HOW DOES MY GARDEN GROW................! And A Winner !

Hi folks

I hope you all are in tune with the spring season with love in the air and flowers everywhere!
The weather in kolkata is just too good with just the right chill and sunny sky.
The wedding season is also going on in full swing and so we can say that truly love is in the air.

I have lot of news and pics to share with you. ( HEAVILY LOADED WITH PICS)
First, without anymore delay, the winner for Aditya's Birthday blog hop is....

Conrats Dear! Do mail me your address for the candy. Thank you for all those who played along and wished Aditya.

Second, I won a Facebook contest --Ohmycrafts sharing a contest ! Thats really awesome isn't it?

And lastly, My terrace is full of blooms thanks to my DH who takes care of each flower and leaf more than me!(LOL)
His plants are as precious to him as my craft goodies are to me. We both are very possessive with our respective treasures. I,m not allowed to pluck a single flower!
So here are the pics.
