A NEW HOBBY ~ GARDENING

I am really excited as I will be moving into my new house tomorrow. Part of my big project is to beautify the garden with lots of colourful flowers before proceeding with my veggie patch behind the house. But one thing to note is that I am not exactly a person with green thumb. Even a tough cactus plant died under my care!

During my trip to Bangkok recently, I managed to get quite a number of bulbs of different species home for my garden. I couldn't remember what those flowers are called but each bulbs are coded with sticker to indicate the colour of the flower.

On Monday night (21 January 2008), Hubby and I decided to plant three bulbs to see if we will yield any results before we plant all on the ground. Hubby took charge of the whole gardening process while I was snapping away. First he filled the pot with 1/3 of soil, put the bulb in, then put in another 1/3 of soil.

To avoid the soil from spilling out during the watering process, Hubby poured 1/3 of colourful stone to cover the soil.

Now, let's wait for a week to see if there are any results. *Fingers crossed*
