Tea and Flowers Make Everything Better

Good Morning Wednesday!!!!

I'm sure, the first thing you noticed in the above picture are the gorgeous Dahlias. Their color and symmetry was something I was drawn to the minute I set  my eyes on them. I was at Vijaya's place to design her daughter's bedroom when these beauties happened to get my attention.
As pretty as the Dahlias looked in the garden, Vijaya was certain that they had been there a while and was kind enough to send me home with a few stalks. She had me believe that by clicking some pics of the Dahlias for her and my blog, these pristine blooms would last a lifetime in the cyber world:)
So when I came home, I brought out the vintage beer mug and placed the flowers randomly into the container. I let them drop as naturally as they did, when they were in the plant. Magenta said to be the color of the non-conformist was already having it's effect on me. I wanted to break away from my afternoon routine and just relax with a cup of tea. The chilly weather called for a light throw. The Kantha sari duvet complemented the free spirited Magenta dahlias perfectly. 
While the tea brewed, I quickly took a few shots  for Vijaya and my lovely readers.

As I tucked my feet into the folds of the duvet and sipped on my chai, the magnificent blooms kept me company.With their quintessential quality to feed the soul, the flowers worked their magic. They bring beauty to the increasing stressful pace of life. I felt completely relaxed and refreshed and ready to take on a 6 year old (with unmatched energy levels) when he gets back home from school:) Thank you Vijaya for the splendid blooms that set the ball rolling for a perfectly indulgent afternoon.

You'll have a wonderful day and don't forget to indulge in all that life has to offer!!!

  1. Great pics as usual Sruthi but was disappointed to not see Chai in the cup. Just from the title of the post I was all too expecting to see a cup of warm chai with the vapors caressing the beautiful flowers. I know you would have nailed that shot! Vijaya, you need to give me the dibs on where you got those plants. Those flowers are gorg!
