May 2012: a glimpse into our courtyard garden!

Though just a small courtyard with a space measuring 13 by 8 feet, this lovely rectangular void serves us very well indeed! Luxuriant foliage plants to greet us endlessly throughout the day and a private place to do some exercises to keep us healthy. Besides, it brightens our indoors with sunlight penetrating through the sliding glass doors and windows and refreshes air within our home. We just love this open space.

Even though the number of plants have been greatly reduced deliberately due to health reasons, as compared previously, whatever is being displayed currently is sufficient to delight and keep us extremely happy and contented!

Sharing pictures below to give you a glimpse into our courtyard garden. Enjoy!

Gorgeous Platycerium bifurcatum (Staghorn Fern) at our courtyard
We’re extremely delighted at how gorgeous this hanging pot of Platycerium bifurcatum (Staghorn Fern) appears now. The pups have matured remarkably well to create a lovely cascading fountain-like effect.

    What a nice clean look you have in there.
    The Staghorn Fern look very elegant.

    Ah, that is the wonderful thing about plants, it only takes a tiny new leaf in the smallest of spaces to make us smile and let us know that life will go on.

    Plus they rarely require daily walks, and are pretty unlikely to bark (any “quacks” you hear must be from your ducks, not from your plants!)

    @ Gillian : Thanks, your sweet words make our day! :)

    @ James : Appreciate your lovely comments, thanks. It’s in our nature to keep it clean and tidy… but thank goodness, we have a part-time maid that comes fortnightly to help with some cleaning chores. ;)

    @ Lifera : Yeah, nature is truly awesome! Thanks for putting a smile on my face with your witty remark! :)
