From Me To You Picasso

I promise to play catch up with Awards this week.

Over two months back, Ann at All Write with Coffee handed over the 'From Me To You" Award, only she called it the "From Me To You (Picasso)" Award, and gave it to me because she liked some of the photographs I had posted that week!

I'm exercising my poetic license, and am passing it on to bloggers who touch the heart with the visual images they create -

Heather of I'm not Hannah
Faith of Sacred Dirt
Fifi of Fififlowers
Jan of Crazy Jane
Marjorie of Everything Emerald
Patricia of Patricia Stoltey

Each is an incredible artist, and I salute them all.

And here's a photograph of a flower that bloomed in my "garden" earlier this week. One of the several varieties of jasmine, Juhi, with their mild fragrance always take me back to my childhood.

Jasminum auriculatum

Thank you, Rayna, that's so sweet.

And congratulations on receiving the award -- you have wonderful photos but you also have a way of giving us word pictures that make us feel as though we've been all the places you talk about. The jasmine photo makes me want to lean over and inhale the scent.

Do you remember the Bhimsen Joshi & Manna Dey song- ketaki gulab juhi champak ban phooley?
That's what your beautiful photograph evoked.
I've loved all your recent posts, just been caught up with too much stuff to comment on each. Loved the mega-post especially:)

Found you of course through the interconnections here blogging. Glad I did. You remind me that I met a wonderful man years ago here in Virginia (USA) who did acupressure on my brain-injured daughter. He also taught us many things about India food and other cultural things. We loved him. So nice to meet you.

@ Fiona - nobody deserves the Award more than you do

@ Mason - the flowers are long gone, but the fragrance lingers

@ Patricia - the thing that drove me to your blog was the pictures and the word pictures of Colorado.

@ Dipali - will you laugh if I tell you that one of the reasons why I bought the plant was because of the song? Champa is on my wish list of plants too.

@ Jan - I am sure it will fall into place ultimately.

@ Lydia - one of my favourite flowers, and only for the fragrance

@ Doli - do :-)

@ KarenG - hope you find some new ones to follow.

@ Yvonne - thank you

@ Clarissa - I think you wanted to honour a particular photograph you liked.

@ Alex - thanks

@ Karen - most welcome

@ Jane - thank you

@ Al - thank you for the pleasure your photographs give me

@ Ann - thank you for dropping by. And the world is so very interconnected, isn't it?

@ Wanda - thank you

@ Jemi - thank you

@ Faith - thank you for those wonderful words
