I remembered when I was still working in the Philippines. I tried to befriend with the company's gardener just to ask him few varieties every time he made trimmings of the hotel garden plants. I would normally ask him to secure some plants underneath my car which was always parked adjacent to the area where he do the trimmings. I always get excited to get home to show to my Mom new additional varieties on our already growing collection of plants. I just love plants... I always get the feeling of being "relaxed" after I viewed all the plants around the house. It's really a good therapy for me after a day's work in the office. So...just want to share with you some views in my own home garden.... Here it is....
This is the "millionaire's vine" that my son Edmar bought and planted by himself. He opted to make it as a roof covering over a garden set as this not only provide shade but
a nice refreshing view.
We really had plenty of these adorable roses. These always produce a lot of flowers enough to pick everyday for a colorful display on a vase inside the kitchen.
This was bought from a garden center few years ago. This is the"Bangkok Bounganvilla". What makes it different from the local produced one is that it never grows tall and just only expand horizontally. Because of this, it can also be classified as a "dwarf" plant.
"Manaog ka Irog"...this hanging plant is perfect to be hung along the fence line and window grills or on the terrace. It's not very difficult to propagate.
This is a gift from Edmar's friend, Troy.Direct from Baguio. This is such a cute display on the center table inside the living room.
This artistic creation was purchased from a garden center. They used a steel wire (alambre) to create the shape. All you have to do is to maintain the shape by constantly trimming it.
|This is the "Dona Aurora"...my Mom's favorite. This is her favorite because this never stops producing flowers all year round. When flowers bloom...it's really abundant. It creates a refreshing sight with the green and white combination from it's flowers and leaves. |
