It’s nice to be back in blogosphere! First of all, I owe you all a sincere apology for going offline for too long. It’s just a mood swing – I guess I should steal Prue’s blog title and call myself Inept Gardener ‘n’ blogger :D. Though I have been inactive in this blog, my garden was growing big time, then suffered ignorance, many departed Plantville, and finally, they are coming back to shape now. I was blessed with a nephew on October 2010 and I was also busy with my office. My irregular and frequently changing shifts kind of put me into this inactive mode. Now, finally, I’ve decided to get myself a new, regular job and get myself a life! Phew! Wish that day comes soon…
Plantville was doing great in the month of June and July. The Amaryllis Lily and Spider Lily were flowering crazily
and so was the cape honeysuckle and Adenium.
This Hummingbird Vine would grow crazily the moment you give it support.
It would twist and turn around the twine in no time and cover the vine with lovely scarlet blooms. What a sight it was! Plantville had strange visitors in July 2010.
Unlikely ones like these lovely dragonflies (?) visited Plantvilleand I had fun watching them.
Sunflowers and Hibiscus flowered as if it was the end of the world. I even planned to post a blog about them but never got around to doing it. Well, you might get to read that story very soon…
Gerbera too flowered well
and so did Brinjal (eggplant),
but somehow it never yielded fruits.
The mini roses and jasmines did great too.
And then came the period of ignorance with the onset of rains. The Plantville gardener would hardly water them, prune, or fertilize them. He was irregular. With the onset of cold season, he took up crocheting and knitting in the very little time that he got between office and sleep and would almost always ignore his Plants. He’d occasionally check on them and pick the flowers for his pûja.
With arrival of New Year, things changed. The gardener woke up and began cleaning Plantville. Of course, he had to pay the price of his ignorance. Many departed,
some fell very sick,and some were ardently devoted to him.
The good news is, I don’t intend to go back to hibernation mode and have promised myself to sow as much as I can this year. I also plan to launch a crochet and knitting blog titled ‘Cables n Posts’. Will be back soon with more green stories and lookout for the surprise giveaway to celebrate my comeback. :)
