I’ve been busy gardening.  I take care of the frontyard. My mother takes care of the backyard.  I’ve already spent so much for pots and plants. I’m obsessing on bromeliads.

 

I also bought petunias to replace the dead ones.   Garden business   here in the US is a billion dollar industy.   Every year , we buy so many flowering plants for so-called instant garden.  Then they all die in winter.  6_6

I need to buy some more petunias for the hanging pots.

 

And I mowed the lawn this morning.  Do you know what we use to clean the pathways ? Nope, not a rake.  We use ” walis  tinting” , which we buy at the Filipino supermarket.  It’s very efficient and easy to use, for some reason.  The only drawback is that I have to bend a little while sweeping and it doesn’t take long before my back starts aching.

 

Walis means broom. I don’t know what tinting means.  It’s made of dried  “veins” of  coconut leaves.

I also bought a new iPhone, and ta dah  ! an Apple watch ! !  I didn’t have a mobile for almost a week.

Please check out my anime/manga /video games blogsite  @ https://2megaworthitwordpresscomblog.wordpress.com/              I have a new entry…. Violet Evergarden ,  a Netflix original anime. I gave this a 10/10  rating. Even if you’re not an anime fan,  this  is  one that is definitely worth watching.  It won’t be a waste of your  precious time, I assure you.
