Yesterday, I had an early morning visit to the garden. I pruned our Arius tree, trimmed my Kamuning plants and repotted some that I bought two months ago. Then I took these photos.
One of Nissa’s gifts during my birthday is this lovely plant called Rattlesnake Calathea (the one in the middle). It is commonly called prayer plant. I have another variety of this in my garden.
I didn’t even know that this could be used as indoor plant. I transferred and repotted some plants yesterday. The garden is doing good.
Spent the early morning weeding and admiring the flowers in my garden. I have some new ones I bought yesterday. Delivery of the plants was free.
Ah, I could not get enough of the flowers in my garden. Ibwant to document every bloom. I already transferred my button plants along with the two Aster I bought a few days ago.
Finally, my Bridal Bouquet is in bloom. Tiny flowers that add to my collection of white. They actually look like my Kamuning.
Quite ashamed. I think it’s been more than a year since I posted here but you can always visit my main blog DREAMS AND ESCAPES (arlene1956.wordpress.com).
I am presently enamoured with white flowers. Aside from those I have posted here earlier, I was able to find more blooms yesterday. Here are some plants I haven’t posted here yet.
My pink Ruellia. Used it to greet the new month.
There are actually plenty more. Will upload them some other time.
Every now and then, a papaya seedling grows in our backyard garden but it never reaches that stage where it would bear flowers until now.
I love papaya for the simple reason that the green fruit is best in our Filipino recipe called tinola. Tinola is best with chicken cutlets sauteed in onions, garlic and ginger. You add sliced papaya when the chicken is almost done then you can also add fresh moringa leaves and green pepper. Simmer until everything is cooked.
I took some shots of our lone papaya tree bearing flowers and it is fruiting at last.
The lovely flower of the tree.
Look at that, the young fruit is just a bud.
Our two kitties at peace with the world beneath the papaya tree.
After the heavy rain last night, my garden is happy. Good thing I transferred my six pots of Adenium in the shade so they were not saturated. They love the sun and require once-a-week watering.
I have dwarf Snake plants in a big rounded pot but they have grown so I transferred some of them direct to the soil. Put some in bigger pots and I had one planted in this little vase to put inside the house.
Do you know that “the Snake Plant cleans air better than most other indoor plants as it has the ability to absorb excessive amounts of carbon monoxide? Additionally, it emits oxygen and filters other toxins from the air such as benzene, xylene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde”.
A few days ago, I harvested green chili peppers and left two to ripen. They just did and I planted them today. We use these for our…

I visited the garden yesterday and early this morning. Took some photos of the flowers thriving there at the moment. Those tiny white blooms are a joy to behold along with the purple and pink flowers.
I am posting some here.
Don’t you just love staying in the garden for a while and admiring those blooms. I do.
Commonly known to us as Sansevieria ot mother-in-law’s tongue. There are around seventy species of snake plants all native to tropical and sub-tropical regions.
I only have two varieties in my garden now. I have lots of the dwarf ones. It used to be that these plants are just ignored by some gardeners but lately, this has become a prized plant in one’s garden. Most pots are sold by the hundred and even thousands.

You could use them indoors, even in your bedrooms.
