“It was such a pleasure to sink one’s hands into the warm earth, to feel at one’s fingertips the possibilities of the new season.” – Kate Morton
Such a shame! I only have about ninety posts here (this one is the 91st). I think this is the most neglected of all my five blogs here on WordPress. Anyway, I am again sharing some new blooms and newly planted ones in my small garden. Took all these shots from my tab so some are a bit grainy.
This plant is attractive when the young leaves have that orange hue, the leaves change back to all green as they mature.
I am thinking of uprooting this shrub altogether then have some stems replanted. It is growing wild but the flowers are just lovely.
Aren’t they lovely? They are my dwarf plumeria. I bought a little pot three years ago and it is nicely flowering. It is summer and the plants love the heat.
Josef bought me two of this last Sunday on our way to Church. It’s a cross between a fern and a palm but I don’t know its exact name. Come December, it might be big enough to use as Christmas tree in the garden.
Grown from seed, this blackberry is nicely thriving in the sun. I have five of this. a friend sent me some seeds a year ago. I wanted to plant them all but I don’t have enough space in the garden so they are just behind the house where they enjoy early morning sun.
And this is another surprise, my sweet-scented Gardenia. This is an early bloom since my lone shrub usually produces flowers during the month of May.
Our two Jackfruit trees are bearing fruits again. We have about nine big fruits now. Last month, I picked two young ones and cooked them in coconut cream. There are still so many small buds growing in all the branches. I hope they would mature like these.
And the nice surprise? Look! Josef discovered them only yesterday because they were covered by our potted Bromeliad. They are growing directly from the ground on a small branch sharing a small space with our other plants. I have to transfer some pots so they could breathe.
The joys of gardening, it really made my morning.
