do you know

...what she did last summer? The darling accompanied her mother on walks and discovered with awe the 'touch-me-nots,' chameleons and dragonflies, and lots of flowers!
if I had a single flower

She enjoyed her afternoon jelly sessions as much as she loved helping her grandmother pickle some mangoes in brine. I have to add, this girl loves her pani puri, raw mangoes and imli... does that make me a bad momma?

excuse the poor quality of picture, please :)

Some one insisted on picking flowers everyday so that she could float them in her (grandmother) ammamma's large crystal bowl and other steel utensils. She loved this!

I am sure she hoped her brother who tagged along everywhere would do more than lend moral support :D

Sigh! so much time to to indulge in games by herself!

Some days, we went on an embellishing binge, first sticking sequins on the bird cage...

... and, then on the terracotta chimes...

...and, a play dough bead necklace for me!

And, this is how we left things on the morning we left. I wish I had remembered to click the fridge door, the "painting wall of fame," that was just overflowing with painted papers and crafts.
