Delightful

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

A plant wilted as I watered too much but am glad there are many others that could withstand my careless watering last week :-P I didn't realise that while it was hot (the afternoons were cloudy actually), some plants would not like it if the soil is too wet. 



Peace lily is one of the air-filtering plants in NASA Clean Air Study. The plant improves air quality. My pot of Peace Lily is now flowering profusely in my porch, 10 blooms all together. I am liking the plant a lot more now! :-D




I was delighted to see mulberries but couldn't wait to harvest these unripened fruits. I have to do so before the birds come feasting on them! Wonder why the birds are so hungry. The fruits will taste sour when they are still red you know?



It is easy to grow a Mulberry but the plant attracts mealybugs! Can you see one in pic below... yikes! But good thing they don't eat up the fruit ;-)



On the bright side, my dazzling white Plumbago flowers were looking quite attractive against the dark foliage of Coleus and Althernanthera dentata 'Purple Knight'. I couldn't resist taking a picture or two of the flowers. 

They look prettier in real... ;-)



Newly bought but has past its prime, the yellow blooms of Roses Forever Mini Rose graced my porch for a few days before they faded. 



Roses being roses, they look really sweet and charming even in yellow :-)



As always, my Aster laevis flowers (my sunshines!!) never fail to bring a smile to my face. The flowers are still in the garden even as I am typing now... 



Kaempferia pulchra flowers are purple as well but in a pastel shade and soft looking. Lovely, lovely :-)



My old African Violet has wilted and the one in the pic below is the replacement. I have never grown tired looking at this petite plant. The plant is so adorable!! I must have at least one in my house at any time :)



Happy gardening :-D

    1. That is why I eat those mulberries almost immediately, Endah. But as you can see, these fruits of mine are not that big so every time it will be just a small bite ;-)

  3. I really love aster but untill now still don't have a chance to plant it. I wonder why those nursery in my home town are not selling this kampung aster. Last time, my late mother plant three colors pink, purple & white aster in a broken pail. So sweet.
