What inspires me to blog? For me, it works both ways – Blogging inspires me to discover the old and the new . Travel, nature and most of all experimenting with my writing and photography inspires me to blog!

Sue from A word in your ear has ‘ A word a week’ challenge. The word this week is ‘flower’.
In India, not only are flowers appreciated but also venerated to a great extent . Besides being used for decoration and offered as a symbol of love and friendship, flowers also have a spiritual significance in Hinduism. They are used to worship Gods at home and in temples not only on religious occasions but also for the everyday puja. Women adorn them in ther hair- some wear them on special occassions like a wedding or a puja and some women , specially in the South, wear flowers in their hair every Friday as it is considered an auspicious day.
My favourite flowers are the Frangipani and Jasmine for their divine fragrance and Geraniums and Hibiscus are they are fairly easy to grow 🙂
