What’s In A Garden (Part 2)
I can’t believe it’s only 9:30am. I’ve been awake since 4am and it feels like the hours seem longer and stretching to boredom so I grabbed my camera and took a few pictures of our small garden. I love the uniform length of the newly cut carabao grass. It’s been a while since I updated this blog.
I must admit it’s hard sometimes to trim those Fukien tea plants and make a perfect round shape out of them.
That jar is almost as old as I am. A gift from an old aunt in the province.
These are my prayer plants. Its leaves fold at night and unfold early in the morning. Prayer plants need light but they should be put in partial shade.
This is my lone Gardenia shrub. It has several buds in almost every tip ready to unfurl.
My dainty pink Begonia.
This is called Sagilala or more commonly known as San Francisco plant/Buenavista. This shrub is perfect as border and it is so easy to grow from cuttings.
It’s a cheese plant. The first time I’ve seen this in our garden in Pangasinan, I thought the leaves were cut into several shapes but that’s the way they look.
My African Rose. It blooms all year round.
My Ruellia plants in colors of white, purple and pink. They are also known as wild Petunia.
