February was the season for flowers in Delhi, and I had my visual feast, all around town.
I caught up with my friend, Dola, at the Garden of Five Senses:
The flowers were predictably amazing:
And the vegetables, surprisingly charming:
The garden was made more festive with some added colour and interesting sounds:
Not to forget the holy cow!
Then the Mughal gardens were opened to public. After having heard rave reviews from Ma over the years, I insisted on dragging her and Joy back there to see the glory of the President’s estate. No electronics were allowed inside, and these pictures are all I could manage from the outside:
I wouldn’t call it a garden, as much as a display of gorgeous flowers – not a leaf out of place. I guess the ‘no cameras, no mobiles’ rule kept the chaos out, and all the senses on full alert. Well worth a visit.
