One of the plants that we planted that year, especially around the swimming pool, look like dead wooden sticks.
We got them from friends, and you just stick them into the ground. I was skeptical if it would work, but since this week and for the first time, they started flowering, despite the very dry weather this early 2016. We almost didn't give them water at all.
So if there are Filipino readers who recognize this, or believe that I am wrong, don't hesitate to add a comment or send me an email via this blog site.
