Sometimes i cut office hours to chase sunsets like these: above and below!
Moreover, i would also like to show you some plants on the ground below the buildings.
Top L-R: Eugenia sp, Picara sp, bamboo at the boundary of the property, succulents, variegated Acalypha, pocket gardens at the ground level with newly planted Podocarpus and royal palms still recuperating from hauling and transplanting.
Iris lilies (Neomarica longifolia) growing luxuriantly
Now i would like to show you my micro garden on my 5th Floor Window. Can you guess what i planted there? There is a variegated pineapple i got from the last garden show. I got the lettuce seeds from a friend in the office. And yes, it is garlic from my kitchen shelf. Everything is for experiment and fun! They practically don't receive sunshine the whole day except a 3-inch light source through the glass. These plants are actually being tortured thru light deprivation, and i am sorry. So, it is not surprising to have very long leaves for garlic and etiolated lettuce seedlings with spindly stem and very narrow leaves. Definitely not for food. These are photos early on, now they are almost at the end of their lives, with very long leaves, about 2 ft. Can you imagine how light deprivation can do! This is my tiny vegetable garden. Gardening spirit is difficult to control, even without good conditions they will still manifest.
But to tell you frankly, another purpose for planting garlic is to provide some drama for my sunsets! Please look below. How do you like it?
Now, will you blame me!
