My Gardenia Blooms
These flowers used to be permanent fixtures in my small garden. I had the lone shrub for years and it produces such lovely white flowers every year. Some months ago, the leaves slowly turned yellow then they dried up to brittle brown ones. This afternoon, my son and I decided to finally put it to rest so what is left now is a small stump of the trunk.
My gardenia is gone. All I have left are random photos of its flowers. Funny but I still could smell their heady scents from here.
Another Go With A Macro
Trying Macro Shots
A few years ago, I tried my hand at macro photography, just ordinary photos. I found these colorful Macopa growing in our yard and some Mangoes which my brother picked from our trees.
Mangoes are in season now. They are best eaten ripe like this or you can also eat them green with a sprinkling of salt. We enjoy Macopa too during summer. When it ripens, it will just fall to the ground. Macopa is also a tropical fruit as is also known as wax apple.
I have always been fascinated by the different colors of greens in our small garden. I sometimes make it a point to take some shot of them when they are at their best. It’s been a while though since I took photos, my camera is not working well. I rely on my camera phone and tab for quick shots. Here are some foliage shots I took over the years.
Every tip is colored orange when the leaf is young. I so love this. You can shape Eugenia anything you want.
San Francisco comes in a variety of colors and shapes. They are easy to propagate shrubs but you need to trim them so they won’t grow too tall.
I have this for quite sometime and I am still waiting for it to produce those lovely fruits to no avail.
I forgot the name of this water plant. It grows as vine and so easy to propagate. You can even use it inside for vases.
This belongs to the family of those Taro plants you commonly see in gardens.
A mosquito repellent plant. I use it as grown covers too. When you want lovely foliage in your garden, this is it.
