....and I am talking about my garden (because I ran out of food posts). Where things grow and flourish at their own pace, undisturbed. Where herbs and unidentified plants appear spontaneously and unplanned.
And bees are a busy buzzing and pollinating....
|A busy little bee loving my basil flowers.|
|Can this little fella sting? Better not get too close.|
A smorgasbord of fauna and flora. Ah...the wonder that is nature. Or is it the work of a lazy gardener?
|A bright colored beetle.|
|A creepy crawlie on my curry plant. Caterpillars give me the creeps. I had to remove this fella because from experience I know it can devour a whole plant.|
|A promising development.|
|It bloomed. A pumpkin flower. I learnt that I had to help it get it on by doing manual pollination.|
|The flower wilted and dropped off. My cousin said to forget it. Put it back into the compost! And that was what I did.|
|These leaves are pretty.|
|That's the flower. I don't know what plant this is. Look at the ants!|
|Oh, you. The neighborhood cat. Look at it's eyes. Staring daggers at me. Just don't leave "bombs" in my garden and we'll be fine.|
|Hope. Tomato flower buds.|
|Blooms! Will I be disappointed again?|
|See there is another smaller one!|
|Fungi growing in the compost.|
|I can't remember what originally grew in here.|
|I'm the only one in the neighbourhood who plants weeds in a pot.|
|Another casualty of my Bohemian gardening style.|
Yah...yah...stop nagging me. I had every intention of spending some time in the garden doing what has to be done during the Hari Raya holidays. But all my time was spent inside doing housework which by the way, was very therapeutic and relaxing. If only I had the whole week off........But hey, today is Friday already! Yipeee!!!!
|Hey you....! Sucking on flowers again?|
