Hoya kerrii gave me a big surprise with its flower! I must have too many plants in my garden nowadays coz I didn't even noticed it was there till I saw a fully blossomed flower a few days ago...
The Hoya Diversifolia that I posted in earlier post has however not blossomed yet. But I saw many other flower buds flourishing one by one and I am so happy about this result. This hoya was propagated using its stem cutting about one-and-a-half years ago.
I have been constantly triming my bougainvillea (pic below) into a ball shape. I can't wait for it to flower! And I hope it will flower before another prolonged rain. Else, the leaves might start to disappear again...
I found a healthy looking Maranta last week. I hope the pattern will not disappear like the Keampferia in my rather hot shade garden ;-)
My dwarf Plumeria turned out to be a giant! It was grown from seed in October 2009. Now I have to tie it to the fence to prevent it from tumbling down during windy days. Planning to re-pot it after the plant flowers. Anyway I saw a stalk of flowers buds already :-D
Also I am glad to see my Chalice Vine re-growing lushier foliages after the plant sheded all its leaves last month after a prolonged rain.
I love to see returning blooms. They make the garden really lively.
