Truly, my backyard gardening is slowly but surely "blooming". As you enter the front gate of my house, what will greet you is an explosion of different shades of green. On one side is the orchid group where at this moment, there is no single bloom. By the terrace are my pots of herbs such as rosemary, mint, basil and pepper. Creepers are thriving in the trellis while hanging plants adorn the bamboo fence. I have recently cleaned the fish pond and put in a good-sized pump. I'd get the fish later. There are creepers and some water plants by the fish pond too. Ethan said I should get a bird-feeder and a garden gnome statue to complete the decor. Ummm... nice idea.
