There are too many things to be done these days but good thing the weather has been quite moderate. I don't have to water as frequently as I used to. Also I didn't feed my plants as frequently.
Well, that is why not many plants are blooming. Many are growing more foliage - taller and bushier only. A few however are good in giving me some excitement. For example, in the evenings I like to catch my Oxalis going to sleep :-)
Every now and then, out of the blue, the Monocostus uniflorus will send out a bloom or two. It is a delight to see its yellow flowers. The colour was so cheery and attractive at the same time.
So is my Gloxinia. This red and white one, though the bloom is not that big this time I was just over the moon when it blossomed for it has not been flowering well for some time already. Love its alluring colours!
The Black Bat Flower has not been resting at all! The plant has been sending out endless stalk of 'bats'. I am so amazed by its productivity. It's really scary!!
This purplish Torenias that I have in my garden has been 'working hard', re-sowing itself ever since I started gardening many moons ago! Though it behaves like weeds, I still like it as it has super cute blooms :-D
I am surprised that the hypertufa technique is easy to follow. Want to know how to make them? Click here.
To be happy for a lifetime, plant a garden!
