Just two days ago, my whole afternoon was occupied with reorganizing my plants at home. Talking about plants...I just love them. Despite of the different types of plants, I just love taking care of it and looking at it especially those that I've grown myself. The idea of getting into 'gardening career' appeared when my life was full of 'busi-ness' at the office. I was desperately in need of a 'hobby' that will divert my attention at work to something else that is more 'alive'...more meaningful and that could touches my heart. "Get dirty and enjoy!" After several months (6+ month) I've planted more than 10 species of plants ranging from vegetables-based, fruit-based, fern, flowery, and grasses...well there are two types of grass occupying my front and back yard. The buffalo grass and the carpet grass. I really appreciate the plant-job very much. It is so much of relief whenever I reach home every day after work. Looking at the growing plants and trees around the house. My children appreciate it too. They are also involved in the plant-job...oftenly trying to get hold on to my planting scissors and cutters!! But Nadhrah really like the hibiscus, portulaca and jasmine flowers that I grow...not forgetting my plumeria rubera...they have such wonderful bright 'whitish' and 'pink-ish' color. I always get so excited whenever Nadhrah come running to me to let me know that my flowers are blooming every time she sees new flowers coming out. She will then touches the blooming flower and talks to it...yes.. giving 'advices' to the plants to stay healthy and I always do during my regular visits around the house.

I am still an amateur yet gardening is a hobby that I am getting on quite seriously. I will load up a few photos of the flowers that I plant in my future posting.
