Spent the early morning weeding and admiring the flowers in my garden. I have some new ones I bought yesterday. Delivery of the plants was free.
Ah, I could not get enough of the flowers in my garden. Ibwant to document every bloom. I already transferred my button plants along with the two Aster I bought a few days ago.
Finally, my Bridal Bouquet is in bloom. Tiny flowers that add to my collection of white. They actually look like my Kamuning.
Quite ashamed. I think it’s been more than a year since I posted here but you can always visit my main blog DREAMS AND ESCAPES (arlene1956.wordpress.com).
I am presently enamoured with white flowers. Aside from those I have posted here earlier, I was able to find more blooms yesterday. Here are some plants I haven’t posted here yet.
My pink Ruellia. Used it to greet the new month.
There are actually plenty more. Will upload them some other time.
Just done trimming the carabao grass early this morning. A sort of a back-breaking job since it is hard to trim the grass in between the stepping stones. I took shots of some plants but they were a bit blurred in the early morning.
I was supposed to include these photos of our garden that I took yesterday morning in my other blog but for some reason, they would not load.
I finished trimming our grass yesterday and started pruning some of the overgrown plants but haven’t finished them yet. It is so hot here.
Remember the pineapple I took shot of a few weeks ago when it was just a bud? It has grown considerably and I am just waiting for maybe two or three more months before harvesting it. Pineapples take time to reach their full maturity. Would you believe, it usually takes six months? Here’s how it looks now. It’s growing nicely.
It is always a surprise to see new blooms in the garden. I only used to have them in purple, these lovely Ruellia plants but they are now showing pink and white colors too. The seeds grow on their own. You’ll just be surprised that they grow plenty in your garden.
I have these lovely mixtures of Four O’clock, Zinnia and Vinca in one corner of the garden. They are in different shades of pink. Summer is when you can see them all abloom.
It’s been a while, and I mean the last time I updated this site was more than two months ago. I love my new phone camera. So easy to take photos. Tried it again this morning taking photos of plants thriving in the garden.
It’s nice to have a sensible 16-megapixel primary camera on your phone that you can use on those point and shoot subjects with a handy and compact phone. The truth is, I haven’t bought a replacement yet for my broken Canon Ixus camera so I am using all the three cameras on my tab and cellphones.
Going home is such a memorable thing. Even if we only stayed there overnight, I was able to visit those fruit trees some of which I helped Dad plant and nurture when he was still alive. They have a little plot for veggies now. I could no longer identify all the flowering plants growing there.
Countryside scenery that I’ve missed for so long. I brought home two jackfruits which I will cook later.
