Let me introduce my famous foursome. These are my fashion-forward planters. Continue reading
I am back after a rather long recipe-posting hiatus and also after a rather refreshing long weekend vacation at North Tahoe and Reno.

Summer months automatically mean mangoes. Mangoes flood the Indian grocery stores here. You would also find them at Trader Joe’s, Whole Food etc. AB and I try the varieties that you get here and this year we have been especially lucky to have found these excellent ones in one particular Indian store here. The taste of those mangoes takes me straight back to Kolkata when I would relish the ‘Langra’ variety while my entire family would go for ‘Himsagar’ without batting an eyelid.
Summer is here. Temperatures are soaring. (I hear on Monday it will be 90 F).The sun seems to be shining right on top of our heads already. But then it IS summer! Summer means no school, more fun and lots of activities. (yes yes, swimming pool, I am coming!) But before I tell you what inspired me to make this design for my first succulent planter, parents take note. Fret not thinking “What am I going to do all of summer?! No school, no camp, kids at home!!” This could be one of the activities you could engage them with. 🙂
As I have mentioned in ‘About Me’ I like painting. But I have not mentioned my love for gardening.I have been gardening and self-learning the do’s and don’ts for three years now and have accumulated quite a few terracotta and clay planters. This spring I decided our patio needs a makeover. And I wanted to achieve that by indulging in what I am obsessed with now – painting terracotta planters or pots.
