Taste the lemons!


Lemons are sweet. No, they are salty. No, they are bitter. No, they are sour.

How do you know unless you taste it?

The taste of lemons makes us wink. Winking indicates that something is a joke or a secret or as a signal of affection or greeting. Why then make lemonade, when lemon in itself is delightful? It is the perspective that matters- the outlook towards life. Everything else will depend on this perspective.

 When life gives you lemons, taste them!

Nature’s Unmatched Texture

The Green Flower.
The Green Flower.

Layers of green petals arranged beautifully and consistently one on top of the other, as if trying to hold, cover and protect the pistil from the external environment.

This picture was taken in the garden of Tourist Rest House of (KMVN) Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nagam in Ranikhet, India. The exact name of this flower is not known to us. It was for the first time we had seen a green flower with hard petals. So we decided to name it the Green Flower. Not sure if it is a cactus of any form because the climate of Ranikhet is pleasant with sunshine, rainfall, and snow in winters.
