The Little Garden

This is the little garden along our corridor. They are all managed by my mother who is quite a gardening enthusiast. I know nothing much about gardening and can't recognize most of her plants actually. Here are some of the plants we have. Sorry if I don't know the names of some of the plants. :P

Long beans:


Lady's Finger (no lady's fingers yet):

Pandan leaves:

Sweet potato leaf:

A type of herb called 马尾草, also good for diabetes and high blood pressure.

Pomegranate (石榴):
