Saturday Random Photos at My Dad’s House

My sister made Bamboo shoot soup for lunch, it’s a tradition Lao food and fresh bamboo shoot tasted a lot better than the ones from the can.

It has been raining, and the dark gloomy day is not all bad for photography. I think it made the colors more vibrant and I actually like it better than the sunny day. My dad’s garden is coming along nicely, and the plants finally take a growth spurt.

There will be plenty of cherry tomatoes this summer.

And chili peppers.

Cucumbers

Asian corns

Pears

My persimmon trees found themselves a nice home in my dad’s backyard.

Banana trees

Crab apple tree

The Rhododendron flowers don’t do too good in the rain. I hope there are still some in the mountain when we go camping.

Kaffir Lime tree

It’s still raining today and when I have a chance I will update my garden.

The Rhododendron is blooming at my dad’s house, I bet it’s blooming up in the mountain also. I can’t wait to see it in a few weeks.
My dad finally planted my two Persimmon trees in his backyard, he doesn’t have that much room left.
The Persimmon flowers are beautiful.
It’s definitely bamboo season, the bamboo shoots are sprouting in his yard also.  My dad poured a concrete barrier to prevent it from spreading and this one looks like it’s sprouting outside the barrier.
It has been very cold at night, and everything is growing slowly.

It’s two weeks before Mother’s Day, and the Azalea flowers are blooming.

Our family call this a Mother’s Day flower because we used to live in New York and the Azalea flowers bloom around Mother’s day.

It’s sad that my mom didn’t live long enough to see this, perhaps she is admiring it from haven.

These are my two Persimmon trees that I purchased (busa) from Wat Greensboro last Fall. I’m giving them to my dad to plant in his backyard since I don’t have any space in my own garden or backyard.

I kept them in my garage during the winter months.  I was very happy to see the leaves and surprised to see the young fruits.

A row of peppers.

String beans

Asian corns

My sister has a lot of weeding to do. I used my 70-200mm telephoto lens to photograph the garden this time so it wouldn’t show too much of the background, below are the cucumber plants.

Cherry tomato

Snow peas

Lemon grass

Pear

It has been raining and this makes me and the garden very happy.
