It is always my intention to grow something special, something colourful and something edible in my garden. This time round, although the weather is a bit chaotic, I had them all at one time. I get to enjoy the colours, textures and even eat the produce of my plants.
After several months of growing the roses that I bought from the pasar tani (farmers market), I can safely say that they can really outshine other flowers. Firstly, their colours are very vivid and the rose plant itself is rather prolific. Their blooms are especially marvellous as they not only unfolds to blooms with many petals, they exude fragrant as well.
Well, this one is not Ros Kampung but Roses Forever miniature roses. They look really brilliant and sweet when blossoming.
Yellow roses under the hot sun :)
Glad to see all the rose buds opened up nicely...
This red rose has always been blossoming small-sized blooms. Given by a friend, I believe that the size of the flower at the time of purchase was much bigger than these two. Otherwise my friend may not have bought it ;)
Desert rose bear cheerful flowers.
This yellow desert rose is my favourite :)
The Hibiscus acetosella 'Red Shield' is sending out long stems with lots of flowers buds. The flowers are sweet to look at in the morning.
Strangely, this time around, they either open in pairs or triplets, making the flowers overly desirable. Ants love them too!!
My old pink dwarf Ixora is often in bloom. It began re-blooming last week.
These two Rose of Sharons are small compared with those which have blossomed.
This hibiscus has been flowering wonderfully. The plant has been throwing out a succession of flowers for weeks.
Yummy treat from my garden - radish soup!
Have a great week!
