We dont have any plant that grows higher than the eye level, not counting kakdah's hanging orchids, and what by the end of the year, the four papaya plants would eventually be. To see flowers is to look physically down, but flowers remain high in the aesthetic and emotional level. Kakdah will smile, temporarily getting out of whatever is negative and stressful in life, as she walk and lovingly hold the few flowers in the garden.
flowering plants in clusters, balsam (keembung) and zinnia
Balsam, Malar's giveaways, zinnia from the old Putrajaya garden are flowering. The site is actually reserved for pandan which will soon conquer the area. For now flowerings are grown to fill the empty space.
basil getting quite bushy
Basil which is about to be a permanent feature here, is flowering too. The two basil at the back of the house are becoming more bushy after I did a complete pruning of all flower stalks. A few new flowers are coming up and are quite visible.
a young ubi badak by the fence
ubi badak, the shoots,
so tender looking.
ubi itik, another tuber, is a climber too.
I don't know if it will ever produce flower.
kiwi from seeds, first attempt.
at four leaves, they are growing steady.
For now, i will let the eventual kiwi fruits grow in my dream.
Hop over to Katarina to see more.
bangchik and kakdah,
