During winter, Delhi roads, gardens and traffic islands turn into riot of colours as the season-flowers are in full bloom till mid-March.
Be it at Lodi Garden, Nehru Park or just the colony gardens, you will spot flowers of different hues and varieties.
Rows of Dahlias, Pansies, Poppies, Roses, Aster, Calendula, Carnation, Petunia.... will instantly uplift your spirit.
While houses in Delhi still boast of huge gardens, those living in Mumbai have to be happy with just a few pots on the window sill. But don't lose heart. As poet Rabindranath Tagore said: "Kothao amar hariye jabar nei mana mone mone...." (Nothing impedes my wanderlust,
I spread my wings to the chimes of my song, in my imagination). You can surely visit places through your mind's eye.
So feast your eyes on these beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces, nestled in the lap of nature.
Way to wonderland?
Great for a tea party with your pals...
Straight out of a painting book....
Best for curling up with a novel!!
