Flowers – can’t imagine life without them!

For years, I have done the 4 am trips to the flower market and handpicking flowers at the market has been a task I have enjoyed. The intoxicating aromas of the blooms and their lovely colours made my mornings come alive.

I have always found a strong connection with the vibes and welcoming cover that the place holds. The warm approach with matthis and tea… That ‘wake up and feel the rush’ buzzing in my head early in the morning…That sheer addiction that made me a ‘Mandiholic…

My days back then were so full with work and family affairs, that there was no time for pensive moments or so I thought. Now when I look back, I realise that I have been blessed because I got to start my day with fresh flowers.

Even now I am surrounded by fresh flowers for most part of the day… One of the perks of being in this profession, I guess! The aromas and the colours work their magic each day…

I cannot see a day without flowers… I hold the bundle of flowers, checking out the shades of them… Quality…Getting as close to the feel…petal by petal…and a sudden gale that takes me in…

The greed of stocking them in my store and seeing them bloom… The thrill of putting them in together passionately in a flower-bunch or an arrangement…

That feel of various texture of flowers…Then, the blending of shades and contrast of the colors…Which creative person will not go crazy, just being there?

It is like feeding my soul…

Breathing the purest of the fragrance and that delicate touch stays with me…
