Here are some photos of my dad’s botanical prowess. I meant to take more, but my memory stick was full. I guess I have to wait until my next trip back home to see him. Click on photo to enlarge.
Left: A bouganvilla bearing multiple-colored flowers. Yup, from ONE plant. Gorgeous isn’t it? Right: I don’t know why the picture is not loading properly, but if you mouse over and click it you can get the image of a papaya tree. Dad has 4-5 papaya trees in his backyard. I hope I get to eat them. I love papaya, especially organic from Daddy’s garden!!
My dad grows lots of really awesome guavas, 2-3 varieties of the white meat ones, not the pink ones you get in Hawaii. He’s grown them so successfully that all his friends, their friends, and so forth all want one. This picture shows some smaller guava plants that he grows and sells or gives away. Yum. I wish he lived closer so I can have lots of pesticide-free yummy fruit.
