I’ve always been curious about doing gardening around,I was even more interested in collecting and planting flowering plants in the backyard although our backyard garden is not so spacious. I’ve mixed the flowering plants, fruit trees and vegetables together as one. With too much effort to deal with it, I was much excited to see the result as photography plays a very important role to my morning pleasure.

Last summer, I bought some gardening materials and seeds before summering gardening started but many of our house plants kept indoors  to control the light level but, light outdoors are never been great as outdoors. I’ve observed they seems to grow more slowly and need a special care.

It’s rainy season now, Some of our flowering plants drops most of its leaves and flowers turned yellow and very pale. Is it over watering? I really thought it would stay longer like a promising healthy plants I’ve seen around in garden parks. Different flowering plant needs different kind of care like watering, kind of soil and sunlight. Not to mention the night cool temperature and temperate level. That’s tough to handle, huh! I don’t really care,it’s my own and I was much inspired to see the fruit of my effort.
