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.

Can't wait for these buds to bloom :)

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!

About arlene

It's been some years since I started this blog. Supposedly, it was only to share my plight as a cancer patient and survivor but over the years it has somehow evolved into something personal about my life and my family. So really glad to have met you all wonderful people out there. Someone commented once that he liked the title of this blog, Dreams and Escapes. Dream on, there are more things in life than we really think. Be happy, you only live once. Sometimes you also need an escape from the vicissitudes of life and this blog helps me cope. Welcome. Feel free to leave your comments, I do welcome them.
