Another flowering yucca



When I came home from work last Friday, I saw another flowering yucca this time in my frontyard. Either the weather is really very hot these days causing my yuccas to bloom or am going to be lucky anytime soon.


I wish I could say the same thing for my other plants...the succulents. Even if they are surviving the hot weather, they still look very dry.

Winning entry

Last Friday, I got an email at work that I won a ticket for 4 to the Sydney Taronga Zoo for submitting an entry in the Global Qantas Family Day competition. The competition was to write creatively in 25 words or less why I will have fun and enjoy a day in the zoo with my family.

In 25 words or less, I wrote "Me and my family will have fun and enjoy a day in the zoo as we will be spending the day getting re-acquainted with the animal environment". And for this winning entry, I won One (1) Family Pass for Two (2) Adults & Two (2) Children to the Taronga Zoo. The family pass is going to save me about 180 bucks and will also give me a chance to finally meet Luk Chai, the Australian-born elephant.

For sure I will have a great day. Will be bringing my camera so I could take pictures and share the experience I have with everyone at work.

 

Cyber-Friendship Quilt

In 2010, I will be embarking on a new project which I would call the cyber-friendship quilt. I am going to nominate several themes and will be inviting friends and families to contribute to the quilt they want to be a part of. Nominated themes could be about friendship, travel, hobbies, favourite food or if you are into nature your favourite landscape... all for fun! And what would really make it more impressive and memorable is if the images you submit are all your original works of art....your own ideas....your own friendship message and dedication....your own photos taken from your own camera. Each block that is contributed will have to be signed by the contributor.

This is a big challenge but am very excited...cant wait for it to start. More details will be released soon.

National Craft Month


This month of March is National Craft Month. Am sure it is not only happening in the US but all around the world. For those crafters out there, help celebrate this month with new projects to craft...or if you have any unfinished projects take the time to finish any of them this month. For those who are new to crafting whether paper, fabric or mixed media perhaps now is the time to learn how to craft as a way of celebrating the event. As we all know crafting is a good way to relax, release all stresses in our daily lives. You will not know what benefits you can get out of learning how to craft until you actually do it....and believe me it really changes the way you think and your way of life.

My Garden - Idriess Place Chapter 7


It has been a long time since I last blogged about my garden. I have been too busy that I didnt seem to have the time to go and see my plants. Very hot summer days also was a factor in not being able to check them out not even my frontyard.

Last Saturday, while hanging my laundry out to dry, I finally noticed that unwanted creeping vines have really grown over the fence so much so that there was no longer a sunlight coming through in my area, not even a bit of sunlight as it was fully covered by the creeping vines. So I decided to do a little cleanup of my backyard and that is when I saw that 2 of my yucca plants have actually bloomed flowers and I never even knew about it.


Based on my estimate, the beautiful white flowers must have grown for about a month already as they seemed to look like they were about to start wilting. I wouldnt want to miss it for the world to see my yuccas blooming flowers. Without blinking an eye, I went inside the house, took my camera and started taking pictures of my backyard garden again most especially with my precious yuccas that bloomed flowers. The last time one of my yuccas in my frontyard bloomed a flower was in 2008.

.

Here is the pile of creeping vines from the neighbour that I cut off and how the area looked like after I cut the vines off.

My backyard still needs more care and clean-up though.
