Feast for Thought

Not pontificating. Only trying to bat on the side of the environment. And ethics. And simple living. And slowing down. (And trying to learn and practise before preaching or teaching...)

Delhi's Garden Tourism Festival




I have always felt that Delhi looks drab in winter, the leaves in the trees looking grey and blending with the lifeless concrete around. However you can discover pockets of plant life in Lutyen's Delhi and within parks and well-maintained campuses.
The Garden of Five Senses is a park that you can escape into, bang in the middle of the city, near the Qutub Minar.
We were lucky to catch glimpses of the Garden Tourism Festival (3rd weekend of Feb every year).
Any idea of the names of the flowers above?
