Summer arrives, finally...

  Its been a verDSCN0650y moody, misty muggy March!! There seemed to be some reluctance, and maybe the skies, the sun, the wind, the clouds had varying sessions of impromptu meetings, to devise methods in keeping the oncoming summer at bay!! There were windy days, dusty days, rainy days, ‘chilly’ days and outright muggy days. Never knew what would be in store the next day morning; wet pavements or brown dusty streets, wailing winds, or the warm,fuzzy rays straining through the grey mass of clouds.

And now its finally come to an end, i guess this period of confusioDSCN0571n, prevailing in the skies above, and all have been told to get back to their respective jobs, and stop fooling around; Mr. Sun has been formally instated as the reigning premiere for the upcoming session!!

I really marvel at the few greenery, which i happen to chance upon on the streets. Never fails to bring a smile, and fills me with a sense of awe and wonder at the efforts gone into it, in making the flowers bloom, so gaily, in keeping the green parts, a real fresh sprightly green! Hats off to them! To all those who harbour away at their petite gardens or pathways. Thanks to them, we get to feast upon, these wonderful gifts of nature, which definitely spruce up our spirits, besides their silent life nurturing role.

My blog these days seems to resemble monthly weather reports! But honestly this bizarre changes in climate, this past month i would think, is definitely worth writing about! And hoping not to crib and whine about the summer, but focus on things other than climate, weather, clouds and rain. (fingers crossed!)

Well... More to come before the real summer, I'm afraid... You will probably write a few more reports before the one that says - Oh my God it's hot!

Enjoy the weather (and greenery where available) and have a nice week.

yes make the most of it i would think, until the heat takes over!

Everything seems extra special towards the tail end, like a tasty piece of pastry.

Impressive piece of writing, esp. the first part . . .

hey! thanks for the compliment :-) by the way your comment made me google this "inexplicable combination" and was surprised to find that it has been a subject of much research already! it seems that great mathematicians were also great musicians and some researchers have even unsuccessfully tried to find correlation between the two!!!

with such a complex brain of ours that modern science is still busy unraveling and with more and more bloggers out there... i am sure that we will come across many more interesting type in our journey through cyber space...
