GBBD December

Here comes the rain....again!
Rain or shine, my garden gives me endless pleasure, hardwork and of course endless weeding! Its that time again for the Garden Bloggers' Blooming Day!
grasshopper romancing my water hyacinth a bit unusual, always see them on my okra's leaves



yellow tunera overrides my white tunera at the moment



frangipani with its sweet scent is having a blooming time this rainy season, just bought the white ones recently, the ones we can find in cemeteries...but still not blooming yet




glorious morning glory giving beautiful highlights on my mulberry bushes




the only flowering bougainvilla (only have 2) at the moment even in this rain, making my garden looking pink!





darker shade of pink...my hanging pot of perinwinkle, I have given up on these when they went bald suddenly, luckily they came back with vigour and more flowers!




last but not least, my pink periwinkle I transplated to the ground next to the pond




Rain or shine or winter, what flowers are blooming in your garden now, if any? Go to my sidebar and click on Mays Dream Garden
and join us bloggers for GBBD monthly affair!
Happy holidays!

All so sweet ... so many familiar blooms. I do so love your Water Hyacinth ... it's really lovely.

Periwinkle here is regarded as a weed and it just pops up everywhere. I'm forever pulling out huge clumps of it from the side garden ... I've given up in one of the old flower beds and it just reigns supreme in there now.

You have a lot of pretty blooming flowers in your garden. My favourite is also the Water Hyacinth.

So pretty. The color is so nice, I love the blue morning glory.

One said...

Is it still raining? It has not rained for 4 days already. But I'm weeding like crazy. I like your frangipani. I only have the red variety. If you like, I can propagate for you.

milka said...

Your morning glory is so gorgeous!! The blue is so blue.. love it very much!! I have one red one climbing on the arbor and fence but it does not like to bloom, hmm.. maybe i should not care them too much as they are treated like weed here haha. Your others flowers are lovely as well!

Stephanie said...

I love your yellow tunera! It's so pretty :-D And I can even smell your fragrant frangipani flowers from here... the flowers so fresh looking and plenty p3chandan. Kudos!!

Lady of Leisure said...

all of them are lovely.. and you know how much i love your morning glory kan, nak pengsan tengok they bloom perfectly.. sangat cantik!

rainfield61 said...

You have introduced one of your friends here.

Hello to him.

p3chandan said...

Bernie, Autumn Belle I like water hyacinth too, one of my favourites. Bernie, Im surprised that periwinkle is considered as weed DownUnder..Here you can only get varieties of colours in the nurseries!

GTGW thanks, I love them too, another of my favourites, the electric blue really jolts my eyes every morning!

One, it rains and drizzles but today seems so bright but your never can tell the weather nowadays. Ok we can exchange your frangipani for mine, have to try to propagate first.

Thanks Milka, I love them too, they are growing wild over my fence but once a while I will prune them since they can be so invasive.

Thanks Steph, I love frangipani and try to get a different colour as possible but my garden is too small for bigger tree.

Lady thanks, dont worry, soon your tri-colour morning glory will give you plenty of colour to your garden too!

One, my friend? Oh no...not my friend at all just an invited guest making a pest of himself!

It makes me warmer just looking at your garden. Thanks for visiting mine. Carolyn

p3chandan said...

The pleasure is mine Carolyn..thanks too for visiting..

noel said...

aloha,

what beautiful colors in your garden this morning, the water hyacinth is also one of my favorites, thanks for sharing your garden today

Rose said...

We're in the grip of Old Man Winter right now with more snow on the way tonight, so it's such a treat to see all your colorful blooms. The frangipani is gorgeous!

Les said...

So nice here to see summer faces from your garden on a cold night.

Malar said...

Pretty bloom! I like your morning glory! It have such a bright flowers! I seldom see morning glory nowadays! Do mulberry have any other name? i couldn't find it in Sg.Buluh nursery!

p3chandan said...

Aloha Noel, thanks and welcome to my small garden!

Rose, thanks for dropping by to get a bit of colour and warmth in the tropics!

Hi Les, thanks do drop in now and then to feel the warmth here, looking forward to your spring garden!

Malar, thanks you, I love their colour too! You cant find mulberry in Sg Buloh, thats odd, cause everytime I go will always see them in poly bags. Never mind Malar, if you want I will propagate for you the next time I prune mine ok?

