The condition of the garden after the evacuation

Not much left when I returned home.

One of them was a hen who left behind when my family evacuated. I am very thankful that my chicken was still alive.

Meanwhile, I found my starfruit tree flowering, the common bean plant is also growing and chilli plant which still bear fruits.

These are photos of the mount merapi 3 days before I evacuate my family to my friend's place.

Currently mount merapi can not be seen because clouds covered.

Mount Merapi eruption

Mount Merapi erupted two days ago at around 10 am (Nov 1, 2010), which causes people to panic. This is the third eruption, bigger than the first and the second one. I could see the eruption from the front of my house.

I took this picture when I'll pick up my son from preschool.

New Colletion: Wax Flower

New Colletion: Wax Flower -->
Have you heard about Wax Flower before?
I read about this plant in Idea Garden magazine a year ago. I did interest in this plant, but I didn't know where to get this plant. Last week, when I and my family visited a nursery inside of parking area of Carrefour, I saw wax flowers in pots. They were Hoya carnosa, or Grandma's old fashioned wax flower.
Wax Flower (Hoya carnosa)

The owner of the nursery informed me that a pot of wax flower was IDR 25, 000,- (US$ 2,5). Then I asked my wife to bargain it. And thanks to my wife, I could bring home two pots of wax flower for only IDR 25,000,- (US$ 2,5).
