  1. The asparagus in our garden is finally good for eating, after 4 long years of waiting. We’ve had 6 meals with it already. After seeing your photo, I need to learn how to make Hollandaise sauce for the next batch!
    Those poppies look like the petals are made of shiny tissue paper.
    Your garden looks lovely.

  2. Holy cow, these are SO AMAZING! Your garden is extraordinary, as is the photo you took of it. The poppy is so pretty – I don’t know that we have those around here. I don’t remember a lot of people planting them. I think my favorite is the swan picture – babies!

  3. I don’t remember every seeing swan babies in the wild, but I remember a childhood story about the ugly duckling and I think baby swans are called cygnets, which is an strange word now that I think about it.

    Your garden is looking really good, especially in comparison to mine. We have a few flowers blooming (but none as lovely as those oriental poppies). As for the vegetable patch, the carrot tops and spinach leaves are maybe 2 cm high right now (less than an inch), so it’s going to be a while before we enjoy any home grown produce here.

    Also, I confess I had to look up “Ganesha” and “Unggoy”. I figured they referred to the statues, but didn’t know quite what the represented. Always happy to learn something new from other posts in this challenge. Thanks!

    1. thanks, GeoKs ๐Ÿ™‚ for telling us about cygnets, that’s new for me! cool about your carrots and spinach, We used to have carrots before, but they’re taking a lot of space in the garden, We just have some herbs. We’ve got some chillis in the pots, though. Ganesha is our Hindu elephant deity and Unggoy is Tagalog for chimp or monkey. They are our icons or statues in the garden. Cheers for now ๐Ÿ™‚
