my e-journal: a cluster of ___ (guess what?), flowers and cupcakes

Before anything else, starting today, i would be posting some of the things i do from day to day. Well, not doing it everyday but i wish i could especially if there’s really some interesting stuff to share with you. Anyway, i would label it as my e-journal and this is my first entry.

While walking around the garden this morning, i chanced upon this all clustered up at the doorstep. I think the pattern they made is pretty awesome.



The scent of the citrus tree flowers is so refreshing. Every twig has flower bulbs ready to open. Sooner, i would be harvesting lovely fruits from this tree.

My jasmine is in full bloom too and emitting a sweet scent especially in the evening. Sometimes i pick some unopened ones and make leis out of them.



It rained last night and i love the raindrops on the zamia leaves.  They look like heaven-sent crystal beads that are cooling the plants during this hot summer days.

I could stay a while longer in my garden but i really need to do some errands. It’s enrollment time and off i go to my daughter’s school then had a very late lunch at the mall. Here’s what we had for dessert… cupcakes.



The cupcakes are from the newly-opened Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and they taste so heavenly good. Going back again to try other flavors.

Well, it’s been a busy day but it’s all worth it. By the way, can you guess what’s in the first photo forming a cluster? Not sure what it is? click here for the answer.

      Thank you gracie.. Hmm.. I wonder why? Maybe it does’t like cold weather that much.. Not sure though… Mine blooms almost all year round especially when i trimmed parts of the tree that’s been blocking sunshine.. Now that it’s receiving lots of sunshine, it blooms even more..

    Hi Elizz, beautiful set of photos … your garden is blessed with gorgeous blooms! however, i clicked on your link re the cluster, is that what it really is? i am shocked! i hope they are not by your doorstep anymore. although the article was specific that they swarm for mating reasons only … oh well, they looked pretty awesome in their nesting mode anyway 🙂 would love to read more of your e-journal posts … have a blessed day!

      hi april, the cluster thing, yup, they are flying termites and i really hope they wouldn’t build their nest in my place because they are indeed so destructive.. thanks for loving my e-journal and i really wish to share more .. have a lovely day 🙂

        thanks bebs.. even if we still don’t have termites in our place, there’s someone who comes here every 6mos for the treatment, costly but it’s the only way to prevent infestation..

    I had to look up what was in the first pic. Unbelievable that they made such a cluster.
    I can just imagine how sweet the smell of your garden
