    Off topic; nice shots of the vines creeping.

    The Queen says:  No off topic, dear.  I’m more eager to show off my photography than crops. Ah yes!  That word I’ve been searching for – VINES!  Thanks dear 😉

    waaaa, bitter gourd in your garden! no garden here for me to grow veges. not that I’m a fan of bitter gourd, but growing anything in my house would be a miracle. surprisingly, my plants are still surviving… hehe!

    The Queen says:  If I have big and nice garden like yours, I won’t plant any vegies.  Would transformed them into a landscape with pergola and koi pond!

    wah, u really got green fingers hor? I like the 1st & 2nd pic! Very nice photos!

    The Queen says:  I think gardening especially planting veges is by luck only.  But after so many years planting, I kinda roughly know what should and should not do.

    I love bitter gourd! Used to grow them in my garden too, but they got really out of hand – they were creeping all over my other plants. So, hiya! cut them all off. Now, no more bitter gourds.

    The Queen says:  They creeps all over my fence.  Now they even hijack one of my laundry line!

    […] I love to stare blankly at the bitter gourd in my garden admiring them day and night. Soon before I knew it, the gourd turn from green to yellowish. I heaved with a big sigh. It has not even grown to adult size yet! Looks like my finger is not so green after all. *sigh…. […]
