Again yellow and pink gladiolus, however this cultivar has no name. On the corm package it is just written yellow and pink gladiolus. Unlike nova lux which has slightly reddish throat, this one is totally yellow. As for pink gladiolus it lacks the dark pink striae on the edge which present in Priscilla cultivar.

This is another type of green mustard that i grew. It has thin, curly light yellow leaves which are very crunchy and white stem. It can be eaten raw in a salad or cooked. Unlike other green mustard which prefers full sun, Ong King Chinese mustard prefers partial shade. (The growth is stunted until i move it to partial shade)

This Rangoon creeper is outside my mum’s bedroom window which is a blessing. She was bedridden for 6 weeks due to nerve problems. It is flowering nonstop since last 2 months, keeping my mother's company. When the window is opened a sweet scent fill her room. Surprisingly more flower bud is forming; a promise of more blooms will follow.
Since early this month my garden are dominated red, pink and yellow colour. So this month’s posting is related to this colour. Earlier on my post feature either pink or yellow gladiolus, more gladiolus bloom is on its way.
Today it is still about yellow. I’m very lucky that all calla tuber that i plant remain healthy, some already reach the flowering stage. This is the second calla lily that is blooming, the first one is still there, and the bloom is already 2 weeks old. 4 days ago the spathe is still upright and curled, today it is leaning sideway and fully opened showing its dark throat in full splendour.

This gooseberry plants are grown from seeds which i bought from Diana. Despite being very healthy and bearing so many fruit, so far i haven't taste it. There are so many whitish pests sucking the sap out of the stem and fruit. I usually kill it by pinching since their body are soft, but lately the infestation is so severe. So yesterday i kill it with pesticide as a last resort.
