    Thank you all for your comments..I feel very happy reading them..They say it right -Happiness is doubled if you share it with others 🙂

    @Poonam ,lol,there is no such thing that can be called a garden..A small space,stuffed with pots and covers..

    @Mandira ,Yeah,thatz marigold.. Hmm,i know how sad it is when you don’t have an inch of soil or space..Earlier,my last home in another country,we were in a flat and I never did anything of this sort..

    @Pixie,i tried to plant Tulsi infinite times..I brought them in bunches from India every time we came from vacation..But none of them survived 😦 Tulsi has lot of medicinal values..I egt relief from cold when i drink tulsi-boiled water 🙂

    @Vishesh,Thanks for comeing 🙂 Even I am yet to reach out to all my friends in the circle..There is no time you know 😉

    @Indyeah-Try again and again and again until the plants get bored of defeating us and they will start blooming 🙂

    @Manju, yeah,i love gardening,especially vegetables.. My husband does the initial manual difficult jobs or gardening, and i am only into after-care 🙂

    @Dhiran..Sigh,how i wish to ahve a biiiiiiiiiig plot where i an grow lot off ruits and vegetables.One day when I have lot of money,I wil buy a vegetable farm 😉

    @Priyanka,hey hey,is that you -my old buddy from mumbai.Are you back from vacation?? How is Ashna??

        Take care..I cannot access your blog..When you comment on other wordpress blogs,for instance mine,do log out of your wordpress account and then only submit the comment.i,e,if you check now,you are logged into wordpress and hence your name is not linked to your blog URL..Log out,come back,submit a comment and see the difference 🙂

  7. Wow! Nimmy, they are really, really good. You also photographed them really well

    Keep Blogging!

  8. Not just a lovely garden, but also lovely pictures!!

    And I amazed and impressed…!!
    I can’t even grow a money plant!

  9. Wow…maintaining such a garden somewhere in the ‘gelf’ is worth applauding !!! Nice pictures too !!

    Btw, is that your finger in one of the pictures ??

    • Solilo
    • February 26th, 2009

    Amazing! You seem to be an awesome gardener Nims. Such variety!

    Flowers, veggies. Is that ‘cheera’ from Kerala to Swiss chard?

    • February 26th, 2009

    or* not to*

  11. Nice pictures Nimmy and yes a lovely effort on your part. I hope you plants don’t die in summer…do they have to? I mean you can try and grow some indoors.

  12. Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! 🙂

    Thank you all.. 🙂,I don’t have such cute soft little fingers..Those are my baby’s 🙂

    @Solilo,Cheera? Which one are you reffering to?

    @Reema,they are hyacinth,thatz how the nursery-walas told 🙂

    @Nita,lol..No dear,thatz not practical..Here,we expats live in minimal space and there is no question of plants intruding our small space 🙂 In fact,I am though of as living in luxury as i ahve some front area..Most of them here don’t even have that …Also,the heat is tooooooooo high that you can’t imagine,plants won’t grow unless we provide lot of infrastructure and like..

    Thank you Shail,Biju ,Dev and IHM 🙂

  13. Inspired by your garden, I bought some pots and some plants and decided to convert my terrace into something red, green and blue. I hope the other tenants in my building won’t mind since it’s a common terrace 🙂 Thank you!!

  14. Nice snaps… specially liked the 3rd and 8th one…

  15. you are maintaining a very nice garden Nimmy… also photographed well… the vegetable plants will die after their season… but I think the flower plants can be maintained by keeping enough chillness around… anyway keep gardening… that is the best hobby 🙂

  16. more than ur garden i like ur camera 😛 //
    which one did u use 😛 ??
