Come away with me ... to the phoolwalla's of Gurgaon and Delhi ... :)

 Seriously, ;) aren't you thinking wooooooooooooo ... look at all those beauties ... I could take home all of them ... I can't even begin to imagine the crazy fun I'd have if someone gave me a whole flower stand full of flowers ... :) ...

 If you are from the Delhi -Gurgaon area then I am pretty sure you know what I am so bowled over by ... not in another city have I seen ( o.k  ... so there are not very many cities on my ... have seen them list ... but what the hell) ... the number of phoolwallas  (flower vendors) ... they are in everynook and corner and looooooaaaaded ...

 ... this time of the year ... the wintery time I mean ... these cutest miniature daffodils arrive ... can't say I am a great fan of their fragrance ... but they are very tempting ... ( I just had to get a bunch) ...;) ...

 ... when I'm feeling blue ... brain dead ... running away from mundane domestic responsibilities ... looking to be inspired ... I go looking for my fav. phoolwalla ... :)

 ... great place to see what flower goes well with which one ... I have already done my arrangement mentally before I leave with my flowers ...

 ... And one of my fav. things to do is look for all the different flowers of the same color for my fav. tone on tone effect ... white is but always a favoured pick ... blush and pink ... coming in close...





... flowers always inspire me ... give me that feeling of  'ALL IS WELL' ... and I don't know why  ... but bring them home and there's something special feeling instantly ... out here in my city no matter the season ... its flowers all year round ...
Do they work the same magic on you ... or do they leave you clueless ... :) ... would love to hear your side of the story ... :)

That's what I always feel too about flowers-All is Well..!! They give me such a sense of comfort and positivity that everything around seems beautiful.. Loved the white ones in the white vase. White looks so serene and magical-my all time favorite.
Thanks for shining up my day.
