MY FIRST KETUMBAR AKA CORIANDER

Such a lovely thing that I finally have my own ketumbar or coriander.


Actually I have grown coriander for several times, but have never grown well.
We got fail on so many stages.


On September, I was so happy that I finally found a nursery that sale various herbs plants.
I bought coriander and dill plants there.


So lucky that they grow so well and lush, before they ruined by the green worm.


Whatever I was so happy that I've ever enjoy my own coriander. 


Thanks GOD...

ABANDONED WHITE ROSE

Actually our roof garden was abandoned during the dry season.
We have been so busy, so we often forgot to do watering our plants on this area.
Such a shame some of our plant collections, especially roses have drought and then died.


This dry season seem longer than usual.
Dryer and hotter...


So... We're so  lucky when found a beautiful bloom here.


Thanks GOD...

MY FIRST HOYA

About three weeks ago, our team did monitoring and evaluation on so many agricultural projects.
These projects mostly located on the natural farmland, especially hilly area.
Some of the area still have natural atmosphere.


On the way home from monitoring, I fund an interesting thing that fully abandoned at the project area.
A poor wild plant with white beautiful flowers hanging on.
This plant stick on the poor ruined tree.
I checked this plant, and for sure it was Hoya sp...
The plant was so poor... all of the leaves looked yellowish and wrinkled caused by drought during long dry season.


Finally... I took this plant and tried to grow in our tiny garden.
Just put it on the orchid patch.


All of the flowers that hanging on this plant finally fallen.
I might be caused by different atmosphere, the plant was shocked.
I keep watering every day... 
Now this plant looks much better.


And we have been waiting for the blooming.


Thanks GOD...

A BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY WITH WHITE DOVE ORCHID

We had the real beautiful Sunday morning in our tiny garden.


Our garden really smell good...


The fresh fragrant spread from several clumps of white dove orchid (Dendrobium crumenatum) that stick on the brick wall in our back yard.


Such favorable weather for this natural orchid to bloom at the beginning of the rainy season.


I let the clumps grow wildly here.


At the same time we could find thousands clumps of wild white dove orchid in our area blooming.


So nice...




Lets enjoy the beauty...


Thanks GOD
