The Gardener

A nursery offers therapy for the mind


The variety of flowers you can find on a Himalayan trail is just mesmerizing — and if you are not focusing on them, you are actually missing a lot on your travel. The common ones are Chir, Apple, Walnut and Rhododendrons. But there are simple flowers that grow wildly on the slopes or on edges. Take time to notice them too — for they are the strongest and sustains naturally without much nurturing. Even if they are swapped away during one season, they will grow back again in the next.
