One Direction

Been speaking to a colleague of mine recently and its really more important for me as a Landscape Architect to know the names of plants here in Nigeria and most importantly plants that particularly thrive in the tropical climate so I will be paying more attention to naming plants and especially the plants I already have and know that I do not know their names.

So expect more stuff on my Nigerian Plants database page soon.

Loooong overdue Post.

I’m sorry, then I’m Sorry again.
Back to the matter.
So I stopped but I’m back here.
Anyway, I’ve been away from my garden for so long I’m sure things have happened to it that are not mentionable.

This past weekend I’ve been consulting for a park and I was at their bird and butterfly garden, such a lush lush place!!
The plants there :)
The only thing I wished was that the plants were labelled but, I will endeavour to find the names of all of them.
So many exotic plants I’ve never seen in my short life. Less talk, the pictures should do the talking and it doesn’t even do the place justice!

PSAnnouncement.

I am on a slightly different path in my life right now, not so different but quite different.

So, I will not be posting as often as I would have wished and as I planned to at the beginning of this year. Please bear with me at some point in my life this new path I’m forging and this here path will merge and all will be well with the universe again.

Maybe, just maybe this new path will even bring me closer to the bigger plans I have for this darling blog.

Only time my friends, will tell.

What do I say?

I keep apologising for not writing here but I have a really good reason this time, if you remember in my very first post about me studying, Welllll…………… I’m happy to say I have finally put that aspect of my life to rest and I’m a graduate *preening* which means hopefully more time at home and more time in my garden which I’m very happy about, the rains are already coming and I’ll be a bad tenderer if I haven’t done some much needed planting.

Most of my Lemon grass had dried up and rotten so I did some cleaning up and oh the tangy fragrance of the grass almost made me just leave it there but what had to be done had to be done.

Luckily for me a couple of days ago someone helped me cut the grass and weed in my patch so I didn’t have to do any of that for myself (I’m really lazy about that).

So I finally planted some chives, Oregano and Iceberg Lettuce before the mosquitoes finished me and I did some transplanting of some of my pretty Hydrangeas. i also found some pleasant surprise cucumber plants in my patch. yaay!!

I tried propagating some of my Hydrangeas and Duranta sapphires from the stem. I do hope I did that right, anyway its in the soil right now so fingers crossed and hopefully getting its much needed nutrient and it won’t die on me.

So in my new year resolutions one of them was to start a small project which I’ll be doing soon and I’ll be posting updates soon.
