We went away for a five-week holiday and came back, right in the middle of the heat wave. Thankfully, the damage was minimal. I was actually so happy to see my plants/trees again, though lots of tall weeds welcomed me too! After the heat went away, Paul (hubby) and Samuel (my first son) and I started the weeding work in the back garden. Some weeds were as tall as 1 metre.

Eversince my aloe vera has been placed under the patio where it gets indirect sunlight, it has gone green and new pups are developing at a faster pace. This concludes why it was very light green and had burnt-like tips whilst in the green house under direct sunlight and heat. It was too much for it. With several new pups growing, I hope to be able to propagate new aloe veras in new pots : My Trixee? Pixee? (just cannot get its name right) dwarf peach is growing well since my fungicide treatment and fertilising in winter. I was even surprised to find lots of peaches growing. However, I will try to stay on the pessimistic side as the branches are so close, I reckon the peaches have not much space for developing. Fingers crossed, none have dropped yet :
Kaffir lime has got lots of new leaves growing but it looks a bit unwell :
Pomegranate (left by its previous owner but I will gladly accept it :)) has put on lots of leaves but I have no clue what I should do with them...prune? :

I have not gone out into the garden for a few days. It has been windy. Today I had to water the pots to ensure they are not drying out. Even the oregano which likes it dry is wilting in the mini greenhouse. My pixee peach's blossoms are open. Sweet-smelling pink flowers. I gave it a water of charlie carp solution. It is also bearing green leaves.
