SALVIA : BRING BACK IN TO CHILDHOOD MEMORIES

Yesterday, I arrived home and found my 'childhood memory'.
Such a neglected pot in front of the garage.


Beautiful plant was growing so well at this pot.
It's a kind of Salvia, it seem like Salvia coccinea.


When I was a child girl, me with my friend mostly hunting the bloom and sucked the nectar.


Long time ago, In my granny garden, we could find lots of Salvia like this but it had pink color.
We really loved this plant...


Enjoy the memory...

ACEROLA

Just found this interesting plant on the way did observation for seedling house project.
A little tree was growing so lush with red fruits hanging here and there.
I'm sure it's acerola or Barbados cherry (Malphigia emarginata). 
Actually I have a little tree in my balcony, but it grows so poor. 
By the way, I was so happy to enjoy this lush plant.













Thank GOD for finding this interesting plant.

'KUWENI' : AN AROMATIC MANGO

These was lovely gift that we got from our relative.
Actually he worked for several times on fixing our house.
One day he brought us tree fresh homegrown 'kuweni' from his home garden.
Kuweni (Mangifera odorata) is a kind of mango that has aromatic flavor.



The peel is thicker than common mango.


The sap was thick and aromatic.



Greenish yellow flesh...
The nearly ripen fruit is usually served as fresh salad.


When the fruit fully ripen, the flesh is juicy, sweet and tender.
That's great served as fruit juice.


The seed...

Thank you for sharing...
