Garden Blooms

It was one of those mornings when you just can’t help but hold garden scissors in your hands. Some of my plants needed trimming so I spent the early morning replanting some plants too. The morning would not be complete without taking a few shots. I always document every bloom, something to think about when summer is gone.

The front garden bathed in early morning sunlight. I love those pocket of shadows that an early morning brings.

A row of my Crossandra blooms in one corner of the garden. I love these flowers because they self-propagate and I just uproot some of them to transfer to this corner.

I trimmed this Eugenia shrub two weeks ago, look at the new leaves. it's rather colorful, orange on green.

All these years I thought they are simply called butterfly plants. It is only now that I've learned that they are Shamrocks.

Shamrocks...I have them in purple and green. I do love combining tehm together in small pots. They are best as hanging plants and just like Crossandra, they are self-propagating.

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?

      Thank you, it’s just small but still hard to maintain especially the carabao grass that needs trimming at least once a month. Have a nice day too 🙂
