How has your week been? Well, thanks to my friend Julia who has helped me water my plants while I was away during the CNY break... otherwise many plants would have been dead already, hehe...
The first thing I noticed was my dwarf Dahlia. A flower has blossomed! And it is bigger than when I first bought it :-D
I was thrilled to see the first flower of Angelonia. Earlier, the plant was yellowing at the bottom as it was raining non-stop. I am glad that it survived!
Growing next to Angelonia, and in the same pot, is Balsam. The plants grew so fast! They took only about a month to grow from seeds to flowers :-D
I brought home these two Azaleas. They are in the shade now as I learnt that they do not like the sun. I just hope that they will be able to adapt well in my rather hot shade (any tips?). The flowers look like they are made of tissue - soft and nice!
Hibiscus Red Shield is about three months old now and has grown to about two feet high. The little flower bud signals that flower is on the way ;-)
The plant has only one branch at the moment. I plan to discard the top (after flowering) to make way for more branches and foliages. But I hope the plant is not too short to be pruned. Should I wait till it's taller?
Here is a big dark begonia. I didn't realise the leaves can grow to be so huge when I first got it (it was just a little plant then!). This begonia loves the shade. Anyone recognise this begonia?
This is the cutest little shrub - Poinsettia. The plant has regrown since a cut back and now looking very green, hehe...
Plants are simply delightful!
