As always we are working on our cosy garden and we just finished a new nature stone path through the garden with little paths going to each room. We also planted new, lush grass, put decorative white pebble along the building and removed some old flowerbeds to increase the seaview experience. And our plants seem to love it: 4 Orchids of 3 different species are flowering right now in our garden. Plus our Choclate Habanero plants are starting to fruit extensively and we harvested our first 2 pumpkins. So also above water, there is a lot to see these days.
After posting many Posts about the marine life of Lembeh Strait in our Lembeh Blog we now have some updates from our garden (in which we right now – due to gardening projects – spend more time, than in the water). We are proud to announce that some of the Orchids, that we planted on the trees in our garden are flowering. The one on the picture is just in front of room number 5 and there are more coming in front of room number 7. Another Orchid on the path to the bungalows just finished flowering. And we also started to harvest various types of chilies: green and red Jalapenos, Twilights, Maldivian Chili and Rica Panjang. Besides that we now have a big stock of Basil, Rosemary, Dill and Mint. We are very happy to see that they plants are feeling well in our garden.
Our NAD-Lembeh BLOG is now running for about 4 months and reaches 100 posts with this post. We are very happy, that all you guys keep following our BLOG Posts – thank you very much. It is a fanstastic winter season here in Lembeh with many cool critters and good diving in the whole Strait. We are having great dives these days from California Dreaming all in the north to Madidir all in the south (this is also where i took this shot of this cute litle seahorse posing in the sand) – and we also found some new dive spots.
But we are also having a very productive period in our resort with a lot of improvement projects. We are changing a lot of furniture, making new garden paths, working on gardening, re-finishing bungalows, changing over to energy saving fridges and doing maintanance on one of our boats.
Lembeh is famous for Muckdives and Critters … but also on Land there is a lot to see in our Resort – for exemple in the garden. We have been very busy planting various Chilies, herbs, flowers and fruits and we can now proudly announce that finally the first one of our pineapple plants is fruiting! We are already really excited and looking forward to tasty homegrown Pina Coladas after a long day of Muck Diving.
