My wife loves to spend her time in our yard puttering around, while I enjoy staying inside the house to watch TV and take naps between commercials LOL. Not really. She particularly adores her roses and when they are in bloom, I will admit that they are more pleasant to look at than my kamote plants, which she convinced me to get rid off. Here are some of her roses around our house.

Hey! Don't get rid of those Kamote Plants! At least they're edible, instead of these flowers which only look beautiful LOL!

Wonderful and colorful flowers!

Reena, I love nature, too and I especially enjoy hiking, camping and fishing and of course, a little bit of amateurish photography.

docgelo, we are lucky here because we have fair weather year-round.

HalfCrazy, too late now they are gone LOL. My wife said the bird droppings on my kamote leaves make them inedible. Yeah, right!

I think your wife has a green thumb unlike me, I electrocute most of my plants actually all of them hahaha and now they all died :-) what do you call that term then? "static thumb?" hahaha

Next time please share your kamote photos, I miss kamote tops now, here in Japan they don't sell that, only kamote. Even the ampalaya, they don't sell the leaves only the bunga hahaha (ok ba sa taglish??).

Sardonyx, my kamote plants are all gone now. BTW,they are easy to tend, once planted they are "on their own" LOL. We are lucky here because a lot of oriental groceries carry ampalaya and kamote tops and everything else we have back home...almost.
