Photo Blog : Part 2 of Rejoicing Life at The Retreat, Bhimtal

As mentioned in my previous post of our "Travelling in Pajamas" adventures at The Retreat, Bhimtal, here i am posting some photographs showing the scenic beauty of Paddy's garden and surrounding areas. Hope you all enjoy the pictures.


In joy or sadness, Flowers are our constant friends :)
Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature - Gerard De Nerval
A flower blossoms for it's own joy - Oscar Wilde
Every flower must grow through dirt
Flowers are like friends - they bring colour to your world
Where flowers bloom, so does hope - Lady Bird Johnson
Flowers are our greatest silent friends
The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all
The Earth laughs in flowers
A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms
Bloom and glow in the thickest of mud
Happiness is seeing little things in nature
If you love nature, you will find beauty everywhere
We never notice the beauty because we are too busy trying to create it
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time, like dew on the tip of a leaf - Rabindranath Tagore


Vitality and Beauty are gifts of Nature for those who live according to its laws - Leonardo Da Vinci
All nature seems to bespeak the works of God


Magic happens in Nature each day
When the flowers bloom, the bee comes uninvited - Ramakrishna
Stay close to nature, it will never fail you - Frank Wright
Believe in tomorrow
If you want to be happy for a lifetime, plant a garden
