Flowers of My Garden …

It is certainly a very interesting phase in our lives for sure. Movements restricted and forced to spend days on end at home. When the Covid scare emerged and lock down was imposed, I took it as an opportunity at first to spend more time for my long forgotten hobbies.

But, as the lock downs were extended, I started feeling restless and the only option to escape from boredom was to spend more time in our garden and farm.

Identified some different themes each day and started capturing photos of the macro world around and flowers.

One day, I shot all different types of flowers and found that there were 50+ different ones 🙂

I have created a couple of collages and please find it here 🙂

    1. I am sure, you would love to capture each and every one of these beauties, Dear Hien 🙂

      I feel, one positive thing about this Pandemic phase is, at least a small percentage of people are getting closer to nature, through farming, gardening etc;

      Hope, we could expect a better world once we survive this tough time 🙂

      Thank you so much for your time and kind words 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your time and appreciative words, Takami 🙂

      Yes, it’s indeed a very interesting time and I feel, it’s nut just about surviving this phase, but come out as an even better human being and a better society.

      As always, whenever I felt that I am low on inspiration and support I turn to this great forum and get recharged.

      Thanks a gain for your support for all these years and hope you and your near ones are all doing good 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Cornelia 🙂

      Mental health is something of great concern during these Covid times and even some of my friends had to take professional help.

      It is always great spending time close to nature and if I could capture some nice images I feel so happy and content …

      I could guess, how rewarding it could be when people smile and appreciate your beautiful wedding images with a human touch stamped on them…

      I also like photographing people but now a days I have to be happy with photographing flowers and butterflies 🙂

      1. Sreejith, thank you so much for your wonderful and very kind reply. You know when I photograph flowers it’s similar to me than photographing people, because I photograph souls and flowers have souls as people. One might say that it is easier, but in fact photographing flowers in nature, there is a always a little wind bending the flowers in different directions, the light changes constantly. Enjoy your subject in front of your lens. Stay safe and healthy.

        1. I could feel that in your photos and that really make them special.

          I regret not spending enough time learning photography seriously.

          It is indeed one of my resolutions and hope I will be able to capture even better images 🙂

          Have a beautiful day 🙂

        2. Sreejith, it is never too late to learn more about photography… my advice is always… go out and photograph with your heart as much as possible… study your work by making many mistakes that’s THE WAY to learn. Enjoy what you are doing with your full heart.

    1. Unlike the northern latitudes, the seasonal changes in color of vegetation is minimal here in Kerala.

      But, we have been blessed with quite a number of exotic flowers and plants, with most of them associated with some interesting story from our epics and myths.

      Spending time in garden and trying to grow vegetables are something which I tried only this year. All because of Corona 🙂

      Thank you so much for your time and sharing your thoughts 🙂

      1. There sure have been some silver linings to covid.. The skies are clear..there has been time to reflect and ponder, to watch the sun’s path across my small garden and notice how much or how little sun parts of my garden receive.
        Thanks 😊

  1. O Sreejith, these are such pretty flowers and definitely this lockdown has provided us the opportunity to spend more time to engage in our favourite hobby and see how beautiful and flowerful the outcome is. 🙂 Totally loved all your lovely blooms. 🙂

    1. Absolutely …

      One of the virtues of lock down was we were forced to slow down the pace of life and appreciate nature.

      There are many a points to take forward from this phase I believe 🙂

      It’s really important to make ourselves break free from the shackles of the negativity connected to Covid.

      1. Couldn’t agree more, we are all in this together, a little positivity goes a long way.
        And what better way to feel good than to turn off those tv sets and news blogs for a bit and just step out of the house and be one with nature – a chirping bird, a fallen leaf, a blooming flower – they are all food for the tired soul. 🙂
        And by sharing them on your blog, you are providing a feast for other tired souls across the globe too 😀
