Little Flower Farms  An Eco-Restoration & Conservation Initiative. Homestay, Organic-Farm-Trails, Campgrounds. For reservations & info : littleflowerfarms@gmail.com

A big part of the slow life is taking the time to appreciate the small things. We were treated to a wonderful display of blues yesterday as the clounds hung low, promising impending non-stop rain. Sure enough, 10 minutes later, the heavens opened up. Just another day at @littleflowerfarms. Pictured here, the view from the outdoor dining area. .

Mussaenda (pronounced muss-ay-end-a),is a beautiful shrub native to the tropics, from West Africa through the Indian sub-continent, Southeast Asia and southern China.
The appeal of the mussaenda lies in its extraordinary inflorescence, the flowering part of the plant.
The flower itself is a tiny simple yellow star, only about 5mm across, but the parts surrounding the flower are stunning - extraordinary pendulous bunches of soft, beautifully coloured "flowers", with each "petal" up to 10cm long.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Got completely rained on on your last farm holiday? We love how @artbyak47 spent her time exploring the farm during a trying time of power outages and incessant rain in Idukki district by drawing the sweetest doodle. Pinch for the cutest details in this uplifting doodle. Encouraging all guests to come with your favorite book or art supplies to completely switch off and unwind during the monsoons. .

Sweep away my pain
Bring your healing to my heart

We love a walk around our vegetable and herb garden. Brimming with so many possibilities of ingredients and dishes that are simple and​ delicious. What's your favorite farm to table meal? Pictured here mint grown within recycled tyres as a boundary. .

For all you fish lovers, here's a favorite, the Naadan Kerala fish curry. We could talk about it, or you could come by and have a taste of this centuries old tradition and flavours.
