The other day, I visited the Xixi flower market by accident. It locates at the foot of a hill and some of the shops are on the hillside. The market looks beautiful and quiet. It's a pity that there are only a few customer. What's more, I saw a shop that I heard of long ago and wanted to visit.
The clematis are beautiful, however, hard to keep. I find passionflower is beautiful and easy to keep. The following one was found in the market.
It's late autumn here. The lowest temperature is below 10 degree. So only a few plants still blossom. Most of them only show green leaves. It's better than no plants.
I have received the Clematis, however, they are smaller than I expected. Luckily, they are healthy. I hope they will grow fast and blossom next year.
Yaoyao grows bigger and more naughty. We need not to look after him, however, we have to spend time on teaching him. He has bad temper, so it's not easy to teach him. Perhaps we have to learn some skills from the internet.
How about you, my dear friends? I guess it's cold in your hometown.
Have you ever heard of the Red Tea Fungus. It's a kind of fungus made up of Lactobacillus, mycrozyme and vinegar bacteria. All these bacterias are good for the health of stomach. So I bought some on the website and keep them in glass bottles. I feed them with sugar and red tea. After a few days, I can drink the water, very acidic. When half of the water is left, I have to add water, sugar and red tea. It's a little funny, I hope the water will benefit my stomach.
I bought three bird of paradise, one was dead long ago. I put the other into two seperate pots. Three years later, I found that the bird of paradise in small pot grows better than the other one. I can't explain it.
As you remember, I bought some cheap clematis from the website, the detail gave some seeds of bowl lotus. Only one is alive now, I put it in the washbowl. It looks healthy and I'm looking forward to its flower.
I bought the clematis of Bieszczady(http://clematis.ho ngyue.com/clematis/clematis31. php) and Fujimusume(http://clematis.ho ngyue.com/clematis/clematis14. php) on the website recently. They are two years old, and cost me over 20 dollars in all. I can only see the bud of Fujimusume. It's really not a good idea to buy Clematis now. Maybe I should buy it next spring. Next to them is the Rooguchi, which has many buds now. As for the beauty of worcester, it "died" again when I was busy. I'm sure it will be ok, but I have to wait for its recovery.
I have noticed that I haven't been here for two months. It's really a long time. I'm not busy these days, but I have to prepare for a register test. I'd like to share the Clematis with you.
The Rugoochi has more flowers than I could hope. Though it is still small, but it has over 15 flowers and still blooms.
I thought the Beauty of worcester was dead as I showed the picture long ago. However, it doesn't. It has enough leaves now, and I think it will blossom soon.
As for the five cheap Clematis which were purchased from the website, well, one has been dead, two keep static, only the rest two grow obviously. I'm sure they are Clematis, but I'm not sure whether they are the types that I want. Many people said that Clematis can't be so cheap, the retailer cheated you. And they also persuaded me not to spend too much time on it. But I don't give up.
There is something wrong with my clematis, can anyone help me.
The new leaves of Rugoochi look unhealthy.
The leaves of the Beauty of worcester fade.
I bought five kinds of Clematis from the website----taobao. Very cheap (1.4 dollar each one), but real.
After one day, its head comes out of the soil.
And I also bought some new pots for the clematis.
The potato plants grow big. Some have small potatos.
The verbene hybride grows so fast. I love it best.
Worse news: The worcester may be dead. I found the bottom of the trunk rotted. The trunk was so dry, but I still cut it into several parts and put them in the water, hope any miracle would happen. Maybe the root is still alive, then there is still hope.
I bought two strelitzia three years ago and kept them in small pots. The following picute shows one plant. It didn't grow leaves in the past spring, however, it grows a big leaf now. I know it won't blossom in such a small pot. But it may not blossom in subtropics. Anyway, the leaves are beautiful.
Since the Beauty of Worcester lost its head, there is only one hope this year. And now, we can see its only flower. When the flower turns down, I'll put it on the alcony.
Do you know tulip tree?There are two in my high middle school. Very big, over 10 meters in height, however, I only saw two flowers when I was in the school. The other day, I found many tulip trees in the research center, they have so many flowers. I took a picture of the top of the tulip tree on the fifth floor.
I bought two strawberry plants last winter when the strawberry is very expensive. According to my calculation, when the strawberry got ripe, I can be payed back the money. However, only about two strawberry got ripe during the winter. However, the strawberry grow fast in the spring, and I have so many plants now, and it's still keepin growing, I have to buy pots now. The following picture only shows one strawberry mother and her babies.
