Photo Talk And Flowers



Hello  Beautiful  People 

Hope  Feeling  good despite of  all the obstacles because  goodness is what faith  brings to your heart no matter what :) Faith in yourself and faith in one who created you with promise that  he  will love you unconditionally throughout  your life .

I  think  faith  is " soul"  of  structure of  our living.Without  it  we can fill  it  with   stuff  but  no light  of peace  will be there for us end of the day .
Spring  is  around  the corner  and  have  begun to  smile  in  my  yard  either .Lord   is  most  powerful  and  most  glorious  energy  of    this  universe and beyond  this universe indeed.We  ,including  everything  existing  are  part  of  his  energy .Whatever  shape  we  have  taken  reveals  some of His  characteristic  indeed .And  flowers  are  one  of the  most  pretty  of   it ! 
Everything  speaks  to me about  Him  though  but  blooms  convey  me  His   Sweetness  and  delight .I feel   as  Lord  is  smiling  upon  us  whenever  i  look  at  the  flowers :)
So I  am  sharing  some  photos today hope  you  receive  some  more  goodness from   His  Grace :)


  i  rarely  want  yellow  around  me  but  when  it  comes  to  flowers  it  proves  most  pretty  and joyous ,don't you agree :)


 orange  color  is calmer  and  engaging than   yellow one   sometimes ,it reminds oranges instantly lol
tiger  rose  looks happy  to  survive heat  here  as  i can see he  has  started  to grow  many  blooms  at a time ,we had  to wait two  springs  for  it's  persistence and thrive 


okay  my knowledge  about the flowers ends soon  and here ,so enjoy the new little  beauty in my yard for the first time ,guesses  are warmly well come though 

first time in yard this one too ,this is astonishing  and mesmerizing  how Creator  combines these   cheerful  colors in most beautiful way ,Nature  is DIVINE guide  and  i wish we don't  stop  learning from  it  to make our life balanced  and peaceful 

my younger  son  captured  this  during  sunlight time right before  leaving for tuition center ,i  asked him to overshadow  the plant for better  result  as he returns in late evening  since he goes to gym  from there .his phone takes better images than mine 

this  on is my favorite among new entries ,such soothing  and pleasant to look at  

                                                
this one is taken when we visited  his younger brother who lives in  house  provided by government  since  few years ,it was our first visit  to them in new residence ,i liked the small lawn there 

on Sunday  hubby  offered me  motorbike trip to Sukkur  city which is 25 km away from our city ,we left for it 2:40 afternoon  after having lunch with  kids who  are no longer interested in joining  us and feel happier while playing on screens or watching videos ,there exams are close (in May) so they study as well (hopefully) i took three photos when we reached  in Sukkur park that's name i could not find ..we did not go inside  as it was  sun was tough  and we were in hurry as after bit wander we wanted to go market for shopping as wedding of one of my sister in laws' only son is approaching (in March)

Pakistan's second largest flag was planted in this park (300 ft high) ,i captured it to save in memories


few  people were siting and some were wandering despite of sun which is good because weather takes dramatic turn in first week of May  here and heat attacks abruptly to blow our mind ,sun does not seem the we looked at few weeks ago smilingly (though i still dare to try it :)

Hubby drove to the old bridges of British era which i find fascinating always ,bridges  make people ans sides meet and this is why i feel positive energy coming from them  :) sky and water both were serene there  except sound of occasional vehicle passing by on road  behind us   


famous scissor bridge of Sukkur ,we could go there as hubby offered but when i did time calculation we could have be late if did so ,so after spending some time on river bank and little walk in park there we returned to the city market , breeze   was pleasant crispy and i liked it so much .

 

i know hat is horribly blurred ,i did not notice it will look that bad when enlarge ,but i wanted to share this tea set that we bought from Market ,it is nicer than it looks here i mean if it does appear ,on left are older  four cups with hubby's framed photo , it was  tough to hold it while riding motor bike but we reached safely and without falling it on the way (by the grace of Lord)

That  is for now dear friends ,now when days are extending i wish to post more ,see if i can .

