Episode 222 - Dracaena Fragrans II

Recent pictures of the plant. It is expected that it will flower within the next few days. Will post new photos.

To avoid an attack from Miao Miao the cat (who loves to pick flowers), we moved the plant to another room.

Episode 221 Dracaena Fragrans

Can you see the flower bud?

I purchased this Dracaena Fragrans for Gogo a few years ago in the flower market. In Hong Kong it is called Brazilian Iron Tree.

It was then just a segment of stem - cutting out from the stem of a large Dracaena Fragrans tree - with a few leaf buds only and had no root at all. Gogo wished to keep it so we bought it home.

We first kept it in a vase with some water. The plant grew larger with leaves and roots developed. We then transferred it to the soil.

It appears to be rare and unusual for a Dracaena Fragrans flowers in winter.

Episode 220 - Pui O Campsite

Bay No. 38 and My family's tent

Sunset at Pui O

Located next to Pui O Beach, Lantau Island, Pui O Campsite is an ideal place for camping as it is surrounded by beautiful scenery where there is clear water, fine sand, shady trees and beautiful sunset.

My family had a wonderful camping holiday at the Pui O Campsite recently. As you can see from the photos above, the camping bays are neat and tidy.

There is no advanced booking. The camping bays are available on a first come first serve basis. What you need to do is to register at the management office at the entrance of the Campsite.

The facilities in the Campsite include 52 camping bays, barbecue area, pavillons / arbours,
changing rooms and toilets.

About 15 minutes by bus from the Mui Wo Pier.
