A Neat Garden (Really!)Thursday, December 10, 2009
A trip back to Ipoh recently, gave me the opportunity to introduce to you the garden where many of my plants come from. This garden belongs to my sister-in-law, Janice.
If you observe closely, you would definitely agree with me that it is quite an extra-ordinary garden, especially for those who stay in terrace houses in Malaysia :-D
Other than the bed of plants infront of the house, the rest of the plants are in containers.
Janice loves orchids. The orchids (pics below) were all in bloom at the same time when I was there!
She has so many varieties of orchids and most of them are hung onto this shade that's built in the house compound. Below the orchids are many ornamental ferns and allies.
Plus a little pond for aquatic plants...
Some attractive spillers on the wall and other beautiful ferns along the same side.
I can see that Petunia is her other passion. She mentioned that the light purple/pink one (the one at background of the second pic) is the easiest to grow. Ok, I know what kind of Petunia a beginner should grow ;-)
Here is a collage of some of her plants and garden ornaments.
Maybe one day my garden will look as wonderful as Janice's.
