Blooming roses...

They are blooming great...
More and more everyday....
They smell nice too...
I feel like sitting next to the plant all day long.
But...of course I can't do that.
It's someone's house...someone I don't know at all....haha

I captured them every time I passed by...
So here are the pictures...
You can see how rapidly the bloom...





There are plenty more at other houses too.
With weird colours that I can't even name them.
I will try to capture them...for sure!
Bye now!

My Neighbour's Roses

 I wish I could have something like this in my backyard!!!

The roses are bigger than the size of my palm.
They smell nice too, seriously!

I can't wait to see these roses next week.
I am sure they will bloom beautifully.

Well, actually I have a rose plant in my backyard.
It is still young to have flowers.
It is at the corner, on your left.
You can barely see it because it is indeed too small...haha.

Bye now!

Garden Slugs and Snails

Garden slugs and snails are torturous...
They are like everywhere....
creeping actively at nights
eating all our small plants and vegetables.

This is a slug I found in my garden this morning.

and this is Mr.Snail

These are their cousins....

Do you still remember my flower bed?
The picture below was taken last month. 

 See what happened after a few days.
Only two to three days, the flowers gone.
After that, the snails and slugs
started to enjoy the leaves too.

One week later, the leaves were all gone.
They ate all my French Marigold leaves.

Thank God that they didn't touch the Lavender and Red Begonia.

Well, there are actually many ways to kill slugs.

1) Salt is the best when you want to kill slugs, but it is also hazardous to grow plants. So, we must not sprinkle the salt near our plants. Salt is also famous in killing weeds. I've tried many times and it works wonderfully well.

2) Other than using salt, slug repellent beads are effective if you sprinkle them regularly near your plants. I am not sure whether it really kills slugs.

3) The other solution is to use instant coffee powder. I've recently read an article that studies show that slugs hate caffeine. So simply sprinkle coffee powder (which of course contains caffeine) around our plants. I have tried but I am not sure whether this method is really effective because we don't know how much coffee powder is enough.

So, good luck with your garden slugs and snails!!!
