Shopping for Flowers

I love shopping.. for all kinds of things but shopping for flowers is different from shopping for other things. You are, after all, buying home something that has a life of its own. And so you will have to like how it looks.. and think about whether you are able to take good care of it.

World Farm is my favourite place for buying flowers.

I really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful plants they have at World Farm. For some reason, they grow them very well - the hibiscus, for example, have large beautiful leaves with HUGE flowers. Ms Flamenco used to be one of those beautiful hibiscus plant.. In my balcony now though, she is skinny, with smaller leaves and smaller flowers.

I haven't had too much time lately for gardening, so I decided to bring home just a few new plants.

A mini orchid my sister-in-law brought home. 
I like it so much!

Haha, your wooden deck is in the exact shade and colour as mine! World Farm is my favourite place too. They have everything. When my son was looking for some exotic plants, all we had to do is ask the sales manager.

I love buying plants from World Farm too but I don't know how to cope with the insects inherent in their plants. But they sure have a wide array of selection. Even window shopping there makes me happy. =)

BTW, Far East Florist is having a month-long sale (ends 18 Sept). I picked up some new plants from them last week.