Malay-Kadazan girl said...

I always look forward to admire your kiambang my favourite. Like your frangipani colour, like to grow one too but don't have space for it as it can grow so big. So thank you for sharing all your blooms.

p3chandan said...

Diana..thanks, its my pleasure sharing my garden blooms with the rest of the bloggers out there who also will share their pretty blooms on this GBBD hosted by Carol of May Dreams Gardens! kiambang and frangipani are my favourites too.Yes frangipani can grow big, so thats why I can grow one more tree to the existing two but have to keep trimming them to get into smaller shape.

milka said...

By the way, i really like your previous post on your mulberry bush and like Malar, have actually visited the local nursery, thought of getting a tree there but unfortunately can't find any. Are the fruits yummy? Eat 'em raw? Make jam???

Orchid de dangau said...

Salam,
I really like your yellow tunera, really nice color.

p3chandan said...

Milka, I can propagate for you if you want..yes the fruits are sweet when ripe, can make juice, eat raw or make jam.I will let you and Malar know once I got them growing in poly bags.

Salam Makarimi, thank you, tunera are easy to grow, just take the mature stem and stick it where you want it to grow, hardy shrubs, looks good as hedges, but dont let them grow too tall, will look scraggly.

milka said...

Thanks for the reply and thanks for the offer to propagate for us. It is very kind of you! But the problem is how to send to us? I'll try a few more nurseries, see if i can get it. Else i will have to drive down to Sitiawan one day, haha. Thank you so much!

p3chandan said...

No la..Im in Ampang not Sitiawan! Sitiawan is my hometown Milka..

I knew I commented here before and saw your December post. But I did it by direct link. But what happened in Blotanical was the post did not load. It only would show only the banner. Then I click your name, then Blotanical took me to the other post. Seems like Blotanical is acting strangely lately. Especially with all the phantom blogs getting hundreds of picks. Also, some blogs load as belonging to another.

fer said...

Your bloomings look amazing!
I like the bouganvilea, So nice

lifeshighway said...

The Water Hyacinth is amazing. I love looking at blooms when it is so deary outside my window.

Kathleen said...

Your tropical plants are such a treat during our winter! Beautiful blooms. I see your blog header photo is a Tibouchina too. I have to work so hard to keep my growing here, I bet it's much easier for you?!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

p3chandan said...

Donna, you commented on both of my blogs! Yes I think Blotanical is acting a bit weird sometimes. Anyways thanks for dropping by and left your comments!

Thank you Fer!

Lifeshighway, thank you for dropping by small garden again!

Kathleen..thank you for visiting my garden.Yes that is Tibouchina, I have white and deep margenta. Its much easier to grow plants here as we have sun all year round!

kitchen flavours said...

Love all your lovely flowers. Your garden must be lovely with all the colours from the blooms!

p3chandan said...

Thank you kitchen flavours, I think my garden has more foliage than blooms, but still the blooms brighten up my garden here and there!

milka said...

milka said...

p3chandan said...

One said...

Hi! I have propagated the frangipani for you. Will let you know when its ready. Feel free to let me know what else you would like. I've written to you via e-mail too.

Kerri said...

Thank you for visiting and saying hello. Nice to 'meet' you :)
Your colourful blooms are a breath of fresh air on this very chilly winter's morning here in upstate New York.
Such a beautiful bloom on the water hyacinth.
I love the pink frangipani...a favourite plant of mine. My mother grew a yellow one in her Australian garden.
I've never seen pink periwinkle before...only blue. How beautiful it is!
Bougainvillia is another plant that stirs memories of my mother's beautiful garden. A wonderful plant!
Thank you for sharing your lovely garden.

Hello P3chandan,

Happy Blooming day, I'm really impress in Mulberry Bushes it looks like little umbrella.

Just like to share with you a beautiful quote...

Hi Kerri, thank you and nice to meet you too.I guess we share the same plants and flowers at our end of the world. Blue periwinkle should be so lovely, havent seen one before! Thanks for visiting my small garden..

Hello Tasha, thank you. Nice to know you. Thanks for the lovely quote too!

p3chandan said...

Thank you One, Ive started propagating my frangipani too so we can exchange!
