In the years of 1960's, 70's & 80's, population in the city continuously moved in to housing estates at suburban. Living in the terrace houses is different from shophouses in town. Spacious living space, car porch & a little front yard. Most women were housewives at that time & they spent their time managing housework & taking care children. However, the front yard was simply a precious piece of land that was never available in shophouse & it was normally planted with some vegetables in middle income families. Although those days is over, families nowadays are fully utilizing front yard as car porch, but my mom still has her little farm in the yard planted with several kinds of vegetable. Leek is one of those in the farm & its flowers simply eye-catching in the evening.
