Flowers for you


The Sun is finally shining bright and keeping us warm and cheerful.

The flower clock is bursting with colours and 
the jet d'eau peeks from the back as the tourists take turns to pose in front.

The Geneva lake front has been beautifully tended to and 
every little corner filled in with colour.

The little red train goes around town and 
every once in a while you hear its bells ring!


These ladies are soaking up the sun at the lac Léman, just as everyone else.


..with my moleskin and the camera...
 to spend all day on lush green garden lawns was fun!


A friend brought us the most beautiful lilacs from his garden
..their perfume still lingering in the apartment...

This one is for you, my lovely, thoughtful readers 
who took time out to leave me notes as I was doing the html for the blog.
Enjoy the brilliance of spring!
Love.

My mum has black & white photos taken of when she lived in India (think they were when my parents were newly married)and the photo reminded me of those.

Hi Dithi,
This is my first comment on your blog. Your paintings and blogs are really nice. I live in USA and I know how we feel as an immigrants. The attatchment with the motherland and anything to do with it is very stong for lot of us. I didn't know anything about blogs and only 3 months back I was introduced to the beautiful world of blogging. Whenever I feel alone , I just check the blogs and I feel much better. I have a request for you. I collect interior design and art books about india and in one of the pictures I could see that you also have wonderful collection of books. Can you please share the list of books you have, so that if I am missing anything I can buy that too. Again thank you for your time.

I am loving the warm fuzzy feeling that candles impart.
The collection of books, the flowers, candles and those lovely paintings are just amazing:-)
