Marinduque-A Gardener's Paradise
As an avid gardener, I found the climate of Marinduque ideal for growing not only orchids, hibiscus and bougainvillas but also euphorbias, cacti, succulents, plumerias and Ylang Ylang trees. Most of the above plants are easy to grow and almost pest-free except for the two varieties of hibiscus ( white and yellow). The top photo is my favorite orchid, a blue orchid called "The Princess Mikasa".
The middle photo is my Ylang Ylang flowers. The bottom photo is my favorite hibiscus, a canary-yellow(light orange) variety. If you need additional information on the culture of the above plants, please let me know.
My collection of orchids and hibiscus is posted on my blog

Do I do all the gardening by myself? The answer is no, I do "gardening by mouth", since I have one full time gardener and one temporary worker on as "needed basis" maintain the landscaping for the five acres of beach resort property. I bet you are envious! I do not blame you for feeling that way. Enjoy the flowers! Cheers! Have a Good Day to You ALL! May 2012 be a productive year to you, also!
