Colour ExplosionThursday, August 11, 2016
While my blue plumbago has withered, this white one remains strong. The little bush has been flowering non-stop for about two months now. I am so glad this is happening :-)
Earlier I have harvested a pot of Choy Sum for consumption. I left one plant to re-grow. It was well worth the effort! I snipped the two leaf stalks below to add to a mixed vegetable dish :-)
A French bean seedling... The rest of the seeds, I am not sure why they didn't sprout.
My fairy garden is still growing well. I like how the Pilea depressa is trailing over the edges of the pot. But it has overgrown and taken over the whole pot.
My Alternanthera sp. grows so fast. I thought I had just cut back the plant. Now it about time that I have to cut it back again.
I love begonias. Here is my small collection. A small iron cross begonia ;-)
This begonia, I haven't found its ID yet. It has been growing quite well recently. I am surprised as at first, the plant seems not flourishing at all.
This begonia is the easiest. I have even seen it thriving under the hot sun in some houses here in Petaling Jaya. Toughest begonia I have ever seen before!
Lastly, my angel wing begonia... Not sure why, it has not been flowering for a while now.
Behind is the frangipani I have posted in earlier post. The bunch of lowers is still producing buds and blossoming! At the front is the spider tresses shrub.
A close-up of the spider tresses blooms...
And for those of you who grows Japanese roses, don't think that you don't need to water them. These Portulaca oleracea, like other shrubs, desire water especially now when the weather is so warm.
My yellow crossandra is so small in size but glad to see its flowers...
The dwarf snake plant (Sansevieria sp.) below has really sharp pointed leaves. They make me not wanting it... the torn are dangerous.
Here is my second surprise. My variegated gardenia that has not been flowering for a while, suddenly produced a beautiful bloom and it smelled great.
Roses forever mini roses blooming happily again!
Have a wonderful day!
