"Don't wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul."

- Luther Burbank



When we first move to this place 3-4 years ago, there was no flowers around. Being a lover of flowers and green plants, my wife patiently planted some and they are my subject for today.

It has been raining from mid-day, stopped for a couple of minutes which gave me the chance to go outside where I noticed the flowering plants and I thought, why not take pictures of them?

The Sunburst (yellow) are always happy no matter what the weather is. Sometimes they wilt in summer when there is intense heat but they recover and thrive again.

The Plant Berries or winter berries (those look like cherry tomato fruits) do the same. They add more colours to our yard. When the "fruit" fall down, the seeds inside it germinate. That is how they become plenty.

The last two photos are tiny flowers of a bonsai "Money Tree" which my wife managed to grow. After 2-3 years, it started to bear flowers but some are falling. Maybe it is natural. It is placed on the partially shaded part of the yard. It was initially inside the house but was not growing well so we brought it outside and placed moss around its pot.

Thank you and hope you enjoyed the photos.

To your bliss today!

Those tomatoes look so healthy and luscious. You have a great start to becoming self sufficient with your veggies. I do think tomatoes are the easiest to grow.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, I do like to eat those kinds of naturally grown fruits and vegetables, but I don't think I'll be planting any of them anytime soon. I grew up in the countryside with my parents doing this, everything work-wise was done by hand. TOO much work for my liking. At least not this kind of work. 🙃

Voted on ListNerds!

Felt the same way when was younger then came to appreciate it more when we spent years and years in the city and overseas. We chose to go back to a more laid back life in the countryside :D

I have been harvesting lots of tomatoes lately.

I only have three plants, but it seems like I get 1-2 pounds per day lately, which we are gobbling up just fine.

Thanks for sharing - I especially like reading about the bonsai's.

Good to hear. Tomatoes are generous plants, they keep fruiting and we cannot even consume them so everybody around the neighborhood can pick them anytime :D

Ah, now you have me regretting the fact that I didn't plant a garden this year. I just didn't have the time for it. Maybe next year I will try again with a renewed passion. This is the first year in quite a while that I haven't had one.

You can still plant or maybe too late? Enjoy when you do :)

A bit too late now. It is okay. We have more trips planned so it would be hard to tend to it anyway.

Beautiful photos - thank you. I spent 2 years on a permaculture farm in Cambodia and really miss the deep deep connection with nature.
