Ascending Numbers

This month is going to be a very busy ordeal for me. Honestly, I've never been so stressed up in my laid-back lifestyle. Piano exams, school exams and my art project's deadline are all happening this month, so I'll have to really manage my time properly. In any case, I'll try to find some time to tend my garden and blog about it.

Like I have mentioned in my previous post, "Collectibles", I have a few collections of various plants, such as orchids, tillandsias, carnivores and the like. I've just added a few numbers to my current collections yesterday. It was a pleasant surprise as I was not expecting to add more plants to my collections until my final exams have ended (which is in December). Passing by a nursery in Kluang, Johor, my mom decided to stop and take a look. Who would have known that I'll get more plants, considering the fact that my mom has put a stop to my collecting spree until my exams have passed.

Since my mom loves orchids, my collection has been growing rapidly. She's handpicked a few orchids in that nursery, such a the yellow cattleya and the dendrobiums. The cattleya has a wonderful fragrance.

Another Madagascar Periwinkle has been added to my minuscule collection. The pure white compliments the luscious pink ones. I love how free-flowering they are, never without blossoms and so hardy to boot.

And a new nepenthes enters my collection. This is N. rafflesiana, a hardy but beautiful specimen among my other CPs.

And now something else. I've been told this is Centella asiatica or Pennywort. Locally known as pegaga. It's growing like a weed across my lawn, but I just leave it there since it's a cute and useful herb.

Until next time.
