Gardening at Sundara Mahal Homestay

Gardens are not made by singing 'Oh, how beautiful,' and sitting in the shade - Rudyard Kipling


Such geraniums! It does not become us poor mortals to be vain—but, really, my geraniums!- (Mary Mitford, Our Village)

Our Guest Thaila and The Amazon Blue

Life begins on the day you start a garden. – (Chinese proverb)


The pleasures, the ecstasies, of the horticulturist are harmless and pure; a streak, a tint,a shade, become his triumph, … secured alone by morning care, by evening caution, and the vigilance of days. (E. Jesse)


 Earth laughs in flowers.

– (Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hamatreya)

And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair  –  Khalil Gibran
