Mutiara

It has been quite quiet on my end lately. That's because I don't have much to report from my garden. I don't know if any of you have the same issue as I do. Having a small garden, there is not much of happening taking place every day. So I just eagerly wait for a new blossom or growth, or visit from an insect or pop by to my friends' gardens in order to have some materials that I can share here with all of you.

Gladly to find a plant of mine has some beautiful blossoms lately. Again, I am not sure of the name of this plant. I bought it from the nursery in Sg. Buluh because of the fragrant blooms. I was told it is named 'mutiara' (pearl, in English) as the blooms are white and tiny and stringed like a strand of pearls.




Like many of the fragrant blooms in my garden, it is white in colour. That makes me wonder why many fragrant blooms are white? Not other more attractive colours, like pink or red?

JC, that's a beautiful flower. It would look nice on a vase too. Would be interesting to know the name.

Nice flower JC! My garden is small too and only in containers as you know ;-) So, it is interesting to know the plants that you have. Happy gardening!

I'm in the same boat. My small garden is quite matured and everything is growing properly, there is nothing to report.The rain (lots of it) has been good for the plants though, I hope it is the same there.

Lucky of you to have lotsa rain in Singapore now. We have haze and heat. The rain comes occasionally but only for less than a minute!! How frustrating to see the sky turned gray, crash of thunder and yet, what one gets is tiny droplets of water! And I wouldn't even call that rain!
