Free Again

Now that the horrible sleepless nights of burning the midnight oil and last minute cramming of knowledge into my overloading brain, finally I get a whole lot of free time to compensate for. I can't say I'm too pleased with my average results in the test though, especially Chemistry. Anyway, now that I'm free again, I can go back to all my hobbies, including gardening and blogging! Here are some recent blooms to celebrate my new free time.


The heliconia surprised me with a bloom just after my exams were finished.




The ever-blooming adenium flourishing in my garden.



Flowers of a Nepenthes. One flower usually means it's time for reproduction, but 2-3 stalks means stress. Guess they still have not recovered from my neglectful period while I was busy.



But this pitcher is a hopeful sign that they'll grow back and recover gradually.


The robust pink hibiscus is starting to produce lots of buds.




These white anthuriums are the hardiest anthuriums in the garden.




This orchid, usually hidden behind the palm fronds, is a pleasant surprise every time it blooms.




And finally, the hardiest and easiest climber to grow in my garden, the mandevilla.

  2. Your plants are very faithful to you. I haven't seen a nepenthes bloom. You know what i like most in your garden? I love that iron fence design, it can be expensive. I like it too in my place.

    Thanks! Nepenthes blooms are relatively rare.

  4. While you were busy studying, your plants were busy with reproduction. I think it is a good sign when foliage plants start to bloom. Me too, never seen a nepenthes bloom. Now I'm wondering, will my bamboo plants blooms?

  5. Though the flowers aren't really pretty, blooming foliage plants are usually a good sign. I've never seen bamboo bloom before.

  6. I guess your garden had become your friend as it had kept itself blooming to make the gardener happy.
    Guess you are going to be busy again - outdoors now, as the plants are waiting to be tended.
