My Garden

My dear Indian friend Rupali wanted to see some flowers that I grow. Most of you have seen them. But you know what a ‘show off’ I am. So please bear with me.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    I love that you have such a beautiful garden and yard! Your roses are so beautiful but I am amazed at the profusion of tulips and gladiolas. The yellow iris border is outstanding too! But, you didn’t include your orchids which are my favorites because it takes real talent and a green thumb to grow them!!!!

    I especially love the irises, the crocus, the glads, and the roses! Thank you for sharing your flower garden with us! Love the butterfly photo, too! 🙂
