Spring Is Almost Here.....and So Is A New Tamil Portal




Photos of the tree in my yard which heralds the onset of spring. The pink blooms erupt first from the buds in the branches and then slowly fall off making way for the leaves. The whole display lasts only for a couple of weeks but we eagerly anticipate it every year! See how the flowers are almost out of their buds..

On another note, sometime back we had started an Essence of Kerala Cuisine site for referencing all the various Kerala recipes blogged so far. Revathi and Prema have similarly indexed the Tamil recipes from the bloggers into a Tamil Cuisine Site making it easier for someone searching through the familar and unfamiliar recipes in different sites. (No more trying to remember whether the recipe I liked was a kuzhambu or poriyal and then going through all the sites I know.)
Any blogger posting authentic Tamil recipes can send the links to them at the new site.


Hmm.. Now who is going to make the other portals?

Mixed reactions , i see.. the ones who alreadyhave the heat, yearn for the cooler weather and the ones in the northern hemisphere look forward to getting rid of the heavy jackets!!

spring is beautiful.. as my son says some days the spring is winning against the winter.
