Sharing Beautiful Flowers And Plants From My Garden.

In today's post I am sharing some photos of flowers and plants from my garden. These photos were taken some time ago. These same flowers are now blooming in my garden and same plants are fruiting like the Okra and Bitter Gourd plants. It had been raining the whole of yesterday, on and off until this morning. At this moment, the sun is shining bright and strong over us here in Ipoh and the current temperature is about 32 deg. C - the best time to stay indoor away from the strong sun.
Pretty Begonia blooming all over my side garden.
 These Begonia plants started to sprout during this rainy season.
 These were all self seeded and they appear in the wet season.
 They can be found growing from the ground in between flower pots.
 They can be found growing where they are not stepped on.
 They grow wild in my garden, they bloom and the seeds will disperse on its own throughout my garden. The seeds stay dormant and will sprout when the next rainy season starts.
 Next are these pretty and little bright yellow flowers of the Bitter Gourd plants.
 Some of the flowers will turn into fruits for me to harvest for my dinner.
 These are my Okra or Ladies Fingers plants growing in pots.
I have altogether 8 plants. 2 plants growing in each pot.
 I have to harvest the fruit before they over matured.
Or else they become hard and fibrous.
 This is the Okra flower.
 Love the colour of the Okra flower.
 One morning, I can harvest 8 fruits from 8 plants.
Another morning, I get to harvest these fruits.

Linking to Floral Bliss.

For God, who gives seed to the farmer to plant,

and later on good crops to harvest and eat,

will give you more and more seed to plant and

will make it grow so that you can give away

more and more fruit from your harvest.

(2 Corinthians 9:10, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. Hi Elaine. At one time, my garden was also infested with snails. I went to the plant nursery for help and I was told to place pellets on the ground around the pots and now the problem is very much reduced.

  32. Hi Nancy,
    I joined a new company early this year and it has a big courtyard with herb plants, pandan leaves, aloe vera, lady's fingers etc... Pumpkin yet to bear fruits. I begin to enjoy the green scenic during my breaks.
