Bats!

Bats!, originally uploaded by malyousif.

Had four (yes FOUR) bats flying around the garden at dusk today. Attempted to shoot them, and did with a lot of prayer and just pointing the camera and squeezing the shutter when I thought they were in view 😉

Almost done!

I’m afraid we won’t be here to harvest them, but instructions have been left to do so and store them for our return

So happy that this climber has finally decided to flower after being moved from a pot and placed into the ground. It’s got healthy growth now (yes, even in this heat) and these are the first flowers we get on this plant.

Limes, just picked, originally uploaded by malyousif.

The only two limes to fruit on my lime tree (thought it was lemon, but no!). They were this green for a long time so I thought it was time to pick them, cut them, juice them and decide once and for all what type of tree it is. Also, it’s fun picking your own fruit and eating them!

Have a wonderful weekend my friends…

This is the first year that that Poinciana actually flowers in this profusion. After 5 years, I guess it finally feels that it’s mature enough to do so!

It covers the front garden with its petals that every morning the area around it glows with oranges, reds and yellows of its petals.

Happy Friday everyone.

We spread a sand layer over the grass to give it some umph when it starts growing again in the next few weeks. I hope it’ll get rid of the bloody ants or at least, get to be as thick as it was again.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends.

Our produce – Corn

Our produce - Corn

Our produce – Corn, originally uploaded by malyousif.

Just picked from the “corn field” which is the kitchen garden! Our gardener had this idea that we can plant and grow corn there, and he did.

This is the result of his efforts (I claim no kudos here) where he planted a grid of 6 x 4 in total – approx 24 plants.

I can’t wait to try them out. Maybe tonight…
