United Summer and Winter

Winter has come.. oh really? Not in my city! At least, not such, that everyone has an imagine of... This season in the North India (I am not talking about Himalayas, as it is -16 in some places there already) is like some of the Summer days in Kazakhstan. The trees are green, some are blooming, it is above 20 in day time...and yea, my garden is still producing vegetables. There has been a significant change since my last garden update - now you can see the pods on the bean bushes! I planted seeds of some salad few days ago. It has already given second leaves. Ahh... so cute :)
 Just look at my lemon yellow marigolds in their full bloom! My first attempt of making a flower bed. Though marigolds are not quiet like those which my Mum had, I feel so good when seeing them every morning. There are about 20 of them as of now, and these are the most fluffy ones.
In spite of really Summer like days, I don't forget about coming up holidays and their attributes... like snow! I found this Linda's Snowflake Potholder on Ravelry and tried the pattern straight away. This potholder went to my colleagues home, as I gifted it to her for her b'day. I definitely want to make more of them for gifting.
Hope you all having a good week! Happy Thanksgiving and wishing you more Summer like days!

  6. Your winter now is like what we are having. Still perfect for short sleeves. And today is a little humid as it sprinkled just a little but seems like it wants to rain more. Your garden is wonderful. We have two balconies that I've got plants and flowers on. Tomatoes are usually somewhat successful and mint but the green peppers I tried to grow one time didn't work out at all. I have some coneflower seeds from a blog friend in Colorado that I need to see about planting. Wonder if they will grow? The potholders turned out great. I'm sure your friend loved them. Thanks for all your visits and comments. Wishing you a beautiful day. Tammy

    1. That is what I do too - experiment with different plants and time of their planting. I even made a garden diary to keep track of what grows and how. I am liking it! Tomatoes also grow here quiet fine, but I haven't found the right time for them yet. I also noticed that Kuwait and India have many plants in common, the climate might also somehow similar.
      The coneflowers might grow well,just try few seeds first.
      Thanks for visiting my blog too, Tammy! Have a great day!
