Five years ago, I was very excited when YK's tutor gave me a cutting of a Bauhinia kockiana. I had envisioned clusters of attractive flowers cascading down the trellis. The trouble is, it's such a slow growing plant, I watched it grow so slowly through the years while looking longingly at the magnificent blooms in other people's garden.
Funny thing is, the plant started to flower profusely after we moved out almost a year ago. It has now crept up the tall dracaena plant, smothering it with dazzling flowers. The bright yellow alamanda adds to the riot of colours.
Now that nobody's really tending to the garden, the plants are unkempt and unruly, yet so beautiful in their own way.
