Seeing Is Believing

I feel guilty.

For several months now,  I’ve neglected updating this blog. All I got to show were some reblogged posts  from my main blog here at WordPress. I’ve finally finished trimming, weeding and replanting  – the whole rigmarole of maintaining  a small garden. Of course, this post won’t be complete without some pictures I recently took of the flowers growing there. No  matter how small a garden is, it takes much of your time but it is always a delight for those lovely surprises that  it  brings.

I took this close-up shot early this morning. Would love to document everything here. Months from now, when it blooms again,  I would remember this, the time I wondered how the flowers would look, the times I repeatedly looked out of the window to admire it. Gosh, i’m crazy  when it comes to flowers 🙂

Oh, there is a bonus.

His name is Noki.

His name is Noki.

This is Noki, a gift from a friend. He is a half-bred Labrador/Japanese Spitz. So playful and naughty. When I’m in the garden, he would inch his big body near our fence and bark his lungs out at the passersby.  I also just harvested more than a kilo of Calamansi (Philippine lime) and gave some to our neighbors.

The joys of gardening…..so priceless!
