Garden Affair : Makar Sankranti

 Makar sankranti is a festival celebrated on the occassion  of  Sun's transition into  the northern hemisphere. It's believed in the Hindu mythology that Sun's transition leads to end of winter months and beginning of longer days. 

Makar Sankranti is celebrated in our region by flying kites which is an act for Good health and prosperity. 

                                                           Flying kites on Makar Sankranti 

Meanwhile my garden is seeing lull winter period with only few annuals blooming 

A french marigold bloomed after a long dormancy

  1. Thank you friend. May your kite fly high and free in the sunshine!

  2. Dear Arun, the flying kites look great. I didn't know that there is also a period in India when there are only a few flowers! I'm happy about the sight of the french marigold because here are no flowers either. But as you know we saw wonderful nature in Costa Rica.
    All the best from Austria,

  3. I love your 'Flying kites on Makar Sankranti'. A spectacular moment!
    Thank you for sharing this!
    Happy WW Arun and a fine week!

  4. We have very little greenery and no flowers. Days have been gray and rainy but no significant snow. Lots of wind, so your kites would be flying well and adding some color to the scene!

  5. Beautiful kites! Thank you for hosting.
