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.

    I especially love your gardens around the water feature. I can see that a lot of planning went into their placement. It must be difficult when your weather is very hot to have such a lush landscape. I can see why you won the prize!

    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.

    It's so much fun to see other people's gardens, especially when they are in other countries. I am a big fan of succulents too. Very nice job.
