I had a 2 week -vacation at home to savor our still fresh air, to replenish my bad breathing air in the big city where i live for work. Allergic asthma got me in the hospital for 4 days, so i needed a fresher environment. Since Monday/yesterday i am again in the city, returned for work and breathing the bad air again. I miss our air in the province, the birds, the bees, butterflies, and my plants. I am showing some of them here for GBBD. They kept me company during my recuperation/ staycation for 2 weeks.
For those of you still in winter, i hope i can give you some warmth with my photos.

Heliconia rostrata starting to produce individual bright flowers. In April-March, a lot of them will be hanging from each plant. Right: Alternanthera variegated.
...and my hoyas!
At left is Hoya valmayoriana, my first time to see it blooming. At the right is Hoya siariae. It is nice to know that the persons they are named after are my former professor and my friend, respectively.
