Reema's Garden – A New Beginning

Here’s the thing… We had just 2 participants! I remember very clearly and distinctly how scared I was about having just 2 participants. If you would have seen my previous posts of my workshops..

They are fine irrespective ofContinue reading “I love plants but not all of them!”
