This, my friends, is not curated reality. As I walk along the twists and turns, I sometimes wonder whether I am lost or have I just found myself? Almost as if it has read my thoughts, a fern waves out and encourages me onwards.

For centuries, man has hunted the pot of gold hidden at the end of the rainbow. The wealth of the Darjeeling Hills lies in its richness of biodiversity. At Selim Hill, when tears mix with warm sunshine and happiness, the multi-coloured bridge in heaven appears. Believe me when I say you can almost touch it and climb the steps upwards if you think it is time to go to the next level.

The Meadow Crocus is exactly like that. It is a pink flower that heralds the beginning of Spring. At the Second Chance House, seemingly out of nowhere, these dainty heads pop up all over the garden. They defy and deny help from the over-zealous, well meaning gardener. It is quite a treat to see your entire lawn blush coquettishly.
