Flowers... any takers?

Flowers from my Garden...


I didn't toil for it (gardening is my MIL's hobby) nevertheless the very sight of them gives me joy, a sense of satisfaction. How many of us - girls like flowers? most of us would be the answer. those of us who say NO, can have their point.

































But why do you like flowers? if someone had to ask, im clueless and how many of you receive flowers from our boy friends, would be's and hubby's.. the number is dismal. So that is why i dried the first rose that i got from my Hubby when he was my fiance, and also framed it and gave it as a gift for our first wedding anniversary.
Hoping to get more such ones.

Im Tagged Again!!! By Jollyroger of course, coz nobody ever reads my blog.

Rules of this Tag: Pick up the nearest book.Open to page 123.Find the fifth sentence.Post the next three sentences.Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

And since we live in the same house the Tamilnadu guide map is the only book within reach!? So i'm typing from 'One Minute Wisdom' by Anthony De Mello which I just finished reading. This book contains short stories as told by a Hindu Guru, a zen Roshi, a Taoist Sage, a Jewish Rabbi, a Christian Monk, a Sufi Mystic, A Lao Tzu, Socrates, Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed - to be read one by one everyday and meditate upon. For a difference i'd like to deviate from the rule to open page no.123 by changing the no. to 132 (as its too abstract on page 123)

"One of the disconcerting -- and delightful -- teachings of the Master was: God is closer to sinners than to saints.

This is how he explained it: God on heaven holds each person by a string. When you sin you cut the string. Then God ties it up again, making a knot -- and thereby bringing you a little closer to him. Again and again your sins cut the string -- and with each further knot God keeps drawing you closer and closer." End of story.

While the story goes like this... Just bcoz there is bandaid available you do not cut yourself now and then, do you?

And i tag Sheila, Honey Bee, Chriz, Anju and Cassius
