Took some more shots of my ornamental plants early this morning. More greens in the garden.

Planted this a year ago as a very thin cuttings then when it bloomed, it rewarded me with a very nice and soothing scent.


I keep forgetting its name.


I know this as white grass. Do you know its scientific name?


My larged-leaf taro. It’s edible. I use it for my “laing”.


My Eugenia plant. You can shape it any way you want.


Bougainvillea flowers atop my Arius tree.


I think this still belongs to the family of Caladium.


A flowering Adenium




My prayer plants. They fold their leaves in the afternoon.


Most of them are green, my flowering plants are just the Vinca,  Zinnia, Fukien Tea, Crossandra, Bougainvillea, Bleeding Hearts, Pink Angels and Shrimp plants.

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.

    Hi arlene!

    first, your adenium is quite unique. it looks like its split from the bud, id like to thee the fully bloomed one if you can.

    second, the plant you keep forgetting the name of is syngonium.

    that last image is of a sanchezia speciosa. very lovely foliage.

      Hi Jong, long time, no hear. I don’t know why the flower is like that. Other blooms are “normal”. The pods I planted out of this plant are small seedlings now. You are a big help in identifying the plants. Do you know the name of the flowers in the first photo?

    Very nice, Arlene.
    Those big leaves look large enough to use as an umbrella! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
