AMIDST the RUINS and GREENS; turning a year older!!

This is a prequel to the previous post. This is weird..I mean why do I tend to write later posts earlier?? he he  :D I dont know myself. Its just that I go with the flow whatever my heart feels. Anyways this post is the morning part of my birthday. You all must be wondering why do I have such elaborate birthdays!! I dont know..I just love celebrating...whatever be the occassion!!

Right from childhood, green has been my favourite colour. Choices tend to change as we grow up, but in my case; I am more in love with green than ever!! I have always loved nature especially greenery; dont know whether its the 'green' colour effect or vice versa. I always love spending time in parks and natural surroundings, rather than a mall, no matter however hot the weather is!! And a historical place amidst the greens is the perfect icing on the cake!! So this year I decided to romp around in the infamous Lodhi Gardens!! 

The Lodi garden was created in around 16th century. Its beautifully maintained with lush greens and tombs and mosques. However some people see it in bad light as couples are found to be making out there in the open. Even my husband was not too excited on going there; he suggested to choose a different venue; and when I refused to budge, he insisted I should not reveal the name of the place where we have been. silly is not it!! Well he even made sure I carried my doctor ID and our marriage certificate too in case any cop tries to harrass us!! OMG!! But you know anything is possible in our country!!

Enough with the talking, here are the beautiful snaps of our excursion cum birthday celebration!!

with the swans beside the lake...

a tiny island..

i always find bougainvillaeas pretty..espcially when they are pink!!

love my hubby for taking this one!!

this was taken when I was completely off guard; but it turned out cute!!

lovely laburnums!! reminent spring blooms!!

kinda ramp in the greens!!

by the lake..pleasant breeze...
Bada Gumbad (great dome) with yellow cannas!!

sheesh gumbad

finally managed to find someone to click both of us!!

I climbed high enough to get this picture!

now its obvious from where I am hanging from!!



hubby decided to stretch the 'tiny' me to be taller than the monument!!


captured while talking on the phone..answering the numerous good wishes of my friends!!

can you spot me in this pic?? :D

the turret..dont know what it means!!
 All sweaty with aching feet (the heels remember :p) it was a perfect outing in the greens!!

TRAVEL TIP:
 1. Winters are the best time to visit.
2. Carry umbrella and plenty of water.wear flats if you want to explore!!
3. There is neither any entrance fee nor any parking ticket!!  

I wore:
DRESS: globus
BELT:globus
BRACELET:forever21, globus
PUMPS:vansons 
SUNNIES: ALDO
