It's Friday, and once again, we flaunt flowers at our gardens. Join me in Fertilizer Friday (Glenda) and Floral Friday Fotos (Nick), and have a look at all the gardeners that showcase their lovely flowers and gardens.
I seem to have flaunted most of the flowers in yesterday's article. Well, our little terrace garden didn't disappoint me today; it has more flowers for me to showcase. This evening I spent some time to re-pot the lemon plant in a bigger container. I have planted cuttings of one of the Geranium plants. I also pruned the rose plants and the creepers. I may be early in pruning the plants, but I'm cleaning them before the rains. Ah, we had a drizzle, and the sky was covered with dark clouds. However, no rain today at our area.
Last week, I bought a few terracotta containers. My project is to paint them all, and then plant appropriate plants in them. I got containers of different shapes. I'm evaluating the idea of making designs from chalk powder or porcelain powder, and decorating the containers with them. The base color is Maroon (Asian Paints). I dusted the containers, and painted a thin coat of this color. The containers are dry; will get ready to paint the next coat of color. I'm not having a fixed plan about decorating these containers; will let inspiration (of whatever kind) guide me.
Do you see the pretty Orange-colored rose? She is new at our garden. The White roses have bloomed late this season. The large Golden Yellow hibiscus bloomed today. Love that color! Anthurium plants are flowering, one by one. These two flowers seem like best friends sharing a secret, don't they? The Jasmine buds are all set to bloom tonight. The fragrance will surround us, when we walk on the terrace after dinner. That's something I love the most.
Let's me know what you love the most about your garden. Happy weekend!
