My Botanical Journal #1
My dear blog reader Mridula Prakash,—or madhu had sent something very special a couple of months back. She send me a pack of 3 botanical journals, along with some other things! If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you must know how fond I am of diaries. Really. It’s actually a while when she sent me those, but I didn’t blog about it yet, because not until now did I actually used them and turned them into something special. The journals are so pretty, I didn’t want to write anything it it until I actually find some perfect to write in it.

And I did. I write about vegetables that we grow in our garden, and not just vegetables but other types of greens, too.

This blog post is the first part of my journal which is—tomatoes. I’ve made art, written about growing tomatoes, tomato facts, and tomato anatomy. Honestly, i’m so glad I started this journal. Right now, I’m enjoying it so much, I feel like doing it everyday.

Here’s what i’ve done in my botanical journal!





I’ve got to know lots of things while doing research for my journal. Finding about tomatoes, learning about them. I can’t wait to share my next vegetable/green with you!

    Pari, How have you been? Its been a while since I had a chance to peep into your space. You see, my husband and I expecting our second baby (like Sufi :)) and the whole 3 months have been, lets just say, not been fun.

    I am delighted to see that you started using the journal! So happy to learn that you are learning new things while researching for your journal.

      Wow, Madhu! That’s great! I just shared this news with Mamma, and she was really happy for you. I am also really glad for you. That’s right, Madhu. I can understand. Even mamma with her pregnancy with Sufi had faced such problems, like nausia, and kind off dizzy. Take good care of yourself. Hope you have a wonderful pregnancy.

      I’m great. Hope you’re doing wonderful, too. Again, thanks for the journal. I’m loving writing in it!

      All my best, and take care.

    That journal is such a great idea. It is both very informative and artistic. I love your approach.

    And you have inspired me to get to work on my plant list. One of my goals this year is to make a list of all the plants we would live to have when we are finally able to buy a farm. I was planning on something pretty boring, but seeing your post makes me think it will be fun to put more effort into creating something that is appealing to the senses, not just a boring list. 🙂
