Mumbai state of Mind

Genevieve McElroy, puts me in a Mumbai state of mind.

Its been a deluge of torrential rains this last weekend in Mumbai, and that picture translates into a wonderful kaleidescope of the Mumbaikars mind.

Its glorious, the rains, the weather, sometimes dull with deep blues in our mood and grey skies.

Many times the monsoon weather makes nature glorious in Mumbai. Flowers bloom everywhere, and the thirsting tress used to traffic fumes of Mumbai, suddenly start breathing a brightness that translates into the bright pink of Genevieve’s flower palette above, making the bright pink shifting to the pure white cineriras flowers a smooth transition, Just like Mumbai makes it transition from dullness to cheer.

Flowers really do convey emotions in myriad ways, this is so evident from the glorious flowers on display above, floating in a bowl of waer, floating like our dreams do on a wet, dull, blue yet clean and bright monsoon Mumbai weekend.

Your Florist featured in the Femina

“The best way to keep flowers fresher longer is to make sure they are kept in a container with clean’ water. Please ensure, that you change the water daily and cut off the sodden stem at the base, this will ensure that the water remains bacteria free and the flower can actually drink’ the clean water,” says India’s premier floral designer Laxmi Lobo of Spring Blossoms, Mumbai.

• “The best way to keep flowers fresher longer is to make sure they are kept in a container with clean’ water. Please ensure, that you change the water daily and cut off the sodden stem at the base, this will ensure that the water remains bacteria free and the flower can actually drink’ the clean water,” says India‘s premier floral designer Laxmi Lobo of Spring Blossoms, Mumbai. “Put 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of bleach in a quart of warm water. The acid from the lemon ensures an improved water flow in flower stems, sugar helps buds open and last longer, and the bleach is a preservative to reduce growth of bacteria.”

Design Tips
Laxmi provides priceless styling tips to help you plan your flower decoration in terms of space and accessories.

• Keep in mind the space you have around the floral display before you plan a large or small display and where you want to place it.

• Since flowers are inherently beautiful, do not add so many embellishments that you take away from the flowers’ natural beauty.

• The container that you use for your floral display is as important as the flowers you choose. Tall containers can be dramatic with few flowers whereas multi•coloured containers will look nicer if the flowers are all of a single colour.

• The background of your floral display has to be considered when designing with flowers. If there is lot of movement behind the floral display, like a hotel display or a passageway at home, then a monochromatic theme will attract the viewers’ eye. A background can be enhanced with brightly coloured runners on a dinner table setting; this will make a white floral display look stunning.

• “While decorating with flowers at home for a party that will last late into the night or go on till the wee hours of the morning, choose sturdy flowers like Orchids and Anthuriums rather than hollow stem Gerbera Daisies,” suggests Laxmi. This will ensure your flowers look as fresh as when the guests came in.

Flower Rangoli for Onam in India

Thiru Onam (from Sravana?) is celebrated in the second half of August (the Chingam month of Kollam Era) when the August monsoon rains come to an end and the summer heat gives way to the pleasant warmth of the Kerala autumn. Anthropologists see in Onam a great fertility rite, the ceremony of Thanksgiving for a plentiful harvest. For Keralites Onam is the celebration of the return of Mahabali, their once and future king. This king once ruled over the Keralites during the Golden Age before caste existed, “when all men were equal, when no one was poor, when there was neither theft nor dread of thieves”

The celebration of the return of Mahabali takes four days for the Hindus. The house and yard are cleaned; a temporary mud stall is put up and washed with cow-dung solution for the royal visitor; flowers are strewn over it for the king to sit upon; pyramid-shaped images of the king called Trikkakarappan, made of wood or clay, are placed upon it as the onlookers applaud and cheer in sheer welcome. Pujas (worship service) are performed during the four days of Onam every morning; parents give children presents, especially dresses on the occasion. Large scale feasts are held at this family reunion — increasingly Onam is becoming a holiday like Thanksgiving which is characterized by family reunion and feasting. The Flower design or Rangoli above is a typical way of dressing the home and the places of worship.

The Flower Rangoli below is made to look like a flower. Various patterns of Flower Rangoli are made with passion and creativity.

Flower petals in various hues and colours are used. The flower rangoli pattern is first sketcked with a white chalk paste and then the petals of various local flowers are filled in.

Festive Garlands in Mumbai

My friend Arun Shanbag has caught the splendour of the festive garlands in the Mumbai flower market. (every picture leads you to his wonderful blog)

This flower market in Mumbai is where, all of mumbai comes to purchase the wonderfully entwined flowers which we mumbaikars call garlands to annoint our Lord, the Elephant God Ganapati or Ganesha with.

The Lord Ganesh is venerated all across India. In Mumbai this festival is particularly heralded with Ganapati Pandals all across the city. The Lord is on every street corner, the festival is a public festival and the community celebrates, different from most other festivals which are celebrated only in the homes.

These festive flower garlands are made of rose petals, strung together in a unique way.

The stringing of garlands is done by hand, entwining thread with the little flowers, sometimes using petals in a formation using flower needles.

The flower sellers entire lifestyle fits into this little cubicle. Notice the clothes and the pictures of deities he worships, the flower seller lives out of this box, even his accounts and cash drawer is in this space.

This double layered spaces shows us how very effectively 6 people can sit and make flower garlands.Its the spirit of Mumbai, always short on space, innovating and with the entrepreneurial ‘never say die’ Mumbaikar who is showcased in this photograph.

Traditional Lilies used for garlands hang side by side with the blue orchids from Thailand. It seems even Lord Ganesh is enthralled by the imported orchids.

The Mumbai Flower market is a sight to behold, if your in Mumbai at any festive time its a sure tourist destination. Best time to to go to the market to take photographs is around 5 pm when the crowds are less and the lighting is perfect.

