There was no electricity in our place last night, so I don't have any distractions to make an article for this day; perhaps due to the rain or earthquake. Last night, I received a message from DNRRMC regarding the earthquake. I do hope everyone was safe.

For now I would like to share this article to brighten your mood. These are my friends, I like to unwind and talk to them; our very silent friends at home.

But first, let me Flex to you my sponsors, one of those persons who guide and support me throughout my journey here. You guys can check them too:)

My Silent Friends at Home

Bumubuka ng walang bibig

Ngumingiti ng tahimik.

Are you familiar in this riddle?

If you do, then you know what I am refering to.

And the answer is flower

Aside from our dogs and cats at home, I also have this friend as a listener. If you are an introvert, you might understand why we can have flowers/plants as friends or family members.

Wants to them? Here we go..

Number one on the list, let me introduce to you our Two Lovers flower, which is my personal favorite among our flowering plants. We have these two colors; pink and orange. This kind is one of the oldest flower that we have. I remember my mom went to trip with her co-workers, and when she got home this is one of her bring home.Every time she came home with plants, my father and I would say, "Flowers again!"

Next, is our 11-year-old Bird's Nest Plant. It clearly resembles a bird's nest, as implied by its name. Actually, I mentioned this plant in one of my noise.cash posts. One user commented that they also have this kind, but it's risky because most snakes live in it. And he's right: it happend if you don't clean it up and put it in a safe place, then snakes will live here. In our case, however, we always water our plants and clean our yard (except when we go somewhere else), so we are safe from snakes.

Say hello to our little Santans, who come in red and yellow. My mother is the one who places them in the pots one by one. This was a large Santan tree, but my mother is so wise that she cut it up and replanted it, so we now have more or less 30 Santan plants.

I just share to you this color yellow since the red one doesn't have flowers yet.

We have five different varieties if Mayana. This was a herbal plant, as far as I know, and it was used to treat wounds in the same way that horseradish is used to treat wounds. But we take care of these as flowers. We multiply Mayanas in the same way with Santan, by cutting them into pieces and replanting.

Lastly, this lovely pink flower. We don't now what's the name of this plant, but this is the most useful plant that we have, as we use it's flower to put in our altar, and also to decor in church during Bible service. It's petals looks like a group of smalls leaves, just it's only color pink. This type of flower grows to be about 7 feet tall, that my father used to cut it once a year.

And that's it! This are just few among the plants that we have. It's just a blessing that God has blessed us with a large yard where we can plant and grow more plants.

Maybe I will write next for Part 2

Your garden is lovely! Not a plantita but I'm an admirer of Nature and its habitat. Seeing such just makes my day better. I love that line "bumubuka ng ealang bibig, nguminguti ng tahimik," is that a bugtong?

I hope you are having a great day today and keep safe especially that there are disasters happening in your area.
