This is my mum's garden flowers. I guess this is one of her favourite blooms. (Rangoon Creeper)
It had came from her friend and had passed the plant to me. It had became invasive and I had passed back to her. I guess this flower submits to woman's hands.. (lol)
My mum's pride & joy...
My sis. came from Penang to have a family gathering together for mother's day.
It was a memorable day. We (mum, sis, bro, wife and my elder son) had a nice lunch, visited my other sister and her family, spend time in my place and children, visited a garden centre (mum & sis commented that the plants sold here are too expensive - so, I just got seeds & some fertilisers) had tea in my place and finally an evening with my mum's garden.
My mum use to narrate her story whenever there is a family gathering or among her friends:
That when she was carrying me in her womb, she spend all her time tending garden. And so had passed that tendency to me or so the very reason that Im very receptive to plants compared to my other siblings who didn't go thru that ordeal and therefore not zealous in plants.
Night Blooming Jasmine
Someone had passed this orchid plant to her (golden showers)
She told me that it was quite in a bad shape. She had nursed it until it bloomed.
Truly she has green fingers..
Her yellow ixora
white wishbone flower
Her overall garden..
My complain is why this has to be so untidy...
I guess thats how she likes it...
Again, each gardener has the right to choose how they would like to keep their garden..
She had passed me few of her plants (begonia, maiden hair fern - bigger version, roses and another few plant sharing on the same pot, and few pots of coleus) I find it hard to say no when she insist that I should take them.
But I guess, there is a lot of work to do in repotting and sorting these plants in my tight small little garden. I do not want to neglect any of my new plants - to take and keep them at optimum level. I hope I can keep up to the challenge...
My garden may just turned up to be just like my mum's garden...
then my wife will start complaining that its getting into a jungle again..(lol)
