Blessed

About three weeks ago, I removed the branches of our guava tree because it  has dried it.  All that was left was the main trunk which I cut a little too low.  I thought it was going to die but imagine my surprise when I saw new leaves atop  the main trunk and they look so healthy.

I guess I have to wait a little while before it produces fruits again. Our two jackfruit trees are  showing off. I counted the fruits all in various stages of growth, fifteen in all. Who knows, it might  still bear fruits in the coming days. I took some shots of them.

A few more days and one is ready for harvest. When you are blessed, you truly are.

Morning Blooms

It’s a lovely Tuesday morning. The sun is out and it’s shining bright. Perfect time to visit the garden.

Hydrangea

I recently bought some Mayana plant, Marigold  and a pot of blue Hydrangea. I used to grow the latter several years ago in different colors but they died because of too much heat. Now I placed it in a partial shade.

I just love the color of this Hydrangea. I wish I could propagate  more. Re-learning  how to nurture it.  No direct sunlight for this one. Just like the Marigold and Mayana, it is susceptible to  heat.

I replanted the eggplant seedlings in more pots near  my two mulberries.  To see those germinated seeds growing. Even my  bottle gourds are starting to climb the permanent trellis we have at the back of the house.

Catching Up

It’s been a while. Such a lovely weather for gardening. There was a soft breeze blowing  and it was really nice to stay in the garden.

Three days ago  I  transferred the two mulberry  cuttings  that a neighbor gave us a week ago. They are both sprouting green leaves. I also planted some okra seeds side by side with it. By the time it has grown, my okra would have died.

I bought two plastic  pots where I transferred some of my dwarf snake plants.  They are crowding my round pot where they were previously planted. They are easy maintenance  plants and do not need much watering. They are ideal for indoors.

 

Our compost  pit is now ready. The vegetable skins, weeds and leaves that we used to throw there have now turned into a rich soil  that we could use for planting.

My Eugenia

We have this Eugenia planted in our garden when we have it landscaped a year after my chemotherapy. My son trim it regularly. Every time we trim our  Fukien tea plants, he also trims it. I love it when it produces these brown shoots,(they are new leaves actually). So lovely.
