    Wow what a jungle!

    Any snakes around? LOL!

    Don't you get problems now that the rains are continuously pouring with too much water? Encourages rot specially on the orchids and mosquitoes larvae around.

    So sad about it...

    This place was completely gone because of house renovation, having the ground converted to concrete pavements. All of my plants were transferred in the highlands and ruined (plant shock) during the travel. I missed my garden in front of our house. I have nothing to say and do because my aunt (family administrator) came from Germany and made this thing happen.

    I hope I could find a place for my plants safer where nobody will never destruct...
