    Colours from My Garden

    Pink represents sweetness, playfulness & gladness.
    Pink flower conveys youth, innocence & joy.
    The charm of pink flowers will always turn
    the occasion of life into a memorable moment.

    Here are the pink blooms gracing my garden now
    ~ Hydrangea, Adenium & Periwinkle.

    RP... inspired by all the talk about passionfruit here in the forum, i asked hubby what he thought about it, since we hv a patio cover that is good for it to creep onto. So we checked online, found that it can grow quite well in our area, so we went to Home Depot to look for it. Voila!!! Found it.. then brought it home.. and wondered.. hmm.. why does the label say 'Flowering' instead of fruiting. So, bought one more, thinking maybe it will help with pollination. Err... i hv a feeling we aint going to get fruit. Last weekend, saw another one that had a nice big passionfruit hanging off it. That plant is from a different supplier tho. Sooooo... i hv a feeling that we might end up buying one more that is for fruit. Well, considering the weather is going to get really cold, we will wait til Spring to see if this ones will bear fruit, or else get the real fruiting one. Hubby had to put a wire fence around the bottom to keep the chickens from eating the leaves.
    Btw.. the fruiting one we saw is called Passiflora Frederik. The ones we hv now are Passiflora Edulis.

    RP ~~~ Lovely flowers. Very inspiring.

    Lady ~~~ Your story about the passion fruit reminded me of my bird's nest fern, otherwise known as Asplenium nidusi.

    For years, I had one pot of fern squatting in my garden. It was a gift from my garden pal. Soon the fern spanned more than a meter across. Sadly, there were no little ferns. Curious, I asked my garden pal.

    The theory (between me and my pals, we do come up with lotsa theories BTW ) is that my pot of fern is lonely. Yes, a spouse should fix this problem. I bought another little fern from a nursery. It costs RM5 and came inside a seashell. Hung it near my pot of fern so they could gaze at each other.

    One year later or thereabout, little baby fernies start popping up all over my garden, in flower pots, orchid pots, among my bonsais ~~~ everywhere!

    Gave most of them away. Mr and Mrs Fern are still around in my garden but Mr Fern is rather poorly these days. He is at one corner of the garden while his other half is at the other end. I couldn't handle the little fernies explosion.

    hahhahaha VP.. you are quite the story teller. That was hilarious. I had no idea ferns need partners too. Always thought they were like lalang, growing like crazy. Guess they arent so one-man-show after all. hehehe.. Nice one VP.

    LoL, hope to see your passion fruits photos soon.

    That info about bird's nest fern is enlightening, VP!

    Naka, I have seen the white version of your pink flower in my neighbour's garden. It's like a type of cactus, right? My neighbour's flower blooms only at night and for 1 night. The fragrance is sweet and strong. Is yours like that too?

    Naka, I noted your back extension. Is that polycarbonate roof you are using? And the back seems more Australian than Malaysian.
