Today's photos are from Veneeta Kapila in Noida, India. India! You know how excited I get about international posts... Veneeta says, "I am taking care of this garden very passionately since 5 years now. I am an ENT surgeon in India but due to Parkinsons disease I am not able to operate. Hence all my energy goes into gardening.For me its like meditation, when i am at it 5-6 hours just go by and I forget my aches and pains. I would like to show my garden which is in full bloom. Some exotic tray gardens, some potted plants, and some landscapes done with utmost love and affection and with a gardener's help whom I trained over the years. I also look after the common apartment's park which is used by 100 families. Last winter I got a first prize from our Director Horticulture of our city in the flower show for best garden." Beautiful, Veneeta! Thanks so much for sharing your garden with us.

wittyone writes: This is beautiful and I can imagine all the work that went into the planning and implementation.

The seating areas alongside the water must make for a refreshing and restful place to sit and talk with others or just read a book. Posted: 9:13 am on July 18th
