Time To Garden Again

Promises broken and often neglected. How’s that again, you ask? I promised myself that I would at least update this blog by posting once a month but two months are gone with nary a few words.

Anyway, I think the rainy season has officially started so I need to overhaul  my garden before it gets drenched by so much water. It rains every day now, sometimes at different times of the day and night.  One good thing that we won’t have to do is to maintain cleaning our outside garden with overgrown weeds. The subdivision finally decided to cement some portions of the sidewalk so two sides of my perimeter wall is now concrete but I asked them to leave space to plant shrubs and some low maintenance plants.

Three days ago, I started replanting some of my prayer plants, they have now occupied a row beneath my lone Gardenia. They get the morning sun though so it’s okay.  Yesterday, I removed the dead roots of some plants we planted before and it was  quite hard to do it. At least now, I could plant a few annuals which are easy to grow.

I started trimming the carabao grass very early this morning bu the sudden rain ruined my day. When the rain stopped, the sun was hot on my back so I have to postpone gardening again until maybe late this afternoon (if it does not rain). I took a couple of photos. They are not as good as those I normally take with my camera.

I still have to arrange those pebbles and rocks later.  At least my prayer plants are all thriving well. By the way, on the center is a seven-pot planter container made of terracotta. I bought it several years ago but forgot all about it.

garden two

I planted it with several colors of Portulaca (Vietnam Rose) and a purple shamrock. There are more things to do, more plants to repot and transfer. I wonder if the two sacks of gardening soil would be enough.

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.