Why send Flowers?

There are special occasions and holidays which give you the excuse to send a relative or close friend flowers just to let them know that you are thinking of them.

This is especially appropriate if you haven’t written to them or spoken to them on the phone for some time.

In most cases, a surprise gift of flowers will invariably result in a joyous telephone call from the receiver of the gift.

A telephone call is the only way to thank someone for a gift …

pineapple

Jasmine infused syrup
pineapple

pineapple

Place sugar, water, and cloves in a large pot; bring to a gentle boil.
Add the pineapple pieces to the syrup, bring the mixture to a gentle boil once more, reduce the heat to a low simmer, and allow to cook, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let the pineapple cool completely in the syrup. Do not cover the pot.
Once the mixture has cooled completely, take out the pineapple pieces and cloves. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer.
Stir the jasmine flowers into the strained syrup and let the mixture infuse at room temperature for about 2-3 hours, then strain out and discard the flowers. If you don’t have jasmine flowers, simply add the jasmine extract to the syrup and you’re done.

Create a Lemon Vase arrangement

Its very easy to line a vase with lemon to bring the zesty fragrance of lemons to your floral display.

Take a large cylindrical vase and add to it a small one in the center.

Pack the gap with well cut thick slices of lemon.

Now your ready to add flowers to the center vase.

Contrasting colours look fabulous on a bright sunny day and equally lovely to bring cheer to a dull monsoon day.

Hand carved Soap Flowers

These beautiful images above are soap carvings. They are delicatetly carved by hand in Thailand.

This is an old art form in Thailand, slowly dying out.

I cam across a blog that give you more insights into this industry.

This dying art of making hand carved soap flowers originated in what was known as the little village in northern Thailand of Chiang Rai. The people from the village started carving these soaps as a hobby. Soon the true artist developed it into a successful business to support their families.

All the photos and the video is the work of gifted artist Patcharin Thanomworakul.

The container itself is a work of art. She does not make these but each one is handmade from mango trees, which are plentiful here in northern Thailand.

Heard of foul smelling Flowers?

You thought that flowers always smell fragrant, some of these Tropical flowers are seriously foul smelling.

The smell is like dead flesh and vomit inducing.

Can we call these flowers?

Take a look.

voodoo-lily

It’s a beautiful pink flower but don’t let its good looks fool you. The Voodoo Lily is related to the same family as the Calla Lily, but unlike its popular relative, you should avoid the use of this flower in your floral arrangements. It emits a disgusting rotting flesh odor, which help attract flies and other pollinators, but it won’t help you attract any friends!

rafflesia-arnoldii

The Corpse flower is rare and considered endangered. The buds take months to develop and the flower only last for a few days. Found in the rainforests of Indonesia. It emits a strong odor of decaying flesh.

titan-arum-e1344616815671The titan arum can reach heights of 10 feet or more, making it one of the largest and stinkiest flowers in the world. Even though this gigantic flower stinks like decaying flesh and rotten eggs, people having been making trips around the world to see this flower bloom. It’s a rare sighting.

Living Embroidery with Flowers

dress

 

This is a real flower wedding dress from the “living embroidery collection” from Zita Eleze.

This an absolutely brilliant and creative wedding dress, quite rarely does something take your breath away and this living flower dress is indefinably one of those moments.

“The skirt and trains of the dress were made of little bunches of stipa – this is a grass that is very soft and feels like fur.

The little bunches of grass were then glued onto the silk organza material. The bodice was built up with the same garments used for a normal wedding dress. The little flowers, seeds, and leaves were glued to the bodice giving the impression of a fine embroidery…”

bag

Love it, its brilliant, you can actually be a flower fairy on your wedding day 🙂 and the Parasol below is really my most favorite, it complements the whole attire and its surely a flower fairy weeding in summer.

Lightweeds

An installation by Simon Heijdens that traces and amplifies the leftovers of nature in the urban surrounding.

White silhouettes of trees projected 8 meters high onto the facades of several buildings in a city.

Its branches and leaves are moving either slightly or intense; directly to the measured wind that passes the facade of the building on which it is projected.

Starting full of leaves at dawn, the tree looses one of its leaves each time someone passes it. When the leaf breaks of its branch, it drops down on the ground in an alley nearby. Because the leaves are made of light, they slowly brighten up the alley as they grow in amount over the course of the evening, and form a developing image that reveals the use of the city. The leaves roll out when someone walks through them.

The concept is a wonderful juxtaposition of nature in an Urban Landscape using the human mind and imagination with technology.

Heijdens’s plants have life cycles and botanic structures, and they respond to outside weather by way of sensors installed on the building’s roof. The sensors measure temperature, wind, and humidity, and a computer translates this data into growth of the projected plants. “The projected silhouettes are alive; from a digital seed that, in numbers, contains the genetic data of its family,” says Heijdens. “A seed drops into the projection, grows and is affected by actual measured rainfall and sunshine; it moves in the real wind; and throughout the day, it turns to follow the sun.”

A living digital organism growing onto an indoor space, through which the space regains the natural timeline that it has walled out.

Uniquely generated plant families that grow up, move and behave closely depending on actual sunshine, rainfall and wind as measured live outside. On passing human traffic they bend, loose their seeds and pollinate to other walls throughout the space, to make up a constantly evolving bio system that reveals the character of the space and how its used.

When unpredictable natural elements such as a lifting breeze, a sudden shower, or a setting sun are planned out of our surroundings, the timeline of our everyday is lost.

The above installations and the wondrous nature combined with human technology are simply fabulous art installations.

Me, I’m a floral designer, nature fascinates me, and how we use nature to add beauty to our lives everyday is what I love doing.
