Flowers of Tomorrow and Seeds of Today

I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in the rebirth of the nature? - Edward Giobbi

I took the opportunity to reinvent our flower garden with my mom because it is holiday today in here. It is really therapeutic and everything of the nature is truly marvelous. I did many shots but here are just some of the ones that passed my eye. Take a look into our newly made over garden.




This is one of the two groups of our collection of these awesome plants that many flower growers describe as poisonous. But aren't they just wonderful?



These are "peacock plants" named probably after the famous showy bird because the leaves of these plants resemble like its showy tail.



Rare agloenema, especially those colored pink and red, are very expensive, that is why we only have few and most of them are just ordinary.



We also have a growing collection of bromeliads. They are easy to grow and need less tending. People used to stop collecting these plants because they collect water where mosquitoes breed.



These are fortune plants in different colors and sizes. We still have a few of the rarest to collect though. Some light colored need more exposure to sunlight while other dark colored just suit better under shady space.



I have over a hundred of these prickly plants, including succulents and spikes. A terrarium for these dessert plants is a project in the making.



This is called Cherry Red. It is the new addition to our philodendron collection among Moonlight, Sunrise, Melodina, Black Cardinal and Red Congo.



Our neighbor call these cute leafy plants "calipayan". They are not popular among gardeners but they are just as interesting to collect because they come in many varieties.




I have about fifteen varieties of these are dwarfer version of bromeliads and they look just as awesome. When a bulb of flowers appear right in its middle, it becomes mature and shoots begin to take over the mother plant.
