Finally after a long delay, I have spent some time to spruce up my small garden. It was a great thing to see some improvement made to the abandoned plants and the small space in the yard. I repotted some plants, moved some to the ground instead of being in pots for years. I uprooted the wedelia and planted grass.
The cempaka putih (michelia alba) which has grown almost 6 feet in the pot has been moved and planted outside of the gate.
I also added roses into my collection. Not sure whether they will grow well with me, just wait and see how I can handle them..hehe!

I was so happy when I saw that my kesidang plants has buds. I think the last time it bloomed was in 2011.
After waiting for the buds to mature, this is what I managed to snap. There are a few more closed buds waiting to bloom into those white flowers.
And then as I inspect further, I noticed a few more clusters of buds along the thin stem.
I just can’t wait for all 3 bunch of buds to fully bloom. As of now I am enjoying the sweet pandan-scented smell of the kesidang flowers every time I walk pass the plant. It is such a joy even though she only wants to bloom like once a year.
I have moved the second kesidang plant I have to a spot where it can get more sun in hope that it will grow bigger and decide to bloom more sweet flowers for me this year.
