Glad I Didn't Missed ItWednesday, April 20, 2011
Guess what's the little red flower that's at the top right corner of the pic below.
It is my old miniature Rose! The plant was growing weaker and weaker before I decided to do without it. Instead of chucking it into the bin, I just planted it at a corner of a pot. As I was checking on my plants, I was surprised to see something red appearing behind my Pentas. Now I am so glad I had not just tossed it away!
The other kind of rose (but not really a rose!) in my garden is the Desert Rose that is in bloom as well.
Although the sun is sunnier these two weeks the weather is still quite bad. Anyway, I am happy to see their cheery flowers all blooming together.
The Balsam has been flowering since Chinese New Year in February. I love its long blooming habit :-)
I am really proud of the bi-colour Impatiens flowers below which have irregular patterns. It's the first two flowers since I started this plant from a cutting in mid-February.
My other Impatiens grew much taller and is still sending out blooms...
The Ruellia and Blue Daze in the pic below are the closer shots of their blooms...
Water thrifty plants meanwhile always amaze me. Victoria Fern is the latest addition to join these group of plants. It's a fern that needs less light and less water then the other ferns that I have.
Hope your plants give you some surprises today!
I contributed a post on nasi goreng (fried rice) on Wendy's new blog on Asian food, Wai Sek. It's fun to see my post published there. Hop over to find a simple fried rice recipe :-D
