Staghorn Fern


A friend had passed to me this fern - after reviving it - it started to regenerate well. I had an earlier piece but it didn't well and started to loose its leaves and died.

I gave on it and still wondered if I can manage it
in my gloomy, dark, shaded garden.


It started to grow healthily without any blesmish or burning of the leaves.
And new growth started to show - eventhough its slow but as long as its doing well - I'm happy.

My concern was like there earlier one
Died without any warnings - hopefully this one grows well.








Praying Mantis


I just love to idea of predators in my garden, especially this one -Praying Mantis.
I had enough of cockroaches, mites, ants, scale insects and mealy bugs..
And I don't like the idea of using pesticide - the organic ones somehow washes off after few days in the rain - making no effect on these pest.


I have yet to see a full grown one
I wonder how they had laid eggs and left these babies here.
At first, I thought is was an ant, until in little closer - I found these speedy fellas zooming fast while I snapping the jasmine flowers.


Hopefully, they last long in my garden.
Well - do share with me if you have any experience with mantis.


Rose Jasmine


I must have missed this one - guess took it for granted.
One thing for sure - this jasmine had been evading me from my attention
It needs a good load of sun and something I greatly lack of it in my garden.


Somehow, it finally started blooming this few days,
and blessed me with 3 flowers.
Currently my garden is heavenly scented by these blooms.
Hope the last till Christmas.



Commonly known as Grand Duke of Tuscany,
It is indeed a grand stuff if it blooms often.

A good pruning and a good fertiliser will go a long way for this one to bloom.
Once its start blooming - its just a wonder in the garden


Miniature Roses


It's been awhile working with orchids  roses.
This one is starting to be my favourite - miniature roses,
small as my thumb, or perhaps its a tea rose..


Well, one thing for sure
It took awhile for it to regenerate to lowland climate.
I managed to replant with few cuttings - only one survived but now gives out these lovely bunches.


Basic needs:
A good exposure to sun, a very well balanced medium mix and daily watering.
I hardy prune or fertilise them - I think I should but for the moment - they are flowering just fine.


If you have your hands on these hybrid
Do share your experience about them.




Christmas 2016


Christmas 2016

Though thou art still blue
From still yesteryear's ornaments
Of stringed ribbons of faded silver
A knot, sprinkles of tinsel & baubles..
But where art thou an angel..

I wait for the Hark!
Let the Herald - an Angel Sing...
Gloria.. Gloria...
Glory to God in the Highest!







I would love to this time to wish 
all those who are celebrating Christmas.. 
A Warm and Wonderful, Heatfelt Christmas!
May it Be Jolly good Merry...
and not just a season greetings..

And for the touch of gardener here..
I did this simple Christmas Wreath..
This is my second year - doing this..

With the crisp scent of pines, junipers, cedar & evergreens..
And some conifers and dry flowers...
If you can guess it.. 

Anyways..
Have a blessed moments with friends and family..
🎄
