the past week

The past week has gone by so fast that it's been hard to keep up. When one is on vacation, time seems to take on a faster speed, don't you think! The days seem to just whizz by without even realizing. The weather has been beautiful, with warm sunny days, bordering on hot almost, and very pleasant cool nights, and the new leaves are shooting out everywhere, teeny tiny red peepul leaves (which I am yet to capture) along with a host of new leaves ranging from the freshest green to red, to brown to orange-y shades.

Munching on some cookies in the afternoon. Lately, my favorite afternoon munchies have been chips.

So lovely to have fresh flowers from the garden!

My spot in the study. Love to lounge here as the sun comes streaming in, winter and summer!

 I love finding these old trees that just are so huge that they extend in every direction. Also, one usually finds an interesting vendor or two underneath...a chaiwallah or mochi or someone selling bread pakoras!

Thank you! It's so wonderful to make a space feel like home with a rug, isn't it!

oh yes, that rug is gorgeous and you have composed the shots so beautifully. even though it seems that holiday time whizzes past, i love the delicious, almost languorous pace it takes. everyday, then, is a joy.

Woo, hoo, you're here too!

Thank you my dear for your lovely comment....I'm already counting down the days to the end of the vacation....and getting butterflies in my tummy! Will be nice to be back in my own space and with the hubby, but will miss all this.
