Morning Magic

.
.
Bottle brushes are in full bloom. They look like the tear of every Weeping Willow branch ended in a flower. It’s a gorgeous sight.

At a distance, hills fade away into gentle shades of lilac tinged with the orange of a Sun that is still mustering its strength to rise.

Bird call fills the air, lilting, musical, ethereal… They flit from branch to branch with joyous energy.

Such a perfect world has been created, and it’s never more evident than in the the early morning hours… In the hills 😊🐦☀️☕

A Memory…🌼

A memory from the past

Of mountains,

Of homes

nestled amongst rocks…

And a temple,

Always a little red temple,

At a distance 😊

Water roads and Lilly embankments! 

When taking a ride on a shikara in the backwaters of the Dal lake, the parting between the Lilly pads become roads for navigation! At a certain point a right turn takes you to a floating market, another one to the main lake, yet another to a housing colony of homes on stilts. . 

I am told that when the Lillies and Lotus bloom, sometime in June, these backwaters are a sight to behold! Imagine water roads and Lilly embankments! Truly magical! .

The Mighty Road

‘The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And wither then? I cannot say..’

Stunning Kalpa!

 
Kalpa in Kinnaur is one of the most beautiful places in Himachal Pradesh. It is home to apple orchards and peach trees, that create a heavenly atmosphere. A hundred kilometres further up the mountains and one leaves all this lush greenery behind to reach the unforgiving, barren mountains of Spiti.

At every turn nature fascinates with its variations in flora and fauna!
