have touched mine.
It may have been just a few words or paragraphs, a photo, or loads
of them! For each and every connection that was made,and will be
made, I am thankful.

In a short span of time, I've had the chance to learn so many aspects
of gardening, visit the most amazing gardens, meet wonderful
people, drool over the prettiest blooms and insects and skyscapes...
admire the changes that the seasons bring, FEEL the sense of joy or
or sadness.I couldn't have asked for more!

As I light my earthen lamps and my candles, my thoughts are with
you ... Wish you all peace and happiness...in this Festival of
Lights!

Hi, I just floated over from Tina's "In the Garden"blog. I love the idea of the lights. So much meaning. We should all pay more attention to the world around us. We could learn so much from nature.

Thank you for your good wishes, and I wish the same in return for you.

Hi Kanak, happy Diwali! Thanks to you too for your many visits, encouraging words, thoughtful comments, and fascinating posts! It's so wonderful to feel connected to people so far away, makes the world seem like a smaller, better place.

What a wonderful celebration! I can feel the warmth of your candles all the way over here Kanak. Thank you for your sweet wishes and thoughts.

I've enjoyed every bit as much of your blog. I have seen flowers, insects/birds and trees that I will never see over here. I am so grateful that technology has enabled us all to visit places we may never physically see.

Happy Diwali to you. May your light continue to shine. In Texas, We are bringing out our candles this weekend too, for Day of (honoring)the Dead.

Beautiful lights, a festivity that seems so much more appealing than Halloween over here.
Best wishes from England,
