Tassle Ferns

I'm just in love with them

Feels like Christmas
when I see them pine like fronds.
I had managed to collect 4 types nows.

So far it's stable now.
Anyone is handling a new species?

Peter Pan Series

In the midst of my busy heavy schedules,
I often rehearse a mental note of putting a garden post here which most likely
either get postponed or forgotten.
It took awhile as I initially posted in FB less the idea gets forgotten..
So here it is - The Pan Series
where I saw glimpses and shadows of what might be of this great adventure.

Welcome to Neverland
Maranta Arundinacea commonly known as Never never plant.
It does closes during night time - that's the magic of this prayer plant.
Never once a single leaf is the same with another.

The Villant of course...
Captain James Hook.
Not a pirate but close antagonising enough for a stapelia species:
Huernia schneideriana
(Mean enough that it gives the tongue a twist even as you try to mention his name)

Here featuring a hook as it cascade from a kokedama ball.

Second Star to the right
and straight on till morning...

Here features two stars..
The Heart of Jesus Caladium shines a star..
And thus a Bethelem Star from a begonia species
What a combination of names for this series,
very christian indeed..

All it takes is Faith and Trust..
Oh! And something I forgot: Dust.
Just a little bit of Pixie Dust.
                                                 - Peter Pan

Tiger Lily
Sometimes I think that maybe we are just Stories.
Like we may as well jut be words on a page,
because we're only what we've done
and what we are going to do.

Chapter 45, Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson

Captain Hook, someone's following you,
over eye and ocean blue
From the Never Peak to the Never Sea
Oh Captain Hook, who could it be
What's the sound all around?
It's a Tick Tock Clock,
in a belly of of a Tick Tock Croc!
Save me Smee!

I Believe in Fairies..
I do.. I do...

The Fairy Dance
Bluebell and mignonette,
Daffodil and rose,
pansy and every flower that in the garden grow:
Each has its fairy guard
who keeps it sweet and fair.
And fills it with the fragrance
It casts upon the air.
                                    Charles F Knowles

Peter Pan
"Think of the happiest things.
It's the same as having wings."

"You know that place between sleep and awake,
that place where you still remember dreaming?
That's where I'll always love you..
That's where I'll be waiting."

Garden Landscaping: Aquatic Set-Up Features

Here showcasing the details and miniature features.
There is a lot of drama and story to tell in each frame to enjoy and cherish.

Garden Landscaping - Aquatic Set-Up

I would say this is a little oasis in the midst of the garden.
The green aquatic set-up is both visual and practical in this garden application.
Somehow, its more cooler and greener when it come to this space.

I had mentioned a lot in my earlier post concerning this garden theme.
Once thing for sure, something as alive as this is constantly changing
and improving and regenerating into another progress level.
I'm pretty sure the whole design layout will constantly change over months time.
It would be definitely more richer, fuller and expanded with life.

The papyrus collection is really amazing here as they really show off their crowns.
There are few different various aquatic species introduce in this collection here.

Elephant Ears took awhile to stabilise and give out new leaves.
Some species are yet to jump start from dormancy but I believe the danger zone is over.
Its more for them to start growing and thriving.

Here placed Earthstars to stretch itself and grow unrestricted. So far they are doing fine.
There are various types here - more to add to the collection. 

I have added a singular feature of a Japanese pot to give a feature design of a blue flower.
Indeed its more foliage than floral - A representation of ceramic visual will break the common rules that not all flowers are required to be of an organic material.

Breaking the rules barrier of opposites:
Here features another ceramic figurine that features as an aquatic feline.
A rare occurance to mark the beauty of mystery and miniature details.

Here is another hidden feature of a wooden frog upon a grinding stone.
The miniature Caladium builds the visual contrast.

The other pictures below are the collection of the oasis in 360 degrees of arrayed plants featuring this theme for your viewing pleasure.

Finally, the extended view of this aquatic set-up with the Water Pond in a seamless harmony.
This indicate serenity and no major clash as when there are too many water features input can actually break the subtle harmony in the making.

Here they all correspond in their unique placement and design.
