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. ;-)

What's this Palm?

This morning,  as I took a walk around the housing estate, I happen to chance upon a very fine, gentle,
palm-looking plant. See what we would miss out when travelling by car!

Is it a palm or a fern tree? I needed to positively identify this species on the net. Unfortunately, I have yet to find the answer but I'm curious and anxious to put the pictures out so perhaps, someone might know and help me! Many thanks in advance.

So right now, I have some photos to show for - this lovely palm with no name!

                                                   what's your name? trio in the foreground

a trunk like this

                        bi-pinnate fronds
                       of delicate light green leaflets

 I still cant believe how I'd missed this specimen previously,  probably walking, as usual, with eyes wide shut!

p.s.: plant has now been identified as a Tower Tree (Botanical Name: Schizolobium parahyba)
