Today is Hari Raya and I would like to wish all my Muslim friends Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri! May you have a blessed Hari Raya with your family and friends.
It is day two of my detox and I am not exactly feeling perky. I attribute this to healing reaction. As toxins are being purged from my system, some of it are still in my bloodstream and making me feel a bit sluggish.
As part of my rest and relaxation, this morning I did a spot of gardening and let me show you some of the plants that are growing.
|My dad brought this Hibiscus all the way from Kuala Terengganu and it is now growing very well.|
|A Hibiscus flower bud. Sometimes they fall off before blooming. Is this due to lack of nutrients?|
|Pretty isn't it?|
|Another variety of Hibiscus. This plant came as pruned branch which I dragged all the way from the roadside back to my house.|
|This is the very fragrant Bunga Melor. Its formation is deformed and I don't know why.|
|This Vietnamese Basil became very lush after I applied compost.|
|A garden pest. Loves to nibble of my Hisbiscus buds.|
|These Sweet Basil were in my fridge for 2 weeks and I tried my luck planting them.|
|One week later, I was delighted to see new shoots growing.|
|Three weeks later. Some didn't make it.|
|This morning :) It is things like this that give me such joy!|
|Does anybody know what are these yucky creatures? They ate my Zinnia seedlings. On rainy days they can even creep up my Hibiscus plant.|
|My dying curry plant a few months ago. Rescued after reading Joyce's gardening blog. I cut off all the leaves and hoped for the best.|
|New shoots growing.|
|Doing very well now!|
|My pink Hibiscus.|
|Mint. Very important ingredient when making kerabu.|
And my meal for today is a roasted chicken salad. Will share the recipe later.
For the rest of today, I will be visiting my friends' blogs to catch up on what they are up to. I will be back tomorrow with a ghost story. See ya!
