    Default An early xmas gift.

    Last Saturday Jojo texted me to ask whether I am going to the Sunday Market
    that we frequent since that it has moved to a new location... and if I am
    interested with a variegated den since he is clearing up space for his new
    orchids... naturally I said yes.

    Here it is, I've seen this one before in the Bulacan Farm we visited last year
    decided not to pick it since it quite expensive.

    Oh and if someone here knows the name jojo and I would love to hear it....

    Thanks a lot Jojo, if you need to clear more space Im here to help you out.

    Interesting flower pattern/coloaration! I've never seen one like that before. Neat too how the leaf varigation fits with the flowers.

    never had the opportunity to visit the new location of the flea market, as i was busy tending my plants and helping my wife on house chores.

    just took some laylow profile to my wife pretending that i don't need anymore new plants

    Careful with that Boy, the wife might actually think that you really dont need any new plants. Me, i just play the bored husband... its a weekend and Im bored and tired the
    whole week working.... where's my reward? this approach normally works for me....
