green thumbs

My dad’s green thumbs and there’s no lack of flowers or fruit in the yard.

The mango tree in the front yard is doing alright, as is the neighbor’s lychee tree.

A busy body family we are and the front yard becomes quite the operation, a constant rotation of drying pandan leaves, galanga root, thai red chilis and steamed bananas that I would bring back home with me.

My 100+ year old grandmother of course not left out of the day’s activities, here she is chopping pandan leaves to dry, preparing plants to pickle and shaking wilted flowers and leaves off a tree with a stick.
