Rainy Days And Mondays

I stand guilty! I’ve neglected this blog for quite sometime now and to make up for it, I just re-blog some of my posts from my main blog from time to time. Gosh, it is hard to maintain four blogs at the same time.  You always seem to favor that particular blog where you get visitors and comments. I am not complaining though because I am trying to lessen posting pictures at Dreams and Escapes, I only have 35% more on the allowed limits while this one needs a little lift and update.

Just visited my garden blooms after the rain. It was quite a surprise to see new blooms. I could not resist taking a few shots. It’s been a while since I posted garden pics.

I planted these dainty rain lilies as ground covers in between my rounded Fukien tea plants.  Some are planted in small pots  and they are all in bloom.

Can you see all those buds and flowers? This is my lovely pink Hoya.

Ah, my pink-striped lily ready to show its face. I replanted this just a month ago.

They add a bit of life to the garden.

It’s nice to be back and share my garden finds. I guess it’s time to take hold of my camera again and take a few shots. Look what I’ve found.

I didn’t plant this  tomato shrub but just saw it growing side by side with our peanut grass at the front garden. It was a delight to see these green  tomatoes waiting to ripen. Something comes to mind, botanically speaking, tomatoes are fruits  but we consider them vegetables. How’s that again? I am getting confused.

Our two jackfruit trees are laden with fruits growing in almost every tip of each branch. The sad thing though, not all of them will grow big at all.  Mom says the fruits with smooth skin are the  ones that would  ripen and grow big, the rest will just dry up and fall. Every morning, I would count the fruits, can’t wait to harvest some  in a  month or two.

One thing I love about our calamansi trees (we have two) are the scents of the flowers. Calamansi or Philippine lime bear fruits all year round and they are perfect in almost any dish that need a little spicing up. They could be used to  marinate meat or as sauces for grilled or fried food.  Ripe fruits are excellent  as juices too.

Not to be left behind are my pink Bougainvillea.  I just love the pink blooms.
