Badamwari: The Almond Orchard.

Hey all crazy spring lovers.
Spring is sensuous, Spring is colorful, Spring is beauty, Spring is picturesque.
We Love Spring!

Alright in this post i'm taking you to Badamwari Kashmir, for a change, I know you will like the place as i liked it. It was kinda family picnic with flowers showering allover you.

Situated at the foothills of Koh-e-Maran hill in the downtown area in Srinagar, Kashmir, the garden is dotted with the almond trees and various flowers all over.It is a bliss to be in such merry company of almond blossoms.
For centuries this garden was prepared for the yearly spring festival although the tradition died slowly as did all the other good things.
So it was for people to assemble in the garden to celebrate the beginning of the spring for few days along with the Maharaja[king]. bringing their own food and other necessities.

Nowadays the garden is open all year round but is most beautiful at the spring time......

Take a look yourself..

Spring Flower Wreath

Spring is on and so is our love for crafts and flowers. So what else can be better than making a flower wreath for the beautiful season.....

Wreaths are easy yet difficult to make, you got to have a lot of patience to deal with all the minuscule things you are going to use in it and for the newbies it is a bit of a job to get it all done cleanly!!

Well i can help ;)
I choose to make a wreath out of an old vintage decorative plate, few tiny bells[for that super cute jingle], and ribbon.
It is a quick project to work on.

How to do it ?
Make few[in my case 6] flowers from the ribbon, if you don't know how, check my post on The Diy easy ribbon rose

Use glue to hold them[flowers] in place at the center.
Scatter some bells and beads over the plate and flowers, Of course you are going to glue them up!
Make a ribbon string from the backside of the plate and hang it up.

Here is your easy pezy flower wreath done clean and beautiful.
