The forbidden mini garden at Victoria Garden. The closed roof and the locked gates add so much drama to this place. What are they hiding inside there! Who has the answers? With its fancy rock fountain and variety of well kept plants, this place has got me intrigued for man years now. Maybe one day it will be open to the public. It's been over a year since my last post and while I am very picky about what I post here, I've also not taken the time to click something nice. That and I didn't feel anything could top my previous post (Which according to me is the greatest picture I've ever shot). My recent trip to the zoo let me have the chance to take a few pictures and while the zoo barely has any animals; it is filled with plenty of green plants. Much to my liking I go there for the plants and the rare birds that find solace in this little space of the cramped big city. #garden #SecretGarden #InstaNature #InstaLove #gardenDesign #Mumbai #vscocam #Fountain #travelgram

Those odd days when it's rains so hard that every nerve in your body says stay indoors but you're still out. Of the hundreds of pictures clicked that day, this one will always be the special one. #Vscocam #Igers #igersmumbai #Instapic #instalike #love #bnw #rain #mumbairains #storm #nature #dream #friendship

This is what it's for at the end. The perfect reward after a continuous effort to nurture and care for a plant. After a stint of bud drops and yellowing leaves I feared for the health of this plant. It's the warm weather of March that came in to save it, new leaves and new buds grew and no yellow leaves or bud drops. The #gardenia is a pretty plant with beautiful foliage and brilliant flowers with a strong sweet scent. This set of buds have bloomed and lived their lives and a new set has started to grow. There will be more Gardenia added to my collection in the months to come. Next on my list is - #Magnolia!

The Sunday morning was spent turning the mud and adding new compost to the plants, all in preparation for colder weather. The Internet radio app failed to work on the phone but half way into the job, I did have the good company of the friendly compound cat who seemed particularly interested in the section of red mud. I've not completed my garden goal that I had in mind at the start of this year, with 3 plants lost I have a lot more to learn. Might just add Bamboo next year. Despite the minor bruises on the palms, it's been a nice morning. #Garden #nature #plants #green #gardening #hobby #cat #catsofinstagram #sunday #morning #home #backyard #instapic #instagood #instalove

From the weekend nursery trips: It's poinsettia season again, as much as I love the colour of these leaves and the entire concept of how they can change to this extent, I can't find it in me to take another shot with growing poinsettias again. One truly has to be an experienced gardner to successfully grow these beauties. Much high maintenance. #gardens #nature #gardening #plants #green #christmas #red #leaves #instapic #mumbai #igers #love #hobby #weekend

Tiny human beings in the backyard. This little one wanted to be part of the discussion with the grown ups, little does he know, they were discussing landscape and not raising their arms to wave. It's always fun to wave at kids tho and we must do it at every chance we get! #Sunday #instaday #instapic #garden #home #kids #cute #picoftheday #nature #green #plants

The shades of green on the first day of sunlight after a long dark monsoon. Little wild flowers blooming everywhere, make this place look a little bit prettier for whatever short while that may be. #Mumbai #gardens #flowers #nature #picoftheday #Instapic #green #rains #yellow

The love for the night sky seems to run in the family. This is how the ceiling looks at home when the lights are switched off at night. These are not the stickers, a painter was called in for the job and quality glow in the dark paint was used. 8+ years on and they continue to glow bright. #vacation #travel #home #decor #stars #nightsky #glowinthedark #bedroom #bedtime #instapic #instalove #love #moon #spaceship #cross

When there is a Punjabi song playing in the background you have to over dramatize the video. In this one I do a full helicopter 180 degree pan for the 25th wedding anniversary cake of my cousin. #cake #wedding #silverjubilee #party #instafood #foodies #instapic #instalove #love #decor

Keeping my word, here is plant 1 of 12. A poinsettia for the month of #January.
My goal of 2016 is to buy a plant every month. One done 11 to go. #mumbai #plants #igersmumbai #igers #love #poinsettia #red #nature #instapic #plantsofinstagram #gardens #gardening #green

This is what home would look like if I had the choice to go full crazy on my plant budget. This was clicked at the nursery this morning. Spent more than an hour taking a close look at plants, flowers and pots. A plant was bought at the end. #igersmumbai #nature #love #green #gardens #gardening #nursery #plants #flowers #mumbai
