thursday, 6:00 in the morning, batangas public market
we were going to buy food to cook for lunch and i was also thinking of an advanced birthday gift i am going to give my "ate" (older sister/cousin).
i had something in mind but when i saw these beauties.
i knew i had to take them home.
so, immediately paid the seller (without haggling! silly me!) and gave these babies a new home in our garden.
empress candle plant
pink hydrangea....at last! striking out one item in my wish list :)
bright orange celosia
eugenia..according to the seller
and this is my ate's birthday gift..an orange rose.
i thought this would be perfect as she always wanted something unique in her garden, something that our neighbors do not have.oh well, there goes my allowance for a few days, but how could you resist these pretty flowers?
at least i now have a gift for my "ate." i do hope she likes it even though it seemed that i have bought more gifts for myself..heehee!
