We have been having lovely sunny morning since four days ago.
Bright shine and warm weather.

Enjoying this moment for some gardening chores.
Pruning, weeding and watering our terrace garden.
The heat makes this morning is a sweaty morning, a bit tiring but a lot of fun.
So, just taking a rest for a moment and then enjoying the beauty on our table.
There are five little pot here.

First, a beautiful pakcoy 'Nai Bai'.
Such a same to harvest and cook it.

The second, a kind of ground orchid.
The foliage is so interesting.

Then a pot of Nanas kerang or Rhoeo discolor (Tradescantia spathacea).
It's seem etiolated.

The fourth is a green striped Bromelliad.
Looks so compact, I like it.

And the last one is the most lovely thing here.
White flowered Pelargonium is blooming for the second time.

Thanks GOD for this beautiful world!

This is our kale patch this season.
Actually I sowed three varieties of kale or kailan, but this is the only one that germinated and then growing healthy.

This is 'Kailan Winsa'.

I'm not sure when I sowed the seeds.
It might be sowed in January.

Love to see the fresh leaves...
They must be grow better if they grown on the ground.

The tubby stem looks so juicy...

I think both of leaves and stem are so crispy.

They must be so delicious to be stir fried.
Mmm... yummy!

Such a lovely thing...
Finally my red pakcoys grow so healthy.

The first batch I sowed a pinch of seeds, and there five seed germinated and grow bigger and bigger.

So... we can find more color in our terrace garden.

Such a shame to harvest them...

Too beautiful to be cooked and eaten.

Our eastern balcony looks a bit different this month.
This is the view of our balcony this morning.

Some new plants here...

The row of Mini pakcoy white is still stunning.
Although some time got drought, cause we forgot to watering them.

I have moved the Siomak or lettuces 'Pointed Leaf' on to the floor.

Cause too much risk to keep them on the balcony wall.
They looks so fresh here.

Then I put new grown vegetables, 'Sawi Hijau' a kind of mustard.

Six pots of mini Pakcoy white looks so cute.

I also grow Sawi hijau on two gutters.

Looks so healthy, although some of them were chewed by the grasshoppers.

Three lettuces 'Butterhead' have already bolted.

I put them under  the gutter.

In each corner there's a pot of 'Queen of The Night' that bloomed last night.

These are the blossomed Ephypilum.
Not so special...

I hope they will grow better here...

On Friday, me and my friend visited a landslide location on the high land in a farmland. 

Yes, this was a smallholders-farmland.

They mostly grow potato here.

Did observation and reporting.

Actually the landslide was happened last year in October.

A mini adventure...
Walking through the bushes in the rain.

Hiking the slippery path.

Climbing the rocky cliff.
Adrenaline pumped...

'The ruin' of the cliff have already 'recovered' naturally.
Some of wild plants grow naturally.

This place has beautiful scenery.

We can find so many hot spring water, and also hot creek too.
Look the steam from the creek...

Although the usual temperature here is so cool, but we can warming up our body using natural hot water.

Enjoy the work and sight...
Beautiful scenery ...

Our eastern backyard looks so mess.
Lots of rains makes all plant grow so fast, especially the weed and wild plants.
The climbers are growing like crazy.

Several varieties of wild ferns are growing so lush on the both of brick and stone wall.
They all grow naturally, I think the spores were spread and flown by the wind.

When I tidied up our back yard I feel these ferns are too bad to be discarded.
Especially these ferns at the corner.

Actually, I pulled out some of ferns from the wall.
But this one looks so lush.

Such a shame to be wasted.

And I think it only need to be pruned, so it will be looked more beautiful.
Let them grow wildly, naturally...

This is a lovely morning.
A sunny warm morning, with so many aromaticscent from our front yard.
From the drive way near the gate we only found three of the Kemuning flower (Murraya paniculata) were blooming.

Actually this little tree is so poor. 
It's shaded by lemon tree, so the flower is so rare.
If the plant get lots of sunshine, so the flowers will set in a big cluster with about 6-10 blossom in the same time.
Tiny white flower like as jasmine.

Although we only have two or more blossom, but the scent is so fascinating.
Thanks GOD...
