Pintu Gerbang ke Taman Astakona...errr taman ker?

Al-kisah dgn pintu gerbang ni.. saya mengidam bertahun!  Setiap kali nak beli, husband jeling-jeling.. jgn membazir! tegahnya.. so saya pun terkulat-kulat tengok laman org..alahai terliurnya..

Pada suatu hari entah macam mana kami pusing-pusing ternampaklah satu nursery menjual pintu gerbang putih idaman.. melihatkan harganya yg hanya RM200 (selalu sy tengok display harganya RM250 ke atas)..cepat2 sy pujuk si dia..kebetulan pulak bwk duit cukup2 RM50! haha..kedekut!  En hasben pulak ada hal lepas tu, tergesa-gesa nak pergi meeting, kalau tak mau sy ke ATM & patah balik.. akhirnya mintak booking, booking air liur saja..harap2 masih ada sebab katanya ni stok yg ada nak clearkan sebab tu murah..  Sepanjang jalan sy moyok jer... sedih sgt teringatkan pintu gerbang yg almost dah jadi hakmilik tetapi gagal..

Tup, tup..dlm tengahari sy buka pintu ..tu diaaa depan pintu terpampang pintu gerbang putih & telah leraikan menjadi 4 bahagian!  Rupa-rupanya En hasben berpatah balik & beli jugak...eemmm alahai, tersentuh hati sy & sedikit rasa bersalah.

Excited punya pasal, tgh hari buta tu sy pasang sendiri! hehe..kalau dah minat apa pun sanggup..inilah rupa asal gerbang putih tu..

Kebetulan mmg dah tanam pokok Madagascar Jasmine & Passiflora Vitifolia tu dlm pasu besar.. jadi sy dekatkan sahaja ke pintu gerbang & ajar dia melilit..tak sabar nak tgk dia membesar

Tak lama selepas itu creepers ni dah mula memanjat.. gembira tak terkata!  Saya tambah sikit2 dengan menggantung petunia yang ada

Mandevilla - gabungan kuning, merah jambu pekat & putih di pintu gerbang



Kemudian saya tambah seri dengan bunga2 Mandevilla pelbagai warna..sungguh menarik bila digabungkan

Passiflora merah ini sgt gemar berbunga & kelopaknya besar & menyerlah

Madagascar Jasmine ini berbau wangi..


Inilah hasilnya setelah beberapa bulan.. kedua2 belah pintu gerbang sudahpun dipenuhi dengan bunga2 mekar yg perlukan penjagaan yg sgt minima..Gabungan 4 warna amat meriah sekali..

En hasben pun tak marah dah.. dia pun selalu bangun pagi2  & suka tgk bunga mekar..selalu melangkah ke taman melalui pintu gerbang ni & melepak di kerusi taman coklat tu..hehe

berkat sabar menunggu..akhirnya impian nak arch putih tercapai..
Spt kata pepatah.. "kalau nak jadi seorang yang penyabar.. cubalah menanam.. 
& jika menanam, silalah bersabar"...

hm.. lepas ni berangan nak pergola putih lak! manusia..manusia..

SIAPA MAKAN CILI DIA YG TERASA PEDAS!

Chillies have been used as a medicinal plant since pre-Colombian times. Today, chillies are one of the most widely used of all natural remedies. It is these reasons why the indigenous peoples of the Americas started to domesticate chillies all those years ago.
Chillies are excellent for your immune system because they are rich in both vitamin A (said to be the anti-infection vitamin) and vitamin C.  

Chilli peppers' bright red colour signals its high content of beta-carotene or pro-vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for healthy mucous membranes, which line the nasal passages, lungs, intestinal tract and urinary tract and serve as the body's first line of defence against invading pathogens. Just two teaspoons of red chilli peppers provide about 6% of the daily value for vitamin C and more than 10% of the daily value for vitamin A. 

Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant used by the body to soak up free radicals. Chillies also contain other anti-oxidants: lutein is found in red chillies, while alpha-carotene is found in yellow and orange chillies as well as capsicums. 


Other vitamins found in chillies include the vitamin B group (mainly B6) and vitamin E. They are also high in potassium, magnesium and iron. Wow...such a wonderful facts about Chillies hah..


Do you know that eating chillies can help with the common cold as they clear congestion too?

 These was planted in my farm.. its called Long Hot Cayenne Chillies.  Ass you can see many of them left out for birds to eat..I was unwell & nobody cares about the chillies..huhu..

Meantime join my fb page called GO GREEN to look out many chilli seeds for sale such as :

PETUNIA MANIA.....

Lots of people complaining buying Petunia from nursery, bring back home, after 2 weeks.... gone with the wind.  Do you know that most of the flowers we bought from nurseries are almost 100% from Cameron Highlands?  yes... they are from highland!  So when you bring back home & exposed to sun too much, without proper maintenance, of course they'll die eventually.

In my case, I am stingy..hehe..i planted all my petunia from seeds..therefore they are long lasting & more tahan lasak...seriously they can tahan abt 1 year, worth planting by seeds..

Take a look & enjoy my jungle of Petunias... semakkkkk!

Portulaca / Japanese Rose in my tiny garden...

Portulaca grandiflora (Moss-rose Purslane or Moss-rose), is a flowering plant in the family Portulacaceae, native toArgentina, southern Brazil, and Uruguay. It is also seen in South Asia and widely spread in most of the cities with old 18th-19th century architecture in the Balkans. In Bangladesh, it is called "Time Fuul", meaning "Time Flower", because the flower has a specific time to bloom. In India, it is called "Nau Bajiya" or "9 O'clock flower" as it blooms in morning around 9:00 AM. In Vietnam, it is called "Hoa mười giờ"meaning "Ten o'clock flower", because the flower is usually in full bloom at 10 o'clock in the morning. Its buds are often chewed by small birds like House Sparrow.  In here? we called it ROSE JEPUN or BUNGA BANK sebab petalnya membuka pukul 9 pagi & kuncup jam 4 petang..hehe.. Nevertheless, ia dah tak relevant kerana jenis hybrid dah banyak yg kembangnya bertahan sehingga lewat petang.
It is a small, but fast-growing annual plant growing to 30 cm tall, though usually less. However if it is cultivated properly it can easily reach this height. The leaves are thick and fleshy, up to 2.5 cm long, arranged alternately or in small clusters.   Numerous cultivars have been selected for double flowers with additional petals, and for variation in flower color, and it is widely grown in temperate climates as an ornamental plant for annual bedding or as a container plant. It requires ample sunlight and well-drained soils. It requires almost no attention and spreads itself very easily. In places with old architecture it can grow between the stones of the road or sidewalk. Seeds are often sold as mixtures.
