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. ;-)

Container - The Slender Lady Palm

Botanical Name : Raphis humilis

I can't help but post this picture here ahead of others.
Reason - I've come across quite a few types of container palms (and plants).  Most being in cement planter box (for public services), terracota, ceramic, plastic (for commercial enterprises and private homes) and some, whatever we have as long as they hold (especially outskirts of town and in villages).

This is one of them but for a commercial premise, right smack in the busy city centre?  It's an arty take on oil drums.  Great visual and impact and most of all, good green recycling.  Love it, hope the raphis loves it too!
