Added a pair of these grasses I got from nursery. I just love all sorts of grasses. I think they add movement and a beautiful rustling sound to any garden.

Wonderful. Really like the curved pathway. Do you fancy adding any roses to the landscape?

Hi KBW. There's an entire bed of roses right opposite it. That's why I didn't add any in here.

Here's a funny story. For a while now, I was quite worried about our hibiscus plant. My mom in law planted it a long time back. The leaves of the plant were whitish. I couldn't figure out if it was a decease of some kind. The maali said that all young leaves of hibiscus are white in the beginning but turn green after they mature. I knew that was hogwash. As all the other hibiscus on the streets were lush green. So I did a little research online, and found out that the one we have is a variegated variety called 'Snow Queen'. Sigh of relief

I used grow more 20:20:20 religiously for a month on the Mexican Hydrangeas and the blooms and the scent is remarkable this year.

Fantastic. The habiscus bush really looks great. BTW, are these young roses? Don't look strong..

Hi KBW I have no idea about these roses. I'll ask my mother in law about them.
