    You have captured the essence of the garden – the fresh blooms, leaves, dying plants preparing for the next season, and with the closeup images, I feel I am looking at them myself. Very nice.

  3. Love this – and your words shine as brightly as the photos. Thank you.

  4. Very poetic. A lovely mix with your pics.

      Thank you Michael. Poetry didn’t seem enough to express the beauty of a garden. I needed some visuals too and couldn’t resist the photos.

    Kalpana, this is beautiful. You cover so many aspects of what a garden can be to us. I love how you’ve weaved it into an enchanting story. Loved your poetic language. This is a truly beautiful entry!

    Thanks so much for joining us this month. The GARDENS theme has been embraced with such enthusiasm, not least by you.

    Denise 🙂

  6. A true work of magic and wonder, as is a garden. The photographs only add to your poetry. Thank you! This is an excellent entry for the WEP Garden Challenge. Your work continues to amaze and delight! Thank you!

    Ahhh! A garden. Nothing heals and refreshes like one. Thank you for this, Kalpana. Beautiful.

  8. Beautifully written Kalpanaa. I loved it entirely and picked up one that is the most imaginatively powerful one “A seemingly ordered world meets what appears to be untamed”. Awesome read and you took me through each moments, that I usually neglect while sitting on a garden.

  9. This is beautiful Kalpanaa. I so love plants but with my traveling I need an assistant who waters my plants in my absence. Coaxing Chhavi into it but I have only partial success!

    Beautiful shots there, Kalpanaa. And the various roles that a garden plays for our consciousness are nicely described in the poem. A post meant to delight!

    A garden is an alluring place especially if you are the gardener.

    A universe of connections indeed! The verse is a beautiful introduction to the gorgeous photographs. Truly a visual feast. I’m happy to meet you.

  13. Is it the lure of connections

    Between the I and the universe I live in

    That makes a garden so alluring?

    That sums it up perfectly! The photos are as lovely as the words. Great take on the prompt. Well-done!

    A beautiful expressive poem to what gardens are and what they mean to different people. I also like the connection of the garden to the universe. We often forget that.
    Very well done.

    Very true, the connection of outside and in, the garden can be a home where all from people to cats roam. Well captured indeed.

  16. This is lovely post. We are very lucky to have a garden in the backyard. Today we saw few baya weavers building their nests. That’s when we thought, we should visit the garden more often. Reading this post is a trigger for the thought 🙂

    so much beauty. I need to put together a garden in my yard.

  18. Sally says:

    This is lovely especially the the emotions and feelings that can be engendered by different parts of gardens from the smallest flowers to the largest trees. Love the photographs as well.

    Lovely post! Sorry to say my perennials haven’t bloomed too well this hot, dry summer. Be well!

    Hi Kalpanaa – so true … the garden is the interconnecting place between the wilds of nature and that place of human habitation the home … where the two collide or coincide. I love the poetic tone to the writing … very clever … with lovely photos – bougainvilea: I love! Cheers Hilary

  21. Simply beautiful…
