Return to blog after too long


Oh,,,Its been almost four years……during which life was engulfed with grief,coming to terms, daily grind in a new format, watching grand kids born and delightfully filling days and life.

Reason enough to be away I suppose. I had forgotten gardening, forgotten the blog, and many many things that was part of my life. I watched You tube, Netflix etc to forget my nagging feelings. I was tired of TV, sports telecasts, and didn’t muster the courage to read books lying by the bedside. I was thinking of my life , lot of times. How normal mundane it was! While contemplating, I saw that I was not an achiever in any category.

Now, at 71, lying in bed after a bad fall, I recalled my blog. I am done with gardening, my helper sprinkle some water to the plants that come by themselves, out of the seeds embedded long ago. I cant see the flowers , want to go in the sun, feel the rain, caress the plants. But have to wait for the doc and physio grind. Patience, and exercise only way…trapped I am 🙂

I was browsing through my old bookmarks, and found some nostalgic blogs. Dear readers, I am sharing what I Iike, hope some of you may find them interesting.

At my age, going back in time is heartwarming. South India and, places where one lived decades ago is etched in memory. Of course the present visuals of places have undergone enormous changes, that doesn’t deter the heart.

Here the blog that caught my eye.

Hope to write more…Cheers.

About gardenerat60

As you guessed, I am a retired executive, looking for hobbies. Stumbled into gardening after reading blogs. Always wanted to use eco-friendly items in daily life. So, there was no heistation in deciding to put the vast terrace balcony to use for organic garden.

    Hey Pattu, nice to see you after a very long time. But then felt bad your fall. I understand how it feels to be confined to bed. These last two years have been very trying and testing for most of us. It’s good to hear about arrival of grand children. Congratulations Pattu Pati. Loads of good wishes to children. Please, take care and come here frequently. even if it is a small post.

    Welcome back!
    I’m really sorry to hear about your fall, and at this age, it’s definitely not easier, but I hope you get back on foot soon to check all your loved plants. And being around kids is bliss, and it could make life busy and forgetful things you intend to do. I have a little nephew at home, and the 4 months old is making life happier.
