It is fun to watch how Amaranthus takes on new colours. Its foliage colouration change a little from day to day. When it was a tiny plant, the leaves were green, then they turned bronze and now the new leaves are turning red and yellow.
Little flowers with pretty colours here and there makes my garden not so boring.

I am surprised that my Oxalis started to produce several blooms. The plant seems to has just woken up after a long rest...
Next to the Oxalis is a Pilea Involucrata, which I now realise is as striking as the former.
I marvel at the sight of this green Acerola as I just spotted its fruit (pic below). I must have missed seeing the flower earlier!
This short strand of yellow bracts and flower of Nong Nooch can be a good inspiration for a craft project ;-)
I have waited this moment for a long time... my Hoya is going to flower soon :-D
These are tiny white blooms of Sweet Basil. Funny to find ants there. The flowers must be really sweet, hehe...
My Polka Dot Plant with its pretty leaves meanwhile has grown much taller since I bought it. I place the plant near my kitchen window once in a while or when the plant looks dull. Otherwise, the plant is placed in my living hall. But I wonder why its new leaves crinkle up?!
My Tacca has been doing pretty well except that its old leaves tend to turn yellow and its flowers kept growing sideways.
Some plants are just not the same as they look in pictures on the Internet. I hope this Tacca plant will give me an upright stalk of flower soon ;-)
