Begonia Species

It's been amazing to note that I have been so busy and that I had totally neglected my garden.
Any space time I have is totally an emergency moment in rescuing my garden plant from death.
(that is my watering chore) But somehow I'm truly amazed at the durability of my garden that they had become very much self-sustained in keeping their equilibrium of evergreens.
(or in my case - colourful foliage)

I started hating green coloured plants and I had secretly wished that they would die but truly, that too surprised me - especially ferns, they just put out their roots to any nook and corner and display their foliage. My worst fear - now, my garden had turned into a jungle and I really have no idea of pruning or trimming them - simply because I tend to change my mind when looking at them and still consider them beautiful.

My trailing plants which seemed to be very happy trailing along "conquering" my hot hard cement space - which to me is: How on earth can a plant survive without a soil factor?
I guess plants have its ways.

Well, its seemed ages when I blogged or garden or thought of making a "new" comeback.
I thought about it last year but didn't know "my thinking about it" look almost half a year!

I guess its a perspective - sometimes that's what most gardeners goes through, at the heart they are still a plant person - its just they have not put their hands on it.
And I guess that's what garden is all about to prove about that type of a gardener.
My roses still blooms, and so my orchids, and that constant cycle of blooms and fall.
Its just that, this time - it all happened without my hands and sight fixed on them.

So the secret:
Get hardy plants,
by the time you decide to start back gardening, the garden awaits for you.

PS: Enjoy my collection of begonias - they never stop to marvel me.
