Welcome 2009 !

Here's hoping 2009 brings with it peace and happiness, all the good things of life, great health, fantastic company, good fortune and great climate!

Here's hoping that your garden is brimming over with beautiful blooms and tasty veggies. And also that it attracts all the butterflies in the land but the caterpillars choose to nibble elsewhere !

And here's wishing that in the future, all of us will look back on this year and say, " I hope the new year will be like 2009 !"

Happy New Year, my friends!

  20. Have a mega 2009, Sunita!
    Hope you will have many exiciting birds and butterflies in your yard and get jaw-dropping pictures of them this year. Hope those dragonflies will also oblige.

    Those are very pretty blooms to welcome the new year.

  21. Hey, Amila, good to see you here in the new year. Yeah, I really hope the dragonflies will sit still for me this year. And the birds ... and the butterflies. Pity that when they do choose to sit , it is so far away that my point-and-shoot just about manages to capture a blur of colour. The birds really are more colourful on the other side of the fence!
    Here's hoping you are lucky enough to get all those lovely photos that you've dreamt about. Happy New Year!

  25. Thank you , Kanak. Glad you're back and busy blogging again.
    The first photo is of an orchid, a Dendrobium crumenatum, which blooms whenever there's a fluctuation in temperature. The flowers are very short-lived but so fragrant that its amazing!
    The second photo is of a variegated lantana. Very commonly seen but I dont think anyone really notices each individual flower. Quite striking, dont you think?

  26. A blessed and joyful New Year is wished for you too, dear Sunita!
    I've so much enjoyed catching up on your recent posts (and will try to visit more often to stay caught up)...the sun, sky, birds, blooms and bees and butterflies...and your photos...all wonderful! And fascinating to see such different varieties of flora and fauna to ours.
