Flowers and Flickr friends 2

The Flower is the ultimate guide to color,composition,function,environment,and every other essential aspect of good floral design

"Shalini Bahadur "lovingly called "Shalz" by me is my first and best flickr friend.Sometimes one meets friends in the most unexpected ways.I am glad to have found her through flickr and then we came to know each other through flickr mails for a year and thts it some time after that ;there started a series of meetings and laughter and tea sessions at home and we started admiring each other for their own qualities..Now she is my dearest friend whom i can lean on to at any time.

Simple and genuine is the word for Shalini..
Exquisite photographs are always a visual delight to anyone and if that showcases some nooks and corners of a house and with the added beauty of the flowers to it,then that complements the concept.
She is a Freelance writer and researcher specializing in retail and travel, who loves to travel, and is creative, reads voraciously..and based in Dubai

She provides us some stunning floral designs ,contemporary in spirit ,for the casual living indoors,to relax your body and mind.

Truckloads of thanks to have provided with me and my readers innumerable number of images within seconds..
love you dear shalz

keep looking at it and enjoy and write to me ..
