I am excited to inform you that I got hooked on doing a little more sophisticated gardening activity in the middle of writing and “finalizing” my thesis about a year ago. In the past, my gardening can be described in two words, “simple joys”……I buy plants, and in couple of days or weeks...they go to plant heaven. Three years ago, I managed to buy a white plumeria in a local nursery. Sadly, I wasn’t able to take a photo of that plant. I was also able to gather a number of plumeria cuttings from our friendly neighbors who trimmed their plants during the rainy season during that time. I intended to have these cuttings grow and bloom, to be ready for some breeding action with my white plumeria. But once again, my white plumeria died from root rot, caused by the excessive rain and a very small drainage hole. After three years, my parents allowed me to take a very small area of the garden for my own. This sparked a very expensive but very rewarding hobby. For one year, I started developing the small area, filling it with different kinds of plants! You will find below some of the photos I took while tending my garden(then).
That's it for today! I'll post some of my other photos next time. Happy gardening!
