Blessed

About three weeks ago, I removed the branches of our guava tree because it  has dried it.  All that was left was the main trunk which I cut a little too low.  I thought it was going to die but imagine my surprise when I saw new leaves atop  the main trunk and they look so healthy.

I guess I have to wait a little while before it produces fruits again. Our two jackfruit trees are  showing off. I counted the fruits all in various stages of growth, fifteen in all. Who knows, it might  still bear fruits in the coming days. I took some shots of them.

Happy Wednesday

The rocks behind and in front of  this very small Mayana stem used to be a design  of a long  rectangular flat  pot   for my Bonsai Juniper but after only about three years, it died on me.  I don’t know how to take care of Bonsai plants.

Our compost pit is now ready for use. The lower part is just right to use for planting, the leaves and veggie peelings have turned into a rich soil.  Since I don’t   have extra pots for my remaining …

Morning Blooms

It’s a lovely Tuesday morning. The sun is out and it’s shining bright. Perfect time to visit the garden.

Hydrangea

I recently bought some Mayana plant, Marigold  and a pot of blue Hydrangea. I used to grow the latter several years ago in different colors but they died because of too much heat. Now I placed it in a partial shade.

I just love the color of this Hydrangea. I wish I could propagate  more. Re-learning  how to nurture it.  No direct sunlight for this one. Just like the Marigold and Mayana, it is susceptible to  heat.

I replanted the eggplant seedlings in more pots near  my two mulberries.  To see those germinated seeds growing. Even my  bottle gourds are starting to climb the permanent trellis we have at the back of the house.
