After a whole semester, last Saturday was one day I could totally chill out. I wanted to go out to feel nature. I don’t remember being in a garden for a long time now. Shankar was determined to shake the boredom of buildings and offices, and wanted to go someplace quiet and green and sunny. We have been to most of the places around, which left us with almost no choice. We decided we would visit the Botanical Gardens close by. It was so wonderful to be in a place so quiet and beautiful.
We missed our camera at home, and ended up clicking pics using my HTC One mobile phone camera. I loved them even though they were not of the highest quality. The flowers were a treat to the eyes after the long and hard winter.
The lush green surrounding was a wonderful relaxation to the otherwise routine and urban life. The Korean Bell Garden, as seen in the last picture, is another attraction we enjoyed there. The structure was completely built by hand. This link describes the history of the bell garden in detail. It was an interesting addition to a garden full of botanical names written beside every plant.
