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. ;-)

A Yellow-vented Bulbul

No, it.s not a new palm specimen... but a particular, very important 'mummy' bird has decided to install its cosy nest in one of the dense Japanese bamboo clusters at this address.

Of course, it brought a lot of excitement to the household as it's not often that birds would nest so low (approx. 4.5ft) in a shrub and so close to human activities, the cooler and less watchful side of the patio.

This tropical garden bird is sitting snug but vigilant that anything within its "disturbance radar" would cause it to flit hastily.

It's been here for the last 3 weeks+ so perhaps, we'd soon hear the chatter of little beaks...

                                                                      my perfect hideaway

What a lovely diversion for a Friday afternoon and shall keep posted.
