Back with blooms !!!!! :)

Almost after 3 weeks , I am back :)  I missed the blog land very much…did you miss me? ; ) Just yesterday, I saw my blog statistics sinking down to near 2 digit numbers . Well, that tells no one missed me …he....he…..just kidding :) Couple of blogger friends did ask me and were glad to know that I am alive ;)

I was away due to some personal reasons and also busy with the work in new flat . To break the silence on my blog , I have got few photos from my tiny balcony garden to share with you . : Zinnia
Zinnia : California Mix : : Zinnia
Zinnias have grown 3.5 feet tall :) : Zinnia
The first flower,  4 inches in diameter : Zinnia
This is light purple but the color isn't showing up in image : Zinnia
 Bright orange...this one is my favourite :) : Dahlia
Dahlia dwarf : the bud looks like small tomato : Hibiscus
Hibiscus : These were not grown from seeds but going great

Zinnias again ...... : Zinnia : Zinnia
This is my first gardening experience of growing from seeds . Anshita’s room opens into the balcony so the very first thing I decided was , that everything I use , will be organic. I am using neem oil for pestcontrol . For soil , I am using Cocopeat which is good for germination and water retention . Also, I have come to know that vermiculite is not good for health . So instead , I am planning to use cocohusk or something coir based .  It is easily available in India but not online .

I love my zinnias . I have opened my blog after these many days and I am waiting eagerly to read your posts too. Hope you liked my tiny garden images:)

Happy weekend !!
Preeti :)

It's always so much to do, but in the end you'll be lucky :-). We also did some renovations this summer, son's room and the entrance hall. I'm so glad that this work is done! Thanks for sharing your balcony beauties with us! Wonderful photos, your zinnias are so pretty :-)). And really grown from seeds? Wow!! Have a nice evening, dear, and a good start in the new week tomorrow :-)

  17. Hi dear, Whenever I am away from my blog, I too keep wondering if anybody misses me! :)
    Lovely flowers, you are really tempting me to start gardening again. A few years ago we were staying in a ground floor rented flat and we had almost 75-80 potted plants - courtesy my Dad. When we shifted to our own flat on the eleventh floor I had to give most of them away...boohoo. Then, even the few I had kept were sacrificed when we shifted to Ahmedabad. While this house has two massive balconies, keeping plants is not feasible as I am frequently traveling to Mumbai and when I come back they are almost dead.
    So I am going to enjoy your gardening exploits... :)

  18. beautiful flowers sweetie =)
    lovely colours
    that's so great to read you and to see everything is OK for you
    I've been away from blogland for a while too, but I'm back too =D
    Hope everything goes as you want in the new flat
    big hugs

  20. Lovely flowers! Welcome back :)

  21. Zinnias have always been my favorite flowers to grow from seeds. They are big and bright and grow so fast!

  22. I love zinnias too. I always have them in my garden to bring in the pollinators.
