The Plant Who Lived

Still in the spirit of Harry Potter, I shall now tell you of an amazing thing. The bulbs I planted had not only grown but also came into flower, and such wonderful ones that my neighbour cast envying looks at it each time she was in her garden.

Ah, aren’t they gorgeous? The only darn thing was that it bloomed while I was in Singapore and died upon my return. So while I wait for the last bulb to burst into blooms this month, my grass continues to wither and choke on weeds back home in Klang.

the flowers look gorgeous! the orientals are about to bloom soon...did the h2o damage it?

so far so good for the oriental. but there's plenty of black insects attracted to the buds. there's an ecosystem going on there, with aphids and caterpillars and spiders all over the plant. don't know why this one is creating more attention from insects as compared to the other one.

hmm it doesnt sound good to have black insects as they may eat the petals before they bloom - how large are the buds now?
