39 - Day - Writing Challenge

Hi Peeps.

It's the time to revive the holiday challenge, once again. I plan to write as much as possible. I plan to do it on a daily basis. I plan to go small but to do it consistently. Hence, the key to this challenge is CONSISTENCY!

By right, today is Day 2/39. I'll officially begin the challenge tomorrow at the break of dawn. As for today's post, please relish the clear blue November morning sky. This picture was taken this morning.

Dreams vs Perseverance ...

Hi lovely people.

I'm back. 
Apologies for the long hiatus in blogging, as I'm after my dream. 
Due to that dream, I stopped blogging and gardening. 
I ceased weeding and fertilizing. 
I didn't trim the plants in my garden. 
As a result, my roses rarely bloomed. 
My bougainvilleas refused to grow. 
My hibiscus and hydrangeas were attacked by aphids and deadly fungi. 
Most of them are in a sorry state now.
Hope to revive them soon.
Right after catching my dream!
I believe in this quote...

'Don't let someone else catch your dream. 
You be the dream catcher.'

Hi Hydrangeas!

Good morning peeps.

It's me, the blog owner. I'm back after a year and half deserting Dusita Vista Blog!

This is a warming up post. I have lots in my mind but to put them down here, boulders and blocks need to be pushed aside. I'll do it. Soon!

For this comeback post, I would like to say 'Hi' with Hydrangeas!

Day 23/37


Procrastination is like a credit card: It's a lot of fun until you get the bill!
~ Christopher Parker

I'll do it tomorrow as I still have lots of time. Relax!
~ Chinda Sengsuwan

I'm procrastinating, still! I've been thinking about the 'bill' and all the consequences, yet I couldn't bring myself to focus.

The following quotes are a form of graphical reminders ...

This is the best!

Start DOING!

Day 22/37


Hard work brings prosperity, playing around brings poverty.

Presenting Prosperity roses. The second flushes of blooms come after the pruning and cutting.

Work hard but play well!

Day 20/37


What's in a name? 

This ruby red foliage plant is Loropetalum (Loropetalum Chinense), also known as Chinese Fringe Flower.

I've planted these plants in Dusita Vista Garden a year ago without knowing what it's called until one of the FB Flowers Group members brought up this matter.

According to the plants experts, Loropetalums show excellent versatility in the landscape. They are attractive when grown in clusters or mixed screens as well as foundation plantings, single species and bonsai. 

Their deep plum-pink foliage contrasts well with other shrubs and the profuse fuchsia fringe-like blooms make a great all time show. They are fast growing, and sun and drought tolerant too.

I'm now the proud owner of two pots of blooming Chinese Fringe Flowers and I happen to have two healthy plants on the ground, guarding the front gate as well.

Happy Gardening!

Day 19/37


This shot was taken yesterday, a cool Monday morning. I don't know her name but I love her immensely.

If there's a special camera that can capture not only her beauty but also her fragrance...

Day 18/37


It's raining cats and dogs.

It's been raining since dawn and it rains the whole day.

Dusita Vista is being enveloped in thick mist.

The scenery is heavenly.

The air is cool and refreshing.

Day 17/37


I've got my dream plants two days ago and it's time to re-pot them.

The plants in the list are hydrangea, the Lady of the Night and angelonia.

I got the task done with the help of my hubby, of course. We used up three bags of compost and two bags of baked garden soil.

I really hope these new members of Dusita Garden will adapt to the new environment soon.

The picture shown above has nothing to do with the blog post today. It's YTT, Yesterday Today and Tomorrow and it's a whole lot different post.

Happy Gardening!
