To the cute Couple!

Hello everyone,
It’s been more than a month since I’ve posted anything here, which was due to a progression in my career that kept me away from writing posts, but I just couldn’t keep myself away from the Blogland, so I did manage to read some posts (there’s still a lot to read though). The training for my new position is really hectic that I couldn’t spend much time for my plants except for watering them and somehow managing to transplant the seedlings.

I have so much to talk about the updates in Plantville, but I’d like to dedicate today’s post to a good friend of mine and her husband (B & S). They got married this month and here’s a gift for the cute couple.

May the two of you who have accepted this sacred relationship in front of the primeval element – fire live your lives as One!
May the colorful differences in you merge into a peaceful white that bonds you both together!
May love sprout in your hearts and wide open into a bosom that’d give each other resort at difficult times!
Forget all the inhibitions and smile at each other that speak a dozen words more strongly.

I wish you a great married life and may lots of colorful blooms smile up at you!

Dear Chandramouli, What a wonderful wedding gift and how very thoughtfully expressed. I am sure that your friends will be delighted with such a colourful and pretty selection of flowers.

Congratulations too on your promotion which, I do not doubt, was well deserved. Have a very happy and peaceful weekend.

What a lovely way to celebrate the couple! Your flowers are all so beautiful! The flowers in the sixth photo are Indian oleanders, aren't they? The oleanders are now in bloom in my neighborhood too. We have white and pink ones..
Please don't work too hard!

Hello Chandramouli, I did wonder where you had gone! Congratulations on your career move, I'm sure things will settle soon enough and you will be back tending your beautiful plants.
I think your heartfelt wishes for your friends are just lovely!

Rose said...

Congratulations on your new position, Chandramouli. Plantville seems to be doing very well in spite of your busy schedule. Wonderful wishes for the newlyweds.

jsb said...

That gerbera is gorgeous! Can't believe you grew it in a pot on your terrace. The other flowers are lovely too.

Glad to hear you've been away from the blog for such a good reason.
What a lovely gift to your friends. Many years of happiness for them.

Diana (Di) said...

Chandramouli, such a lovely offering for your friends. And much congratulation on your career progression!

kanak7 said...

Superb photos! And what a lovely collection of blooms!

Good to see you again, Chandramouli!

antigonum cajan said...

The important, the essence of a blog is the information. NOT the cuteness.

I suggest that you stop changing the damn template every
couple of months.

Pretty please with sugar on top. If it
ain't broke why fix it?

As an intercontinental critic is my duty
to inform you that
this trend is irritating and not aesthetically pleasant as you may think.

James Missier said...

Nice poem & pictures.
Good thing you have the time to water your plants in spite of your busy schedule.

Chandramouli S said...

Thank you, Phillip. That was sweet :)

Hi Shankar, hope your married life is going great. Thank you for the kind words.

Thank you, Marion :)

Well, thank you, Edith. I just hope the busy office period gets over soon and I resume my normal life again.

Thank you, Catherine, for the wishes.

Thank you, Tina. I am trying not to work too hard. I am not a workaholic basically and making me behave like one is kind of stressing me out :D

Thank you, Randy :)

Thank you, Sapphire. Yes, they are Pink Oleanders and the ones that are mainly used in our daily worship - it blooms year round here. I have the white ones and the dwarf one that's kind of dull pink. The white has started blooming again now.
As I said, I'm trying not to work hard :)) Yea, I am lazy when it comes to office work :D

Thank you, gippslandgardener. I am just waiting for the day when my schedule would get back to normal.

Plantville is way ahead, Rose, even with my minimal tending, but I need to attend to the seedlings that are being attacked by bugs.

Thank you, jsb. The Gerberas do very well in pots. You should try them. They're so wonderful.

Thank you, antigonum cajan. About the changes in my blog template, I am experimenting. I haven't yet settled on a theme that I really like.

Gardener on Sherlock Street, thank you :)

Thank you, Di.

True, James. With the hot days, if I missed watering the plants even once, I'd lose them for sure and I am lucky that I do somehow find time to water them and spray them occasionally. Thank you :)

Aham said...

That is so cute, thanks so much for those lovely wishes and many many congratulations on the new job front.

I'll be happier if this changed job-status involves trips to CA, strictly to check out pacific flora life :)

Chandramouli S said...

My pleasure, Bhuvana :). Hope you're enjoying your married life.

I'm still under training, so kind of hectic here. About the official trips, it's out of question, unfortunately. I'd love to see the flora and fauna of CA someday though.

Kanak: Thank you :) I hope are well and I have to catch up with your posts.

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

It's wonderful to hear that you're having career progression. What a sweet tribute to your friends. Beautiful flowers, too.

antigonum cajan said...

Oh, I see, a new trend. A template a week, perhaps it may
become a trend to enhance the essence!

I will stick with my off centered picture
but transcending in the process.

Good luck in your
projects, Plantville
wise and otherwises.

This goes for your fans, also...

Chandramouli S said...

Thank you, Rosie :)

Autumn Belle said...

Chandramouli, Congratulations on your job advancement! Also congratulations to the newly weds. It's great to have you back blogging again. The flowers here are very pretty and sweet, a very appropriate dedication to your friends.

walk2write said...

What a wonderful blessing for the newlyweds! I'm happy for you that your career is advancing. I hope the challenges are not overwhelming and that you find some time to relax and enjoy your plants. I meant and forgot to say in my latest post that your storytelling style inspired me. I think I'll add a link to the post now that I'm thinking about it. I'm looking forward to more of your stories here!

Sunita said...

What a lovely wish for your friends! Your garden seems to be blooming beautifully ... well done! And congratulations on the developments in your career.

Green thumb said...

Wow, the wishes are so sweet that I wish someone had given them to me. Congrats on your career and good that you can still find time to blog.

Jan (Thanks For Today) said...

Hope all is well with you Chandramouli! Your photos are gorgeous;-)

Stone Art said...

Yes I have the same problem, neglecting blogging when work takes over. You just make up for it when you get a quite spell. Fortunately for me we have lots of snow here in Ireland at the moment so it gives me an opportunity to do just that.

A wildlife gardener said...

Thank you for visiting Our Little Corner Of Paradise this year, Chandramouli S :)

Just popped by during the run up to Christmas to wish you all the best, and happy gardening in 2011…WG :)

It is Christmas time and I just wanted to wish you the best in the coming year....
