My garden has been largely neglected but lately I have been taking time out on Sunday mornings to tend to my plants. It's a joy to step out of the house to see these cheery looking leaves.
These are colorful and rather pretty. I don't know what they are called.
They came in a black bag with a plant that my dad brought all the way from Terengganu.
Then I have these hibiscus. Pinks and reds. The yellow one is half dead but I am trying to revive it.
Bought this one from a nursery in Sungai Buloh.
I can spend hours at the Sungai Buloh nurseries. It's like paradise to me. I want to buy everything. Haven't been there for ages because nobody wants to take me there hah..hah..
I remember once waking up at 3:00am to shift a plant I bought so that it could be sheltered from the heavy rain. Crazy, eh?
This red double petaled one started off as a tree branch which I dragged all the way from the open air carpark at Aeon. We plant lovers are willing to so all sorts of things to posses the plant that we covet.
This multi-petal came from my dad's garden. It's so pretty, like a pom-pom.
And the there's the herbs.
These daun pegaga sprang to life recently.
I thought I had lost this plant forever.
Mint. Loads and loads of mint. They are doing very well right now.
Very handy when I want to make kerabu.
These are the daun selasih seedlings grown from the seeds that my dad brought from Terengganu not too long ago.
They are growing well. Need to be transplanted into other pots so that they are not overcrowded.
My bunga kantan has been quite productive lately.
Love these in kerabu and laksa.
And these are bunga telang (blue pea flower) seedlings. Hope to see blue flowers in a bit. Nasi kerabu? hee..hee...
