AN EXPERIMENT

When I put my yucca in the garden in May it didn’t look so good, a lot of it’s leafs were dead so I could either trow it away or experiment with it and as I love to experiment I choose to cut off all the leafs and a bit of the trunk, I used something to cover the wounds so the trunks wouldn’t rot and I waited and waited and for a long time nothing happened but I know plants are very strong and sometimes need a lot of time to do what they have to do and after a few months I noticed new life, yeuhhh !!!! The leafs are tiny but it has many new shoots so I am happy I made the right choice.

BARCELONA ; CACTI AND SUCCULENTS

When on holiday I am always on the look out for cactus gardens and as there are many of them in Spain I just knew there would be one in Barcelona too and yes, there was one and I found it on the Barcelona map so we went over there for a visit, it was awesome !

I think Singapore is amazing and I hope to be able to visit some day soon !

 Despite being a small island with lots of people they still have a lot of space for parks, nature and wildlife, the food is good and it is very clean everywhere.

At the moment I have A LOT of work in the garden and in the greenhouse so I had little time for my blog but I am working on it.

Enjoy your own garden ! And thanks for visiting !
