The countdown!!!

We are all set to leave in three days to India!!! Oh my God, yes three days. Each morning we wake up, we can sense the excitement building up. I will be meeting my parents and siblings after 10 months. This has been the longest separation.
   Amidst the excitement, there is a lot of last minute madness. Shopping, packing, closing the house, making arrangement for the plants sitter!!! That reminds me of this... Look what i spotted growing out from my pots...

A gladiola!!!! I don't know how I missed this? I must be have been too preoccupied to notice the buds before the blooms. And now I cannot believe that I will be missing all the blooms. There are seven plants in all and there are buds coming out now! Hopefully my plant sitter will pause to appreciate these beauties :)
Remember the time I mentioned I won a photo challenge contest in my post here. Well its time to vote for the winner. All the photos are to be voted till saturday. If you like my photo, I would very glad if you could head over here and cast your vote for me. Thank you all so much in advance...:)
