Warm GreetingsSunday, January 29, 2012
I was away for a few days during the recent Chinese New Year celebration and the almost-daily evening rain was a real blessing for my plants. They were all looking pretty and happy when I came back :-)
And thanks again to my friend who has helped me take care of my plants in my absence :-D
My Hoya (I think it's a H. Pubicalyx) that I have been growing for about two years is producing its first flowers! Excited (!) but at the same time I have to wait really patiently for those little buds to take their own sweet time to bloom. Oh... please open faster!
On the other hand, this Pilea species grows and flowers freely and quickly. Just a few cuttings will set the plant growing more and more dark green leaves and tiny flowers :-)
Next to the Hoya is this Little Queen Alocasia which I have recently added to my garden (same time as the Pilea above) and I am so glad that this division has rooted well and now growing... slowly but steadily.
A little further from the Little Queen Alocasia, into the shade, is my white Azalea. The plant has been rewarding me with its wonderful blooms.
The Capsicum Cherry Time seeds that have sprouted earlier in this small pot seems to be growing well. But I got to discard a few of them (out of this little pot) before they grow bigger.
The little Fuchsia that I had posted earlier has, unfortunately, dried up fast and withered. Gosh... the plant is super fussy! Got a bigger one to replace it and seems to be doing well.
These are little flowers of my Lemon Basil. They resemble the blooms of the Chinese hat plant, hehe...
Happy gardening and Gong Xi Fa Cai to all my Chinese friends!
