This is why! Flora from my garden! Can’t wait for the roses!

  2. Lovely!! Where did you get the jasmine plant from? I’ve been eyeing one in, but dont know if it will survive East Coast winters!

    YY: They are available in Home Depot. They are very hardy since they survive frost with no issues. But I doubt if they will survive snow. You can plant them in pots and move them inside in winter.

    • Yeah will try it in containers. Wish me luck!

      and LOL on luring the eli with the vadai. Since Boo is your lil sister, she must be sundeli 😛

      YY:Good Luck! Sandhula Sindhu.. While calling Boo sundeli, you made me the peruchali.. sigh…

  3. You are just tempting me to come there for summer, are nt you? *glares*

    YY: Wait… This is not all. Pictures of Ginger infused Sugar cane juice, roses, plans to a New Jersey trip, parents coming up soon!

    • Yes, tempt her some more YY. Do you want me to send her any pics?

      YY: Send that picture of Vengaya Vadai your mom made. Let us lure this Yeli(mouse) with the vadai.. Also send a recording of big S saying, I want to see my friend A and play with her. That will melt anyone’s heart!

    • You make sugar cane juice at home?

      • What is Vengaya vadai? Masal vadai maadhri ya?

      • When did I talk about sugarcane juice? As for Sugar cane juice with ginger we get it freshly made in our Indian grocery store.. yummy!

        As for Vengaya vedai, it is medhu vadai(ulundhu vadai) with diced onions added to the batter.

      • sugarcane juice with lime and ginger enga oorlaye kadaikardhu…:)

        since you have green thumb and all….i thought you grow organic sugarcane & ginger at home and make the juice! it is not that far-fetched right?

  4. Beautiful!
    YY: Thanks!

  5. Lovely.. I too made the jasmine strings this time – finally, after 3 years of having the beautiful plant!!
    The tulips are very pretty and your garden is awesome..

    YY: Thanks Reva. I do it every year. But for the last 2 years, the yield has been great, so it takes a long time to pluck the flowers and string them together. Last year it worked well since I had my inlaws here and since I had a broken leg, I had a lot of time in hand to string them.

  6. I love your garden..i can string flowers too but they will be so much apart..its difficult to string them pretty tight like the way you have done….

    YY: If you string them when they are buds, they will bloom and look together. In my case, I string them after they have blossommed. And I do 4 flowers per knot, thatz the secret of togetherness 🙂

  8. Amazing…please can you stop by my house one day and help me. I seem to be LOUSY at gardening 😦

    YY:Sure Saumya! Let me know when! 🙂 To be honest, they just grow! Don’t do anything special for them!
