Hardly three weeks ago Stockholm was dumped with heaps of snow. Thankfully that slowly melted and then came Spring! These are the first flowers I saw sprouting up along the sidewalks. Lucky for me, these purple blossoms fit right into today’s prompt up at The Daily Post. Have a lovely week ahead!
Close up, into the heart of a flower…
Check out older entries to the Weekly Photo Challenge & let me know what you think.
P.S. I used this photo for a previous post, but it was so apt for this challenge, I couldn’t resist posting it again. Do you also see the cheetah’s face with outspread bat wings at the heart of this orchid? Some pics are special, right?
2014 has been a super year for Sunny District. It’s been fun & happening. I’ve been able to share some excellent experiences, travelling stories and cool experiments. Here’s a quick round-up of some of my most popular posts from the previous year, in no particular order. And along with it comes a big thank you & lots of hugs for my readers!
I was lucky to travel to many awesome places like Kiruna, Mallorca, Copenhagen, Athens, Santorini, Madrid, Lisbon & Porto. Although I haven’t had a chance to share my accounts of all these lovely places, but you can click on the links to read about the ones I have. I guess you liked this recent bright mash-up most of all.
Thank you once again, dear readers, 2014 has been so awesome, I am raring to go for 2015!!
I have been trying my hand at growing my own herbs recently, and hence been reading a lot of blogs to gather tips on how to do it right. I’ve had some luck though there is still a long way to go before I can boast about any of it 😉 A surprising tip I read was about growing spring onions or chives…some bloggers/ gardeners shared their experience of how simply placing the cut root-ends into a jar of water would make them grow again. Nothing can be that easy, right? So I tried it myself, straight from the refrigerator and into an empty salsa jar. I was ready to say tchahh! but look here what I got! New leaves started to show within a day of placing the roots in water. I am elated to say the least. If only everything in this world were as simple as growing chives!
