A walk in Nature's lap n a Friend's Company over awesome Breakfast..... Can you ask for more?


Waking up to a rainy morning in spring after a dry n hot spell was just so refreshing...... A friend n I decided to go for a walk in the morning followed by breakfast at one of my favourite places...
Nehru park is an amazing stretch of green near Chanakyapuri. It's a place where a lot of my childhood has been spent..... We use to come here almost every Sunday to play, practice n picnic with family n friends..... Cut back to present:) The blooms here are extremely colourful and vibrant, everyone comes here for different activities.... Walking, Yoga, Jogging, Playing, Practicing sports and loads of other stuff.....


My dadaji(granddad) and aunt also go to the park everyday regularly.... They have their own set of park-friends and dadaji even has a party with eats from Chandni Chowk..... Dadaji was surprised to see my friend n me at the park so early in the morning......

We started walking, I was painfully slow due to my injured foot but the weather, people n fab surrounding n my friend had me going :) A lady was meditating between the tall trees.... Her face looked so calm n serene.... Didn't want to disturb her.... took a long shot from far, between the tall trees... The kids were having a blast, play cricket on simultaneous pitches n enjoying themselves....

The only thing which really irks me all this beauty is the litter..... This mentality just beats me... If we won't litter in our houses, then why litter in public places.....

Moving on we go for breakfast .... So you have till the end of this post to figure out where we went.... Do leave your comments on where you initially thought we went.
Is breakfast complete without Milk n Coffee... nah...

My friend's healthy breakfast......

My spread.... pork Sausages, fried Tomato with cheese, scrambled Eggs, multi-grain Pancakes, with a side of Bacon strips.....The weather and company made up for the lack of alcohol.... They just wouldn't serve before 11am....

So let's finish the suspense n tell you where we had gone unless you've figured out all ready.... Had gone to All American Diner at India habitat Center for Breakfast... n now you also know why we were looking for alcohol... I love the Margarita's they make here... Ok back to breakfast.... We met these gentlemen there enjoying their breakfast...

These pinwheel shaped pink-n-white flowers at the Habitat Centre held my fancy for a bit... Haven't seen them before n didn't even know their name.... A google search later I found that they are called 'The Phlox Peppermint Twist'....

Love this shot at Shanti Path..... need I say more... :)

A morning really well spent....... :)

So did you figure out where we went...... or did the picture reveal it?

Hi !!
Lovely pictures. I think the Peppermint Twist is a member of the Petunia family. Petunias grow especially well in Delhi and most of our public parks have them.
