First stop. This papaya just grew itself in our garden. My mom said maybe because of the seeds of the papaya that dropped along the way as we threw it. Nature has blessed us with this tree.
Underneath it, we have this chicken that we got from our farm. This is a native chicken and I don't know when will my Dad will going to kill it for food. Well, maybe for my birthday. Old people believe that to have luck, one should kill a chicken and shed its blood with a sign of a cross in the birthday celebrant's forehead.
We also have this white-feathered chicken which we call "Bantam". I think this one is a lucky charm for Chinese. We have this chicken for 2 years now.
Now, for our flowers. My mom loves this Euphrobia flowers which my Dad's friend gave to us. We have many of these before in different colors, from green to red, to yellow and white, and pink to orange. But my Mom also gave the cuttings to her friends and to my late Grandma, who also loved flowers. Here they are.
And, lastly, these bananas are not really a part of our garden, but I just like to share them with you. My Dad got this from our farm and, oh, how we really love to eat bananas. Some are not yet ripe but some are already available to eat.
Taken just outside the kitchen.
And these, well, I think they will give these to our friend neighbor.
And another papaya tree is still growing. I think my sister place the seeds in the pot and it is just still growing there.
(P.S. I think I know why the pictures didn't download last time. It is because I didn't compress or resize the photos. My mistake and my apology.)
