Original name Jasminium flowers,are native to tropical and subtropical regions of Eurasia, Australasia and Oceania, although only one of the 200 species is native to Europe.Their center of diversity is in South Asia and Southeast Asia.A number of jasmine species have become naturalized in Mediterranean Europe. For example, the so-called Spanish jasmine was originally from West Asia and the Indian subcontinent.The fragrance which is irresistible and heavenly is mostly adored by Asians and Middle Easterners.
First blooms from my plant captured sometimes back.
“Child, jasmine is one of the most seductive scents imaginable, and the stuff from Grasse is the finest in the world. In the little village where I collected that, the farmers won’t even let their nubile daughters walk through the fields when the flowers are ripe for fear they won’t be able to control themselves.”

Cee’s Flower of the day photo challenge
Out of enormous varieties of Lilies the Asian Lily is commonly seen in all parts of the country Because of its resistance ability to all weather conditions. Here’s a piece from my heart,
Miss Lily of the valley
Went in search of Peace Lily
Tripped over a stream
And returned as Water Lily
Clicked at a stopover while holidaying in the hills closer to the Victoria Dam

Being engaged in some personal matters deprives me to sit and compose a decent post..Will be back soon with an interesting topic.Until then I would like to leave you with some interesting Photographs and a quote from a favourite Song of mine.
TOP OF THE WORLD by the very famous Brother & Sister duo THE CARPENTERS.
“I’m on the top of the world lookin’ down on creation
And the only explanation I can find.
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love’s put me at the top of the world”….

Pathway to Gems.
In response to the weekly photo challenge prompt Pathway,I’d like to share some pictures that I captured during my visit to a Gem mine a few days back with a group.
It was a long walk to begin with through a plush green wide pathway to a narrow and rigid one leading to the site.
That’s my dearest💕
As we drew close all we could see was a small cadjan hut,to our dismay.Since we were in huge expectation about the place,the sight of the it astonished us for a moment.Later on we figured it out that beneath the hut lies a tunnel several feet in depth,where only workers could get in to dig for Gems.
Sri Lanka, the island known as the pearl of the Indian Ocean lives up to its nickname as a hotbed for a variety of gems.Being ever popular for its Ceylon Blue /Star Sapphire and many other types of Gem stones,
It was indeed a rare opportunity that I got to visit the Gem mining sight in Ratnapura aka The City of Gems which is almost a 3 hour drive from Colombo.
Magical Sunset at The Heritance hotel Kandalama, Sri lanka. This was taken while on holiday last summer.
While browsing my gallery the moment I saw this picture,the very first thing that came to my mind was ‘Oh boy this is Magic‘ and I thought I’d use it for this week’s challenge.
