Weekend gardener

Lately I’ve been very busy; i only managed to do gardening work between 1-2 hr on the weekend. Since last 2 weekends i managed to transplant few rooted figs cutting into polybag and pot. I notice that fig growing faster after i transplanted it.  This weekend i transplant a few more and took out a few rooted cutting from underneath the plastic cover for hardening before i transplant it next weekend.

Early Russian sunflower

I always love sunflower, this is one of my favourite sunflower especially after it is just started blooming.After a tiring day at work i just need to see the cheerful face of sunflower to rejuvenate. The contrast between the green centre and semi double bright orange petal is simply stunning. The petal is like the tongue of fire from the sun.
