Sunday here in my side of town and I have yet to see the sun. How has it been for you beautiful souls? I hope all is well...

The rain is still pouring hard bringing with it some gusts and winds. So yes, there's no chance for the sun to peek in here today. Nevertheless, I ain't going to stay in the corner and sulk. Ah-ah, not gonna happen. Lol!

Since I gave you a mouthful feast yesterday, I thought I might give you an eyeful today with some of my favorite plants and flowers. I didn't buy any of them to be honest. Most have been given to me by my generous sister and some from friends too. So I was also happy to give some away when neighbors or passersby notice them and tease me to get some.

This is inspired by an article by @fantagira "Come enjoy roses with me." Don't forget to go for a tour of her yard with her fabulous roses. I am sure you'll see those that you haven't seen anywhere else.

And now, I see you're already picturing beautiful flowers. I know. Been there too :)

So here we go... Enjoy!

Note: I have previously posted most of these photos on my noise cash walls so those of you who have been visiting my page in the past may be familiar with most of these already.

Gloxinia. This has to be one of them. This is quite difficult to care for because it is so sensitive. Water it a bit more and chances are, it will slowly rot down under and you'll be surprised one day the leaves will start to fall off. Much sunlight and too little water and it will wilt in no time. It has to be under constant care.

And here it is when the buds fully bloom... "No touch, no belong" is this plant's policy haha. Yes! It's for your eyes only! I have had my own failed attempts in growing one of these. So my sister gave me two of hers, already potted. So I took care of them, painstakingly until they produced buds and then walla! They bloomed!

Orchids. Just like the one above, orchids are, to me, high-maintenance plants. In lovely Monika's post "How I became a serial orchid killer" she also mentioned her experiences and failed attempts in growing orchids. You must visit her article if you want to have success in orchids. She revealed her secrets there :)

And speaking of orchids, I do have a wild one at the other side, picked by my hubby somewhere in the woods. This type of orchid prefers its roots to be damp so we wrapped some moss around it. The flowers are tiny yet mesmerizing. My mom has several of them too.

Roses. There's something in roses that I love especially when they just start to form buds, like magic that is slowly unfolding. They are thorny yet they provide beautiful buds and flowers.

Blooming pink in the summer. I never pick the flowers though. I thought about cutting and putting them in a vase, but I decided not to. So I just let them stay in their stems and live fullest to their limited lifespan.

And yes, red ones too! I have this stem in a big flower pot just beside the doorstep at the other house. I now wonder how they're faring these days.

Reds blooming. I think the camera angle and the lighting gave that orangy appearance or shades to the flowers. But they're actually red, from the same stem of the above photo.

Crab Cactus. I am aware there are different types of this plant and a variety of colors too and I don't know how others care for them. But I think they're quite easy. Pot them and let them be, water them of course hehe. Some are outdoors and some are kept indoors too.

Pssst... Look at me! Ain't I gorgeous?

🎶🎶Draw me close to your eyes and you'll see...🎶🎶🎶 (I just made that lyrics up🤣)

These are some I kept indoors at the other house too. I was quite patient in the past that I had some of my stationery pieces wrapped around some glass cups and planted some cactus in them just like this one :)

And this same variety above, glossy bright pink bloom, or is it fuchsia-like shade? This one was placed in the shaded area outdoors.

Lil crabs sprouting... taken on a sunny day. I miss the sun, I really do...

Rubber plants. This is my favorite rubber bonsai. Obviously, they don't bear flowers but I included them here anyway.

I don't know its name yet. Even people who have visited and seen it don't know what it's called. It was given to me by my sister when it was very tiny and I have since re-potted it to a bigger one. I kept this at the kitchen counter at the other house and is still there. The leaves are really thick and glossy too. And I am not worried about it at all. It survives on its own.

This too, I do not know its particular name. So I just call it another rubber bonsai tree. I also believe these types of plants are quite easy to care for. Just don't put too much water in them at once or keep them too dry. Be a little gentle okay?

And these. If anyone of you read this and you happen to know its name, please let me know through the comment board below. Thank you :)

I have lots of these. I started with just one stem, and when it grew long, I cut them and planted them so they multiplied easily.

I was fond of recycling used plastic bottles (like this fabric conditioner bottle) and grow some plants in them. Money saved and the good for mother earth too. Yes, a win-win!

They can be on hanging pots or just let them grow on the ground, preferably by the sloping walls and they will definitely cover the walls green and flower beautifully.

The Chicken Feet. Yes, you read that right! It was my chef niece who told me of the name. And looking at the stem and the branch, they do look like chicken feet haha. This one's kept outside.

Alstroemeria or commonly called 'Alstro' in our area. My first time growing these Peruvian Lilies was a failure. None of them survived. Thanks to my sister-in-law who gave me a pot and I have since multiplied their numbers.

They grow all year round and I think they bloom twice a year, I didn't really notice haha. These were some of those plants around the yard at the other house that remained green and robust during the last summer, surviving the scorching heat despite not getting watered. And yes, they were beautifully blooming too!

These were my neighbor's red variety. I thought of asking for a stem so I could grow them too but haven't been able to. Our last visit to the other house was May 27th based on the timestamped of the above alstro photos.

And speaking of lilies, here's one! Don't ask me the name though, because I don't know :)

There's one particular flowering plant outside (at the hilly portion of the backyard) that I am curious about. I don't know its name but it just grew there without me planting it. I know I have seen this kind somewhere else too. Any idea?

I know there are many plant/flower lovers here and you probably have lots of flowers more than these so please do share :)

And I hope this time I won't be scolded for making anyone hungry😆

Thank you much! Till then, stay beautiful, firm yet gentle, mesmerizing, and awesome as you already are!

Food for the soul this time. Love your flowers. I'm not very into roses. But I love cactus flowers. And the chicken feet, I think I've never seen them before, but I like them. The plant that you ask what it's called, gives me the impression that it is what we call Hydrangeas (Hortensias).

Thank you for looking it that way my friend, food for the soul indeed :) Cactus flowers are fantastic too, though I have not one flowering yet.

And oh, thank you, yes they're called Hydrangeas! Amazing!