Keep being  kind to yourself and all around you ,stay ,safe ,healthy and happy and yes Positive always!
God Bless You All!

    1. your words are sweet and uplifting dear Laurie

      i never bought a tea set before will you believe it ,when i got married mom gifted me what she had in her huge box ,she was not in position to buy me new crockery sets a including tea set
      it was my wish to have one but fine one not ordinary so i kept delaying as here tea mugs were more popular even for presenting before guests so i thought i will buy one when it will speak to me when i will look at it but i could not find one that existed in my mind ,not in Islamabad nor in Karachi so when that day we went to shop for wedding upcoming i bought it inevitably ,it is not of finest quality but is okay and it is fine now

  2. Hi Baili - Nice pictures as always. I think that I like flowers of every color imaginable . we do not have flowers popping up here as we have about half a meter of snow on the ground :)

    I can tell that is a very nice tea set.

    Have a great week!

  3. Your garden blooms have such beautiful smiling faces. What a great ride on the motorcycle. It must be refreshing to have the wind on your face. You were brave to carry the tea set back home whilst riding too. Glad it survived the trip. I hope you enjoy many cups of tea from that set and it will bring you smiles as you remember its journey.

    1. unlike you i have not privilege to ride bicycle here dear Marie and it is one my biggest wish i could do so ,i don't know if i will be able to fulfill my wish in remaining life ,so i try to take advantage of every single opportunity i find for motorbike ride ,it makes me feel better lot better than car ride or van ride (hope it is not embarrassing to feel this way in this part of age as fifty is considered old specially for ladies here )

      hubby used to take all of us on motorbike ride when kids were little but now they are grown and can't fit at once on it ,neither they like to accompany us in our family visits or journeys like this so we enjoy such trips specially me and hubby try to take me often thankfully
      yes it was challenging to hold tea set while riding on motorbike though road was great thankfully ,hubby asked me many times to be assure if i can do this and i said yes so we bought it we could have postpone it but you know sometimes we enjoy small adventurers that include harmless risks :)
      what a coincidence that hubby had friends as guest today and my tea set served for the first time :)

    1. Dear Debra hubby borrowed it from his office (college) since his collage has huge lawn and three gardeners to look after it .they export lots of new seasonal plants in spring. Hubby borrow if it is not available in local nursery though he gives small share of money if plants are new many .some of them cannot go through extreme heat but some survive after hard struggle like this one :)

  8. My goodness Baili, you really get out and about on that motorbike! I can't imagine carrying a dinner set home on a bike! very tricky - you did well to get it home undamaged. I have just bought a dinner set with some vouchers I save through our supermarket but we won't use them unless we have visitors/special occasions. Your flowers are so lovely, some look like snap dragons to me but whatever they are, it's lovely to see all that colour - it's very grey here, no flowers in the garden and we have snow. Take care - Betty x

    1. not dinner set dear Betty ,it would be bigger and hard to handle during motorbike ride ,we have bought dinner set almost year ago i think ,i have shared images when it was packed and my cabinets had not enough space for it ,though we renovated kitchen and now it is safe in kitchen
      i so enjoyed the touch of fear and care that i felt while holding tea set during riding motorbike lol
      it was challenging yet amusing experience ,it went good by the grace of God :)

    The flag pole is very tall, so the flag can wave powerfully.

  16. I enjoyed this post, Baili! Your flowers are lovely, and that tiger rose is gorgeous. I've never seen one like it before. I'm glad that you had a chance to get out on the motorbike to Sukkur. I'd be terrified to ride on a motorbike ~ You are much braver than I am! Your boys sound so normal, LOL. Kids certainly do love their phones, screens, and videos. Not that I should talk! Have a great week, my friend! Hugs to you!

    1. i wonder from where has this tiger rose has come to in my country as all of you are seeing it for the first time ?

      may be eastern part of land like Japan or China ,can't be certain about it

      hm...brave ,no may be ,but yes when it comes to follow my heart once i am certain my wish is harmless to anyone ,i do it mindlessly lol

      yes this is surprising how fondness changes with age ,life is playing before my eyes like reel ,i am seeing how i must have changed in many manners slowly and unknowingly with time :)

  17. Your posts always make me smile, Baili! And I really enjoy when you share photos. That tiger rose is gorgeous. I've never seen that before!

