Holiday BloomsWednesday, September 07, 2011
It was one long, busy period as people across Malaysia celebrated two major occasions (Merdeka Day and Hari Raya) last week.
I was out of town for a few days and attended a short conference upon coming back. Was quite tired but now I am really glad that I can go back to writing about my usual stuffs :-)
My Balsam and Lantana produced lots of flowers...
I am experiencing a happy problem with my Lantana this time round. I just couldn't find the right time to prune the plant to make it shorter. It kept fourishing flowers :-D
Notice the imperfect leave in above picture? It was probably chomped by a grasshopper. This insect is the current menace in my garden. It loves to eat flowers as well :-(
Fortunately my yellow Hibiscus flowers were spared...
My Rex Begonias were also flowering. Their yellow centres look like the yolk of a sunny side up egg... cute right?
Meanwhile I'm glad that I was able find time to check out some nurseries too. I found a cheerful Smooth Aster and a fascinating Green Shrimp plant...
Hope you have had a great holiday/week too. Happy blogging... and happy Merdeka Day and Selamat Hari Raya!
