Home Tour I: Fuschia... and greens.. Gaur on loose... and an old ambassador


This is a strange choice of picture.. But this is what actually led us here..
While roaming the lonely streets of Kodai, this particular sign reminded us of the stories told to us by locals - of dangerous gang of Gaur on loose who went around rampaging...  It was a little scary but no harm is possible in a serene and peaceful town like Kodai. With a mix of anxiety and curiosity.. we decided
lets go!!
 
But the next view of
an old broken ambassador covered in dry leaves in the corner
 gave the place an eerie look
as something is lurking around...
And we thought could this be one of the
Haunted Houses
which old hill stations always boast of..
Now this is only getting better!!!
We proceeded further and found the place
lively instead of ghostly


Following a very inviting wooden roof and a lush green path
The flowers and plants paved the way
shades of fuschias and greens bloomed everywhere
and the Sun - it was in abundance.. 

Wow!! I am in a fairy tale...

Two cute ballerinas dancing on their toes
and fluttering their little colorful wings... 
This table and bench...
waits for the Seven dwarves
 back for their evening tea
after collecting the wood from the forest
<<love the seat made of log wood>> 
 Now who could live in this house with
walls so high and a small window to peek...
is it some Giant sleeping in his castle or
dear Rapunzel locked away waiting for her Prince Charming...
My imagination is getting more and more fuelled...

If two of us were any little,
I would have thought of us as Hansel and Gretel
who get lost in the woods and then find a mysterious house...
Not that I am eager to see a witch
but this place surely is made of
fairy tales...

yellow colored window.. brightness galore with or without sunshine

Now before curiosity kills the cat
lets satisfy and bring it back...
Hanging Dry Pines.. thats a welcome for sure...
Come on Lets knock at the door!!

Thanka Nayana.. it was such a pleasure to explore your blog.. what vivacious and colorful pictures..

Sujata said...

Wow !!!
So many fairy tales in a single post and such beautiful pics to tell the story your own way. I almost got lost in the stories you spun from your ever-ready yarn. You could do, "imagine this" and "imagine that" and we'd be lost in far off lands and in the not so far dream worlds !!

Neha said...

Thanks Sujata, it was a perfect place.. on the hills, with huge green area and a lovely house.. It was supposedly second oldest property in Kodai.. I wish I lived in such a beautiful place and city..

Rajesh Kumar said...

Good shots, especially fuschias - they are kind of low hanging flowers.

Indrani said...

Great shots!
I like the compositions of each.

Neha Gupta said...

Thanks Rajesh... they were really gorgeous. .. I wished we could have them in the city also.. but then who would go to the hills ;-)

Neha Gupta said...

Thanks Indrani... these shots were pure coincidence.. neatly tucked away in a vast vintage property
