Yesterday, I had an early morning visit to the garden. I pruned our Arius tree, trimmed my Kamuning plants and repotted some that I bought two months ago. Then I took these photos.
One of Nissa’s gifts during my birthday is this lovely plant called Rattlesnake Calathea (the one in the middle). It is commonly called prayer plant. I have another variety of this in my garden.
I didn’t even know that this could be used as indoor plant. I transferred and repotted some plants yesterday. The garden is doing good.
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.
How my garden looks now. My pigeon pea plants (kadyos) are growing nicely at the back garden. I planted a lone avocado seed in a pot two months ago, it is now more than a foot tall. Since I don’t have anymore space to plant another avocado tree, maybe I’ll just send it to the province.
The sun is peeking in amidst the lush blue ternatea vines.
My mulberry tree is as tall as I am now. Jom, our neighbor gave it as a twig a few months ago.
And the bleeding hearts are blooming again. I have to trim some branches because they are climbing my jackfruit tree.
More flowers…my blue ternatea. Gonna make tea drinks out of these later.
My lone okra which was left from the previous planting.
Taro leaves…anyone? They are so tall and robust.
Gardening is such a joy when you see those blooms. They make you smile.
It’s been a while. Such a lovely weather for gardening. There was a soft breeze blowing and it was really nice to stay in the garden.
Three days ago I transferred the two mulberry cuttings that a neighbor gave us a week ago. They are both sprouting green leaves. I also planted some okra seeds side by side with it. By the time it has grown, my okra would have died.
I bought two plastic pots where I transferred some of my dwarf snake plants. They are crowding my round pot where they were previously planted. They are easy maintenance plants and do not need much watering. They are ideal for indoors.
Our compost pit is now ready. The vegetable skins, weeds and leaves that we used to throw there have now turned into a rich soil that we could use for planting.
I so love my tab, it is so easy to point and click, capture some blooms and freeze them forever. Mom says she likes all the flowers blooming in our small garden.
A few days ago, I blogged about this, newly planted. My purple shamrock. I have this in green but they are in bigger pots.
I love the pink ones though. I also have them in white.
It’s been a while since I took pictures of our garden. Last weekend, we had the roof and the perimeter fence repainted and the two painters left extra paint so I retouched our grotto and our concrete garden set. Then I noticed this, my Amazon lily is in bloom again. Can’t wait to see the white scented blooms.
The only flowers growing here now are my crossandra, bleeding hearts, pink angel flowers and my shrimp plants. The two jackfruit trees are laden with fruits though.
Two weeks ago, Josef and I chanced upon some fresh Basil at Pasig market, tried planting a small shoot, I was surprised it is pleasantly thriving.
You’ll probably think these are variegated oregano but they’re not. One of the painters we hired last weekend accidentally dropped a small can of paint while retouching our roof, short of cutting all the leaves with the paint smear, I’ll just wait for it to grow again. I have plenty of them behind the house anyway.
I’ve missed taking pics and these are my latest shots.
