The Garden

One of the advantages of living in a landed property is the possession of a garden. We used to have two humongous mango trees but they had to be put down years ago due to complaints from the next door neighbor.

fragrant flower
Jasminum sambac (Arabian Jasmine)

this species is edible
Fortunella japonica (Round Kumquat)

spent an hour looking for the name of this species
Ixora graciliflora (Brazilian Flame of the Forest)

this one got really fat and heavy after four years
Myrtillocactus cochal (Candelabra Cactus)

In his spare time, my father tends to these plants with all kinds of fertilizers, some even homemade from err... the strained remains of blended soy beans and innards of cleaned fishes.
