THE 2012 HOMECOMING

Hello everyone! I was off for nearly six months! And within those months, a lot of things happened....garden in and garden out. haha! Right in the middle of the Christmas Season, our store opened a new department, selling curtains, pillows, furnitures and some home improvement goods. I was the one in-charge of the said department, thus the lack of time to update this blog. But the pivoting moment happened just a month ago when my family decided to let me bring back my plants from the "secret garden" at the back of our retail establishment....to our residential home! Oh Yeah! However, due to space constraints...I had to limit my plants to Begonias, Roses, Hibiscuses, Orchids and some plants that are quite rare in our place. All the rest were given away to my suki (repeat buyers and/or "sellers")....and to a friend. Initially...I intended to place my Begonias right inside my room....but even if the light is bright, the plants still needed some heat from the sun and good air circulation. So I managed to set-up my plants in the Mini-pond area of our residential house. Here are some photos of my "re-established" garden.....the Homecoming Garden.


This is the best angle to take a picture of the garden at the mini-pond area. I felt very nostalgic while enjoying the company of my plants this morning.



This is a corner area where most of my mini and floribunda roses are gathered. I think they love the area since some of them already started blooming a couple of days before.



This corner on the other hand, is where all my Hibiscus plants are. They also love the place since they are continuously blooming since the week I transferred them here.



This is the first set of my Begonia collection...the other set is on the other side of which I was not able to take a picture of.



A NoID bulb forcing out a flower bud...I do hope it's a great one! :D



An after stress Begonia sporting a new leaf that's about to be in full "bloom".



The senior member Begonia...I believe this one got most of its genes from Begonia Coralina.



A false Eranthemum or Pseudoeranthemum.....not sure of its species name.



A mini Rose just bloomed a while ago.




Traders call this pink angel!!! I think it's because the flower and leaves closely resemble that of the White angel's...however, it is purple in reality.






I don't know the name of this plant. It's one of my NoID plants in the garden. It has very nice flowers that resemble that of Ixora plants and has a very great foliage too! please help me identify this plant. Thanks!




A relatively new member...this White Hibiscus is very serene to look at. It has white petals with yellow edges that is very attractive.





This Hibiscus has Light Orange petals with dark orange blemishes making it look like an "airbrushed" flower.




The Junior member pagoda Hibiscus.





My Senior member Red Hibiscus is very alive and still "kicking"!!! It's flowers are very bright Red in color and the blooms are relatively larger than the rest of the gang.
