Proud of my lawn

I took to gardening a few years back.

After two failed attempts at getting grass to grow in a nice manner, I found the right guy to help and had the grass planted. I also got some Arecka palms and other plants and a small garden in my backyard. I also put some plants (including the lovely Philodanda) in the front of my house next to the portico.

The Arecka palms have really grown into fine sturdy beauties.

I've received a lot of compliments for my lawn. It has been a slow journey. You have to be patient with plants. No overnight results.

An aunt got swindled by a quack who used to give "injections" to her plants (some horrible concoction of steroids, I presume) which made the plants grow so fast that they looked abnormal even to the untrained eye. The poor plants did not survive beyond a few months though.

Patience is the key. Slowly but surely they will grow into the best parts of your house.

Every morning, as I sip my cuppa, I really enjoy taking in the freshness of the lawn and the breeze that blows through the palms.
