some simple pleasures..



--> Watching the buds of peace lily every morning, one of which is half opened already. (pic on the right is taken form google)

--> Waiting for this week to pass by and hoping to see some life this time. Because as per the suggestions, soaked coriander seeds have been put in soil and the pot has been safely moved to the unreachable dark corner of the kitchen cupboard which wasnt being used for anything else.

--> & last but not the least, I am at regular intervals watching the bird feeder that I have set on the balcony wall. With some brown bread crumbs, water and trays of table rose on both sides of it.. Couple of birds flew past it but are yet to sit there. Maybe I will replace the bread with some sunflower seeds coz birds seem to like that more as per content on the net.

I am not expecting a variety of birds to visit me in this hot sand land anyways, just about anyone getting its thirst quenched would make me glad..

A moment of posing for my camera is all I want in return :)

Sometimes when we are busy running to catch a bus or train every morning for those 'then most important' deadlines at work, we miss so much that continues to take place around us. We either take them for granted or just dont notice.

I will leave you will a super interesting thing that I just found while browsing for some information on bird feeding. A LIVE CAM VIEW OF A BIRD NEST, WITH SOUND.. click here to see that site.

Tara - Hey, I did read the post. Why don't you try Dates? Birds in this region are used to eating dates from the million or so date trees planted here. Dates along with Water should be good. Speaking from experience. You'll even find parrots then ;)

Passionate Goof said...

Oh! I love the lily! And you bird feeding and all huh? Nice nice, you should also keep a water bowl I think, that will attract them in this scorching heat. And all the nest with the coriander, once yours works, teach me how to do it too ok?

Swaram said...

LOL @ running nose nt looking gud on stage. I hv that hankey which Mummy has pinned to my uniform :P

Hey have you tried growing methi?

I successfully have sown them and they are 7 inches tall now.
Waiting for my first harvest.

And regarding the bird feeders, they would love the sunflower seeds.
