My Dream Garden!!!

At last, I have found "My Dream Garden", not too far away from my home.

I know...I know...that there are so many beautiful garden out there. But this garden is very special to me. It belongs to Kim's lovely aunt whom I know for so long. I went to her house so many times but mostly at night so I had never paid attention to her back yard.

I was so amazed by the varieties of plants and trees her husband grew with his own hands, lots of love and care. The healthy look of green leaves and colorful flowers all over.I love these orange flowers. I don't know its name but I was told that this plant brings wealth to your home. I have one at my house too...Ha ha..I'm gonna be rich soon.

Look at this wonderful lotus pool and succulents. I am a succulents lover so this is my favorite spot. She gave me a bag full of succulents to grow at home. Yay! Lucky me!!!

Other than beautiful flowers, they have many kinds of fruit trees such as white peach, persimmon, tangerine, guava, mango, lemon (or lime??) and kitchen plants like tomato, sweet pea, chili and herbs. How wonderful!!

Coconut & Almond Cookies

I'm very pleased to share with you my secret recipe of Coconut & Almond Cookies. Every time, we have family potluck party, I'm always requested to bring these yummy coconut cookies.

This is really easy to make. I just used Pillsbury Ready To Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (24- piece package). Cover each cookie dough up with sweetened coconut flake and almond slices. Then bake in the oven at 350 degree F for 15 minutes. I believe everyone loves them because they were gone so fast just like a tornado!!!


  1. Wonderful!!!!! The coconut cookies look delicious & yummy!!!

  2. Beautiful garden & yummy looking cookies,
    thanks for sharing!! :) P'N

  3. I love the idea of having the lotus garden in the pot. My mum loves succulents like you, i will have to post some photos of our garden sometime to show you :)
    Hope your tomato plants are still going well :)

  4. Hi Rose,

  5. What a GORGEOUS Garden! I LOVE it all but especially the Lotus Pool. What a great idea!

  6. I wish I was in a house and not an APT! I want a garden! I am actually moving to a house in Sept. I dunno if vegetable plants will survive the vegas heat.

  7. I love how you appreciate nature and I want a bite of those cookies (with a cup of tea).

  8. To All,

    I really L O V E reading your comments, you all made me feel soooo good!

    I would try to grow vegetable plants in a pot and don't put them in the direct sun light and give them plenty of water.

  9. Your narratives are very good. It makes pictures perfect. You can become a writer one day. I am very proud of you.

  10. Oh those cookies look great!

    I couldn't figure out how to post the award on the side but thanks for the info! I might try playing around with it a little later in the weekend and we'll see what I figure out :)

  11. I understand why you call this your "dream garden." You can definitely see the love and care in the beauty of each type of plant, despite the tons of plants that they have in their garden.
