I am home in my tropical garden again. I am happy to be here around my beautiful plants and flowers but sad to say, our beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dog Angus who lived in the Philippines since 2011) passed away a few hours after my hubby and I arrived to our second home Philippines, from our long journey from Germany.
|The graveyard of our beloved Angus. He will be missed forever.|
Angus just waited for us to come back to our Philippines home. He used to greet us with wagging tail and hugged us when we came back home from Germany. He was so sick and was confined to our city Vet clinic the day my hubby and I started our travel. When we arrived at the airport of our destination, we immediately collected him from the clinic and brought him home. Angus wagged his tail when he recognised my voice. I saw that he was happy seeing me but tears came both from our eyes. Angus and I knew, we had a few hours to say goodbye to each other. It was supposed to be a happy day but it was not. He reached the age of 11 years old. We buried Angus in my beautiful garden just in front of our veranda, surrounded by many flowering plants where he used to pee before.

My tropical garden is getting wild. It looks like a mini forest now. I know, I can't trim the plants in a day. I need time and a helper who can climb. Our mango tree should be trimmed too but there are still fruits hanging in it. I have to wait that all fruits are gone, harvested in any way. Mind you, I am happy when it is windy because the ripe mango fruits just fall down on the ground. The pomelo tree and carambola/star fruits are bearing plenty of fruits as well. The fruits should be all harvested before the fruit trees will be trimmed. There is one fruit tree that bears fruits for the first time. The rambutan fruit tree of my late father. The fruits are still green and I am hoping that I could taste the fruits before going back home to Germany.
Here are some new photos of my beautiful flowers 🌺

I could post more of my plants but I think it is enough for now. I don't know the names of some of my flowers in my garden. If you like, you can comment the names of the plants you know. It would be very much appreciated. I have not written on my blogs for more than 2 months. Didn't really feel into writing. I am still mourning, you know. I miss Angus roaming around my plants and just sitting silently on my lap.
Thanks for reading and God bless us all.
