A Morning Visit at the Katipunan Garden Center

I’ve long been planning to visit the garden center to buy some ornamental but Josef is always busy with work so he could not accompany me there to buy plants.(Call it the handicap of not being able to drive, I never tried learning, that’s why). So when the hubby came home, I got myself a permanent driver, haha!It’s really a gardener’s paradise !  Go green! I could stay here all day long and just stare at the flowers.
I am planning to make a dish garden for indoor decor.  I have a spare clay pot, it  was previously used for our water fountain but since I could not find a replacement for the “buho” arrangement that was  part of the set-up, I might as well put it to good use in some other ways.
They have a sizable collection of ornamental here. So pleasing to see familiar plants that I’ve seen in Caleruega. Bulacan Gardens sells theirs a little more expensive than the rest but they have several varieties of palms, indoor plants, different sizes of clay pots and some garden decors too.This  area is still part of the Bulacan Gardens. There are several garden stores here lining up the road of Katipunan but some are so expensive. I wish I have time to go to Manila Seedling  Bank to look for some cacti plants.These are large pots of garden accessories , corner accents, different hanging plants and they  have bamboo torches  too.A feast for the eyes!  We bought a pot of bougainvellia for our corner fence, six pieces of cucharita, ruella plants (I am glad they have them in light pink and white, Kyoto grass and spotted aglonaema. The hubby looking at some ornamental – white angels, santan, agaves, aglonaema, you name it, they  have them there.

About arlene

Life starts with a beautiful dream. Life starts in somehow believing that one day you’ll get what you wished and prayed for. Life starts with something you believe you can do and dream about. My entries here are mostly about my journey as a cancer patient, a cancer survivor, a mother, a friend, and about the books I read, places I want to visit and have visited, people I want to meet someday and mostly about the daily grind of simple living. Dreams and Escapes is about having enough faith to go on, the will to live no matter how difficult life may seem sometimes and grateful appreciations of all the things one holds dear. It is about the belief that I could share a little of my journey through writing and writing is an escape for me. When things get a little too hard to bear, I put them into perspective by sharing them here. Dreams and Escapes, why not?
