My garden is a variety of plants on the rooftop, in our balcony
and on my kitchen windowsill as well as around the house.
Having some greens and foliage gives me a sense of being in a garden, well sort of : )
The above is a collage of pictures of my surviving plants,
ones that I had indoors, and some of my outdoor ones too.
It has been a hot and humid summer on our island
and we have survived, so did our plants but only just!
Remember this picture earlier this summer...these were foliage that I grew from seeds and was so looking forward to summer flowers...well from this it went
this ..... don't know what happened here but it seems either the seeds I used were not good quality or else like everything else the plants suffered from our intense summer heat.
And I am just now at the end of the season enjoying these tiny flowers from this one plant (from the only two that survived)...you will notice I put up a kind of trellis at the back as earlier on some of the plants were sprouting tendrils and I so enjoyed seeing these climbers trailing up until one fine day they just shrivelled up and died : (
Most of my plants suffered the scorching heat of the day, the dry winds...I have tried to save what is left by repotting or adding top soil, we'll see...
I managed to save one bulb of my trio in the Nolina family, fingers crossed this one will survive.
I had a couple of cuttings my Mum gave me which I had in water for several weeks and one of them even sprouted roots...
I have now potted them and they seem to be doing nicely.
And here are my herbs, chives on the left,
basil on the right,
I am getting these indoors for the winter and hopefully they will do better on my kitchen windowsill : )
