I always love the early blooming season of Rudbeckias.

Tropical Paradise

We got to enjoy tropical plants during our recent trip to Asia. 

This has always been my favorite fruit. Locally named as atis ( sugar apple, Anona squamos), the 
flesh is succulent and sweet. 

Ylang-ylang (Conganga odorata) is increasing in popularity among perfume makers. The flowers are beautiful and fragrant. 

No fuss, natural living wall. No need to expensive frames. This living wall grew on its own and just needs reqular watering.

A Basketful of Greens

After 2 months of waiting, my basketful of greens is here and ready to eat!
I recycled a gift basket from the holidays and put a coconut liner inside to retain the soil.

 On one side, are the endives.
 And on the other side are the arugula plants.
 Greens to go! This portable garden can be moved all around and can even be brought inside as a decorative piece.
