Great Harvest!!

We planted this mango tree at the back yard of our house since we shifted here. It has grown strong and big by the days. We used to have fruits but are always attacked by insects and at the end we only have a few to taste.
For this season, we decided to hang a few insect traps around the tree. Look there are lots of insects trapped inside and die!!
Look at these mangoes!!

there are more behind the branches/leaves....
I think she can do better...
there are some more up there!
She has done a great job!!
yes, she got them! the mangoes are in the net!
Closer view of the net...
oh yes, this net is our own invention!!
I crocheted this net to hold the mangoes so that they will not drop on the ground!
4 mangoes in the net!! I think this is over 1 kg...
The harvest for the day!

some rambutan.....

My neglected garden

This morning the weather was so nice and lovely, so i quickly get the camera and Hanami stole out for some shots! Meanwhile, noticed that the plants and flowers in the garden were so much neglected! They were like reaching out, calling on me for more attention! Oh yes, i have been spending very little time in the garden these days after addicted to knitting! Nevertheless, they are growing fine and blooming well. Manage to take some picture of them.....

Dragon Fruit Plant

For those who have not seen a dragon fruit plant, a picture of the plant is shown below. This is the most easy growing fruit plant and anybody can just grow it in a corner of the garden or in a big flower pot. It needs direct sun light to be healty and fruitful! The most wonderful thing is, it fruits all year round.

More information about dragon fruits can be found here.
