Back To My Roots

Way back in 2009, I started blogging after my ICT teacher instructed us to create a blog. Back then, growing carnivorous plants was my passion and focus and therefore my blog was all about them. Looking back now, who'd knew how my life would have turned out. I branched out into growing more varieties of plants, instead of just carnivorous plants. Flowering vines, hibiscus, roses, and bulbs. Then came my period of neglect as I was caught up in my busy school life. My garden suffered as a result and my carnivorous plants collection dwindled. However, now I'm feeling nostalgic and want to grow these unique plants again.

This is my latest nepenthes, N. x dyeriana





I've also created a mini-bog to accommodate the new plants I've ordered and here's the result:

New Year, New Growth

It won't be too long before the Chinese New Year celebrations, and there'll be loads and loads of chores and preparations for it. Things are going out of control in my final year of high school as teachers are giving tons of homework to prepare us for the very important examination in November (aiming to get straight A+ in every subject). However, I still have some free time for my passion for gardening. Here are just some photos to share.

A New Year

So a new year has begun (and that means school too!). This year will be my final year in high school and I'll be taking a major examination this November so I guess I have to start working hard from now. I'll also be taking my Grade 8 piano examinations so I definitely feel under pressure. However, I hope my hobbies could vent out all that stress. Anyway, here are some photos to celebrate my first blog post of 2012.
