This is the very sad view from my balcony now. All my plants died while we were in Nepal and the neighbor across the street sold his house; the new owner had it demolished this past week, I'm assuming to rebuild.
It is always a wonderful thing to leave behind a desert country where temperatures can reach 120 and above (126 yesterday) to visit a country rich in biodiversity. The flora and fauna of Nepal is much more varied than any other area in Asia. From grasslands and jungles, to farmlands, forests and mountains high, there was much beauty to be seen (and a few creatures to surprise us along the way).
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. ~Eleonora Duse
Hope you are having a fabulous Friday! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy
