Our Plants & Flowers

Almost full moon right in front of the house. That was last night.

This morning started with thunder rumbling in the distance, a few small showers over the sea and thick clouds on the mountain side.

So the morning started without a walk, I had my first coffee straight away and Gerlinda got to work in her flower workshop behind the house.

I was then allowed to take a few of the heavy pots to some of the places for a test run.

Finally, some of Gerlinda’s tools from the flower workshop.

It’s Sunday and today, for once, no morning walk. Instead, we had an early breakfast.

As an amusement, the neighbour and his bull did an interlude with a bath in the sea for us, during which I left my breakfast and ran outside with my camera.

Then a few pictures of where Gerlinda left her mark in the garden area through fruit trees, plants and flowers.

Gerlinda & Dieter private - Lola Gerlinda's FLOWER GARDEN

We are on our way from Cagayan de Oro in Northern Mindanao to our daughter’s family in Dauin in Negros Oriental. With the preparations, it will take a few days, we will fly on Saturday.

In the meantime, I made a little video of Lola Gerlinda’s flower gardens NOW as a break filler and will post it within this YT channel under its own section. From next week I will report again with normal videos for this YT channel, but from the island of Negros with the main focus on Dumaguete and Negros Oriental. The resulting private videos will then be posted here AND on a playlist in our YouTube Channel

to be seen.

Gerlinda's Flower Garden

Today we are with Gerlinda behind the house. This is her place where she works with the flowers and plants. That means mixing potting soil, preparing and planting it. This is also where the cuttings from the mother plants are grown for propagation.

Gerlinda's Flower Garden

Today we are in Gerlinda’s flower garden in front of the house and organising new plants.

01) This is the side at the new entrance where it goes down to the garden and the former pigsties. There is still plenty of room there to expand the flower garden.

02) A simple flower on one of the shrubs.

03) One of the many colourful leafy plants, which come in many different patterns and colour combinations.

04) Gerlinda looking for new flowers, plants and cuttings by the roadside, where other people look for their firewood.

05) Gerlinda with her day’s haul on the way home on the mountain road near us in Malasag.
