We are developing. Really?

Category: Flowers | Posted: Tue Jun 18, 2013 2:41 pm

As many you have seen the technology boom across the world, I now realise that my mind has just matured enough to understand the impact of it. I lived my childhood in a rural region where vehicles of any sort was an amusement and now, in my thirties I live this town where congestion is a daily routine.

I am not really convinced we are developing. We make things complex and then build tools to solve it. We have the computer which puts together the pixels to convince us that they are letters and numbers. We have smartphones to take photos, and to take millions photos so that neither the camera nor our memory can hold it. And when we lose the camera, we worry about the photos which we have only looked at once - while we actually took it.
In my childhood, I have seen my dad and my mom work during day and we all had plenty of time in the evening for gardening, cooking and spend time with our friends and relatives.

These days, I really can't figure out what the people are living for. Food? No... that can't be. We are working 24 hours and don't have the time to eat. Money? probably.. thinking it can buy all the worldly pleasures and satisfy us. But how many of us make that much money?

Stop our desires and we will be satisfied with our simple life. I am sad the way our young children embracing and craving for the digital toys. Why as adults, we don't have the time and the spirit to put that little spark of love to the nature in those little minds?

I am really glad to know there are people across the world and in developed countries having the real passion for plants and animals. But I am sure, they out numbered!!!

How the Situation Can Affect You

I would like to share how a similar situation constantly can affect anyone unless you can move away from it.

These trees where on the Seven Sisters Country Park near Newhaven which is quite near to the sea and the constant wind has made these trees to have this strange shape.

A Perfect Sunny Day

Category: Flowers | Posted: Mon May 27, 2013 10:11 pm

The warm sunny bank holiday was more than enough to get out of house early morning. I set out to one of national trust's picnic spot in Reigate.

Walking from the car park to the open hill top, I came across a number of friendly dog walkers and their beautiful pets. To make my day, I wast delighted to spot a couple of baby foxes.

The tree trunk I found on the way, I just wanted it to be in my garden.

I loved this place very much and I will be coming back here regularly. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Spring Arrived After A Long Time

Category: Flowers | Posted: Mon May 20, 2013 11:29 am

After one of the longest winter, spring has arrived in the UK. But the cold nights makes most of the plants stll hesitate to bloom.

I was quite happy to see some of the first daffodils and bluebells on my way to work this morning.

The cold snaps made all the flowering plants out of sync and this spring is not as good as any previous ones I have seen.
The migrating birds also seems to struggle a lot. I couldn't find usual birds until April. Even then only a few. But those who have arrived earlier has already brood and find less competition for food.
Hopefully next year, they all will have a better spring.
