Gifts From Malaysia

My good (blog) friend Stephanie had told me recently that she would like to share some seeds with me.  Yesterday when the door-bell rang I was thrilled  to see the Malaysian postage on the packet. And my address written on it in Steph’s beautiful handwriting.

Not only did she send a variety of seeds but warm socks and candy as well. I have never grown freesias and hibiscus from seeds. She even mailed me the site about how to grow the hibiscus seeds. There’s so much to look forward to….in sowing new plants  especially when someone you’ve known through blogging has so generously sent them from across borders. Stephanie is a keen gardener and has an amazing collection of the most unique plants. Every time I visit her, I see/learn something new. Thank you Steph! I hope they’ll thrive in my care!

    What fun and excitement! and a wonderful friend.

    I am already looking at seeds even thought it is currently 30 degrees F. Consider that March is less than 2 months away. 😉

    I wish you a healthy and happy New Year Kanak and one filled with many blessings!

  5. Sowing new seeds sounds like a great way to begin the New Year! Wishing you a happy New Year and also thank you visiting my blog a while ago, when I was freshly pressed.
    It was appreciated! Best of luck with your seeds!

    You are most welcome Kanak! I have enjoyed and gained much from reading your posts and all beautiful plants/pictures. Thanks to you actually! I am sure these seeds will do well under your care. Happy planting! Btw, that fruit printed on the stamp, Belimbing, is one of our popular local fruits. Happy new year to you and your family 😀

    The fruit on the stamp looks like the local Kamranga.If so,the Latin name would be Carambola.

    Didi is this the Kordoi tenga? We used to have a tree in our Yard where every morning and evening we would get whole flocks of parrots and parakeets raiding the ripe fruits.
