Home Gardening Sunflowers For The First Time

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY.... I think... this is the first time I post up a flower post!

I am not into plants but I do like to plant vegetables though.  Recently, my neighbour gave me some okra seeds to plant and currently, they are still growing in my two pots in front of my house.  That is all I have, two pots of okra and they are still in their "baby" form.  I will show it when they have fully grown, not now... keeping my fingers crossed...LOL....

In this post, I want to share my son's plant, he bought some sunflower seeds online and last month, the package came.  Inside the big package, there are one packet of sunflower seeds, 12 small pots and 4 bigger pots plus a packet of soil.  This is the first time I see my son doing his own "germination" and in weeks to follow, the seeds grew and for the past week, the flowers began blooming!  We were so delighted... LOL... First time in history, we planted something and they bloomed so nicely.  Of course, my neighbour assisted us cos he has green fingers unlike us.  LOL... 

We did an experiment while planting these sunflower.... we planted some behind our house and two pots in front.  Same timing but the difference is a lot.  While the back sunflowers bloom and bloom, the ones in front was just starting to bud.  Needless to say, the stems were different too... those planted behind were "fatter" than those planted in front of my house, they looked "malnourished!"  

Budding.... 
Going to bloom.... 
Bloomed... so beautifully....
Maybe behind the house has more sunlight....
And standing tall too... 1 meter in height...
After a week... it started to wither... 
The head looks larger in size.... 
And here is my malnourished sunflower in front of my house....
It started blooming while the ones at the back started to wither.... 
And it is not as tall as the back ones....
Anyway... 
While one retires, one starts to live... 
at least for a week!

  1. Did you get to eat the seeds from your sunflowers? Like eating kuaci?

  3. Gorgeous! So maybe your son will have a green thumb. I agree, there must have been a difference in how much sun they each got.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
