The Owl And The Bees

Strange title for a bottle, isn't it? But there is a story behind it, so read on...

This bottle is inspired by a huge Peepul tree that stands right in front of our house. Throughout the year this Peepul tree is a hub of activity.

Come spring and the bees are busy building up their hive, stealing nectar from the flowers in our garden and other surrounding flowering trees. In fact, this year I got to taste some of that honey, and it was delicious.....Mmmmmm!!! So one half of the bottle depicts that experience.

When the tree sports dense foliage, and the weather gets cooler, the nocturnal visitors appear. Noisy bats hanging upside down I have seen many a time. But what I'd really love to see is a cute little owl, with its wise face and round eyes, just like the one on this bottle.

So, on the occasion of World Environment Day today, this bottle is my ode to the Peepul tree and the creatures it is home to. Unless we care for our flora and fauna on a daily basis, what is the point of marking such days! What do you feel, dear readers?

Thanks, dear Yuvika! When it comes from personal experience(and therefore, straight from the heart), I guess it shows. :)) Loved doing a new design after many days.
