Don't know exact area but more than 3000 sq ft for the garden. Maybe the garden looks bigger in photos.
I'm also jealous of other people who have beautiful landscaped gardens. Have been staying at current place for many years. Many plants come & go over the years. I'm growing some new plants to replace those that are nearing the end of their plant lives. I don't have as many choices as most of you because I can only grow plants that can take full-day direct sun in the open.



ever consider plumeria?
if not most creeping vines love sun.

3000 ft? woow..that's HUGE! mine's only like..maybe 1/4 of yours..LOL :P/>
I guess your garden has a potential. I love those vintage fences of yours..pretty :wub:/> If you paint them in white or maybe dark colors (dark green, dark blue) they will make a great impact to your garden..just a beautiful background for your plants and harmony to the house. Haha, just my imagination. :bangin:/>

Hi, you defnitely have a large garden I can only dream of.. how envious...

Anyway have you thought of plainting bougainvillas ? Though they are very common, but bougainvillas can grow into very spectacular specimens and are very heat-tolerant, if not heat-loving. And most importantly, they are also very low maintenance...

My Pereskia bleo which normally produces orange flowers will have red flowers once in a while. There are 3 red blossoms today.

Hi petunia

Glad that you like the pictures of the flowers. I guess my photography skills have improved. Things usually look better in pictures than in real-life. The members who have been to my place will attest to that.

The first of my 8 pots of Datura metel started blooming last night. The fragrance was very strong. I like the colour of the flower but I would prefer a milder fragrance.

Here's my blue pea vines:

Between the single & double petalled varieties, I still prefer the single petal type for its simplicity & more beautiful shade of blue. Although the colour of both look the same in the photo, the single petal type is actually a very nice shade of "happy blue" (see picture under my nickname), whereas the double petal type is in a darker shade of "gloomy blue".

Hi pino

Pereskia bleo is commonly known as rose cactus. It's a cactus that has leaves. My plants were grown from cuttings many years ago. They are now >2 metres tall & have a spread of 2 metres. I have lots of cuttings to give away everytime I prune the plants, but most people aren't keen on growing the rose cactus because of the sharp spines.

The daturas are grown from seeds given by Lam.
