As I Wander...

Living in tropical Malaysia, we tend to take the hot humid weather, thundery rainstorms and the spectrum of wild evergreen plants as a given.

Recently, I noticed more exotic plants making its way into landscaped home gardens, recreational parks, frontages of shopping malls and
commercial buildings.

Along kerb sides of residential streets and busy motorways, palms, trees and flowering plants make pleasant and interesting fringes.

This is a record of the various species "as I see it" for I am in awe of palms. Hence, my premise for this blog is that the global garden,
i.e. every physical garden (tended or untended), becomes a part of my, simply said, cyber palm garden. ;-)

Chelsea Flower Show | 25-29 May 2010

Malaysia wins Gold!

amazing... and I get to record this famous gardening event in my post. 

Tourism Malaysia, a first time participant at the world's most prestigious flower show has captured the
judges' hearts with its exhibit titled 'Malaysia Garden'.

Must say it's an innovative way to promote the country and kudos also to the designers for their outstanding concept and execution.

The spectacular event, which highlights emerging garden trends and new plants, draws over 150,000 gardening enthusiasts from around the world annually.

Links to local news report and 'must see' 360deg view of Malaysia Garden below :-

centre of attraction, the beautiful Tree Fern (Cyathea contaminans) commonly found on higher altitudes of our highland forests where it's much cooler. could not figure out any palms except for one, the Slender Lady palm (zoom in behind the ficus? tree). others probably smaller, shorter or simply out of view. sigh...
