are there trees outside your windows?

Living in an apartment, that too in a high rise, I often find myself dreaming of seeing trees right out side my window, of hearing the rain (ha, what rain!) falling on the leaves and making noise. But what to do, I live in a high rise, that too on the 16th floor, too high to have trees right outside my window, so instead I find inspiration and store them to be used later on. Things like pergolas, window boxes, and maybe even an octagon gazebo! I'd love to have a garden with a bit of mystery in it, as in something that's hidden from view, enticing you to take a step further, around the corner, maybe a nice bench in a secluded corner for some quiet reading. One day!

I could swap places with you. I live on the 4th floor. Its like living on a treetop. Last month gulmohar trees were blossming. I loved the view. But then the view is restricted. I can see only as far as the nearest tree or building. I'd love to live on the higher floor. In fact we've booked a house on the 23rd floor of an under construction. I hope to be able to see the Creek, shimmering lights of the highway and the local trains and get a bigger piece of sky to myself. We even have a balcony. Alas! its 4 years away...

hello, hello....long time no see!

The grass on the other side always looks greener doesn't it! I'd rather have a restricted view with trees rather than no trees at all. But that's probably due to living in the desert too long.
