Buds & Blooms!

My earlier house was an independent house and I had grown many flowering plants.  This is sort of a nostalgic post.  Some pictures were taken from my album, which has got many pictures of flowers from that house, the current flat and some from the tours.  Have a look! Separate pictures of buds and blooms plus bunches of flowers which has got both together are here!

At home! Bud and bloom is the next one!

There is always some scope to plant some small trees/plants in an independent house.
Like those flowers, especially the hanging ones.

I like those yellow and violet flowers :) Is the first yellow flower, a sunflower?

HADDOCK: Yes! I had many jasmine creepers in my old house. Now, I have got potted plants!


SG: Thank you, SG!


DESTINATION INFINITY: Yes! That was the first time I saw a bud of the sunflower!

Beautiful flowers in varied hues and shapes.
You are having a big balcony, I think, that can be made into a tiny garden of potted plants.
Please post pictures of this 'garden'.

The sunflower bud looks even better than the flower. Put the orchids as it is in a small container, that has a little hole at the bottom. Keep container in a little plate. Water the plate once in four or five days. That is what my daughter does and the orchids have survived over a year.