  18. Your flowers are wonderful, Baili, and certainly cheered me on a cold winter's day. We are getting more snow over the next 2 days and there will be no spring blooms for some time yet. The yellow and orange blooms (marigolds?) and especially that tiger rose were beautiful! How nice that you and your husband took a motorbike trip together and that you were able to bring home that lovely tea set with no breakage, a great balancing act on your part.

  21. Baili your flowers from your garden are beautiful. Since it is winter here and my garden is under several inches of snow (and more on the way)...it is a delight to visit your lovely countryside. Hubby and I ride a motorcycle also when the weather is fit. Take care dear one. God bless!

    1. i love snowfall but occasional one dear Debbie ,it seems hard to face long lasting harsh winters to me ,yet i know where ever we born and grow we learn to not just survive but love our weathers as here after long resentment with local extreme summers (30 years) i have started to realize how i like summers that help me to think better unlike winters that seems to jam my brain lol

      this is nice you too like motorcycle ride :)

  22. Hi Dear Baili, It is a pleasure to be related to you through our souls. His grace created all of us and we are all related. I enjoyed all your photos. Flowers are beautiful! I love the way you put into words, "Faith in yourself and faith in one who created you with promise that he will love you unconditionally throughout your life" So true and so wonderful! Thank you, as always, for sharing your blog and your kind comments on mine. John

    1. i feel so tiny and helpless before your kindness dear John ,you are so blessed and have wonderful gift to comfort souls of all around you including us your blogging friend ,thank you for being so kind and responding to my simple words with such affection !

      yes i do believe that God the Creator has created us to love each other because Love is base of everything including life and human beings ,this is the only tool to fix everything i believe even HUMANITY that seems torn today because of our stupid selfishness ,we have forgot that we are one body of humanity and to save and keep it healthy we have to take care for others than ourselves because it is PROMISE OF CREATOR THAT ONCE WE CARE FOR HIS CREATURES HE WILL TAKE CARE OF US ,simple formula to please our Creator indeed i think

  23. Beautiful blooms in the photos - i can't wait for spring here in the mountains which will take longer to arrive. And i had to smile about your sons not wanting to go with you as they get older. That happened to me and probably everyone, lol. Even now my grandkids are getting to be like that. Why would they want to go with us when screen time would be more fun. lol. Wow you did good getting your tea set home while on a motorbike. In a way - i love that my kids found their own fun away from us because that gave us more time to have our own type of fun that would bore them, like nature stuff, antique shopping ... Hope your week is wonderful for you. YOu look so pretty in that phtograph.

    1. i just want to send to lots of sunlight and blooms right a way dear Sandy ,i really wish if there was a way

      when i was growing up t.v ,radio and books were ways to entertain and yet we would want stay home instead of joining mother in family gatherings
      now children have lot more to keep busy and have fun along with learning of course and they don't want to join parents anymore ,may be this is need and beauty of life :)
      i am living quite busy life as house wife now and still waiting for times when i can have more time for myself ,that will let me do all i want to do eagerly now

    2. yes you will have lots of time and it won't be long - amazing to me how fast the years my kids needed more of me have flown ... and three out of four sons now live in different states - pacific northwest states...where i am down in southern California. One son still lives about 40 minutes away with one grandson.

    3. i had that feel ,a self pity kind of feel that fear to be left alone whenever i thought about time when kids will grow enough and will not need me anymore ,but thank goodness that that phase passed long ago and now i am eagerly looking for time when i will have more time for my self once kids are settled ,this is nice that everything seems easier when we correct our way of thinking

  26. The flowers in your garden are very beautiful, especially tiger rose is amazingly beautiful and fresh.
    Your story with your husband on a motorbike around the city to see the bridge .. take a walk in the park, shop at the market, spend time together is really happy and romantic ..
    I am glad to hear that.
    Take care of yourself .. stay healthy, stay safe ..
    Have a nice week