Remember my Begonias? I found they are interesting.
I bought two types of Begonia, one is Dragon Begonia, the other is wax Begonia. I kept them in my study room during the winter. Some weeks ago, when the weather became warm, the Dragon Begonia blossomed immediately. And the flowers has lasted for over half a month, perhaps even one month.
And I found that it has two kinds of flowers. See carefully in the following picture.
I never get the seeds, however, I always see some flesh flowers on the floor.
The Wax Begonia has flowers recently, its color is so red, even the branch to te flower is red. You can also see the stamen (the shadow) in the flower.
I think the card camera can get beautiful pictures. Nevertheless, I still want to get a Single lens reflex camera, the Sony Nex 5R. What's your suggestion, my friends?
I bought two pots of clamatis one week ago. One is Rugoochi and the other is The Beauty of Worcester. They are very small, but expensive, almost 10 dollars each one. The Beauty of Worcester has one bud, but it has losted its head, I guess the bird ate it.
Some days ago, I went to a county of Hangzhou, named Jiande. It is in the mountains, very beautiful. And I also visited one of its town, named Mei town. It has a history of over 1700 years.
It's the highway entrance of Jiande county.
I found some flowers in the mountains of Mei town.
The other day, I went to the hospital and had a physical examination. Everything is ok except for low white blood cell concentration. I know it will cause ill easily, well, I've caught cold. The doctor will reexamine it after a few weeks, hope it will be ok. I will do exercise later everyday.
I find a lot of new photos in my camera, I know I've been away for long time. Yeah, I've been busy in studying. You know I missed the test because the company forgot to pay the money. So I have to take the test this again.
We went to WU mountain and took some pictures. Yaoyao is strong and healthy now. He can take a bottle of 5L oil now. I can't help to kissing him when I see him.
There are some orchid in the lab, one teacher uses them to study organic utilizer. I forget to say that I'm working in a lab of the agriculture research center to test soil samples from my company.
There are also some sakula trees in the center. It was taken from the top of the tree, so you may feel different.
So many flowers, that the tree becomes a white ball.
The red one is Malus spectabilis, with so many flowers too. The camera lens is dirty, I have to clean it.
It's so warm yesterday, the highest temperature is about 20 degree. You know it's only maintain about 10 degree. I changed the work time, so I was free yesterday. My son grows faster, he can undertand most of our talk. His elder sister was at home yesterday, so they played together.
There is a tall Mechelia Alba tree in the research center. Trees under 3 meters are very common. But like it, over 10 meters in height, is seldom. So I took picture of it just now. It is raining, so I can't smell the fragrance. But I believe once the weather becomes sunny, I can smell the fragrance.
The following picture is Chinese flowering apple, it is also called Malus Spectabilis Borkh.It has many red flowers, with the effect of its green leaf, it becomes much beautiful.
I have been away for almost 3 months. It's a long time. I'm glad to see everyboday here. Er, I seldom use English these days, so I may make some grammer mistakes today.
My son is over 2 years. It's much easier to communicate with him now, though he is troublesome boy. When I reviewed my photos just now, I found an interesting photo of him. It was taken when he was nearly 2 years old. When his mother gave him a piece of orange, he bit it without his hands, we didn't teach him. It was interesting.
The other day, I bought a broom. When he saw it, he snatched it from me. And cleaned the floor like we do. He was satisfied with what he got. By the way, we live in our new house now.
I bought a dolphins spend several months ago. It is beautiful. But I guess it is dead now since the weather is cold now. I guess I was cheated by the retailer.
You know I'm a site remediation engineer. One day when I was on a deserted site, I found an interesting flower. I don't know its name. Can anybody tell me?
The other day, I bought a plant, named Begonia ‘Dragon Wing. It is very easy to keep. I give it only water everyday, however, it looks healthy. The leaves are green while the flowers are red, so they look very beautiful. Each leaf axil has one string of flowers, so there are so many flowers.
Next to it is Wax Begonia which has fewer flowers but more leaves. I think the Begonia ‘Dragon Wing is much more beautiful than Wax Begonia.
My child, YaoYao, he is bigger and over 90cm in height now.However, he doesn't like eating rice. So he is thin. What's more, he always cries when he could't get what he wants.
