Garden on the roof

Adele was enjoying her afternoon in mom's garden....

And the garden is on the roof!

Yes, we have a garden on the roof of our house :)

You don't believe me? You can see it from this below picture.... Our neighbor's roofs!
And yes, the garden looks kinda jungle! Hehehe...

Mom is really crazy about flowers/plants. Beside her favorite orchids, she has more than 350 pots of Adenium flowers:

Hundreds of Jasmine pots along the side of the roof.
Too bad, no blooming Jasmine flowers to be captured yet.

Euphorbia plants.

Let's go back to Adele.... Let's see what's she up to....

Adele, anything interesting?

  25. Hi Thor, Thank you for your compliment and also the award, it's really nice of you :)

    Hi Amber & Nala, Thank you.. thank you... :)

  26. Wow, I bet your dogs smell much better than ours after a walk. Beautiful!

  27. hey,

    Woofs! What a fun and beautiful garden! You must have so much fun running around all the pretty plants and smelling all the amazing smells! Good thing you are not afraid of heights! I might be afraid to be on a roof!


    p.s. To "lay down" my human raises her right arm and lowers it as she says "lay down" and then I move to the "lay down" position. She started teaching me with treats in her hand, so as her arm lowered the treat would go by my face and I would watch the treat. She would then lay it on the ground so I would get into the "lay down" position to get the treat. Good luck learning the position! I know you can do it! Us dogs are pretty smart! :->

  28. Hi Life with dogs, thank you for stopping by here, hope to see you around :)

    Hi Suka, thank you so much for your compliment and also the trick to "lay down". Hopefully, Selby will be able to teach us but then she need to have a lot of patient because we can be so excited and stubborn when it comes to treats, hehehe...

  29. I think it would be nic to spend the afternoon in your garden. Do you grow catnip?

    PS I love your food blog too!

  30. Hi it's me Bijou. Using mom's account to post on your bloggie again.

    Wow-wee! You sure have a pretty rooftop garden. One of the best mom has ever seen. I bet it takes forever to water all those pots. Or do you get enough rain that you don't have to?

    Wags & wiggles, Bijou

  31. Hi Beezer, yes, there are some catnip in our garden :) Oh.. you've visited my food blog, thanks!

    Hi Bijou, thank you for the compliment :) Well, mom has to water the garden twice a day, in the early morning and also afternoon, it's a lot of work but she loves it, hehehe...

  32. Hi Adele
    What a beautiful garden to play in. We love all the pink flowers. Your garden looks like a great place to play.
    Love Ruby & Penny

  33. I like rooftop garden! You can barbecue there!Have your tea there! with much more privacy.

  34. I want to live there, I want to live in your rooftop garden!
    Your mom definitely have a green thumb!
    Thanks Selba for responding to my begging about sending healing power to baby Axl. Your visit, support and keeping your paws crossed for baby Axl means a lot to me, buddy! He's getting better now, the latest news I heard!
    Love you

  35. Hi Ruby & Penny, Thank you for the compliments :)

    Hi 13th Panda, hahaha.. no, can not barbecue, too crowded with the plants.
