Photo Story: Spring is Here!

kashmir valley

The fields breathe sweet, the daisies kiss our feet,
Young lovers meet, old wives a-sunning sit,
In every street these tunes our ears do greet:
      Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to witta-woo!
            Spring, the sweet spring!
~Thomas Nashe
The season of blooming flowers. The season of sweet breeze. Favourite season of poets and romantics is here. So we thought of bringing in a little spring to our blog as well! Here’s a collection of flowers that captured our attention during our journeys along with some inspirational quotes.
