Hello Garden!

Northeast monsoon has been around casting a dry, cool atmospheric conditions in the area. Living in a tropical country, I can tell the ferns and  some plants alike are enjoying the cool, gentle air in the morning.

 The tree fern is producing more crosiers than I expected. Look at those exquisite hairy young stipes.

Fertile leaves of staghorns never fail me. I am always delighted to see how fast they grow in my humble, limited garden.

Coming home from a tough but wonderful day, the basal leaves greet me like welcoming hands telling me I am home, safe and sound with my family and the weariness gradually disappears...

I wonder why these crazy black ants never cease to leave this beautiful still unidentified bloom alone. This was given to me by an aunt.
Sweet unidentified bloom
My one and only jade plant is happily giving me colorful red flowerets. 
Crassula ovata
Even this thorny shrub is producing dainty pale lilac with yellow efflorescence at the center.
