Other than the " false ' scare of Fourth Sis's ovarian cancer recurrence that troubled me at the very start of 2019, everything else that matters to me are fine and well, and full of hopes. My small backyard garden in Ipoh is no exception.
New edibles ( herbs ) like Aloe Vera ( Aloe vera ), Chilli ( Capsicum annuum ), Curry Tree ( Murraya koenigii ) and Kafir Lime ( Citrus hystrix ) which I had either grown from fragile cuttings or seedlings at the end of last year, have all adapted comfortably to their new homes at my backyard. Or so they seem.
The seemingly dead and hopeless cuttings of my poor ornamental pink Air Mata Pengantin or Bride's Tears or Chain of Love or Coral Vine or Mexican Creeper ( Antigonon leptopus ) and my multi-coloured Lantana ( Lantana camara ) which I had planted sometime back in pot planters at my backyard, have all suddenly, surprisingly sprung back to life and shown signs of good growths.
Seeing them all thriving happily at my small backyard garden gives me the best of consolations and hopes I need. Especially during those days when I feared Fourth Sis would leave me forever. 😀
