Don't Ya Love Flowers?

Did I mention that I tried developing the green thumb? No, I'm not turning into the Incredible Hulk... the Incredible Sulk, maybe but certainly not the Hulk.


I tried planting my own flowers. Had wanted to do that years ago but my neighbour beats me to it. Now, his "lease" expired.. oh rather he gave up. So now, the sun facing corridor is made available and it's my turn now.

Here's the results of our efforts. Nice?

I'm actually quite fond of flowers. So in most overseas trips, I would snap pictures of flowers whenever the opportunity arises. I also realised that flowers are the most beautiful in their natural form... and not in a bouquet. Here's some of them that I took in my previous trip to Hokkaido. I promised someone out there that I would show these pictures to her... long long ago, sorry there. It really took me a long time to show these picures :p

I'll leave you to admire these flowers now. BTW, sorry for the bad layout... just can't get this blog to cooperate...

Mr K thats a pretty sunnyflow that you've grown! Impressive. Ever wanna try growing a lotus flower? :P Tell froggy and i shall rent a room in that pot.

Fact has proven. Mr K's thumb is not only hairy and use for eating bananas, its green and hairy and can be use on plants.

Oooo!!! Da great ape is also a great horticulturist!! Once da sunflower has withered do remember to pluck out da seeds behind near da stalk. Ya can either grow more plants from them or ya can eat them as a snack :)

Hi Gecko... long time no hear from you.
I tot I could get the sunflower seeds to grow some more but they withered before seeds come out. :( Have to pull all of them out. Now I'm trying chillies, tomatoes, parsley and onions... more practical, ya :p
