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. ;-)

My Palm Tree - Ed Matlack

Was truly amazed by nature's special display of cloud cover over our clear blue skies this morning!

What a wonderful job that 'all hell broke loose' thunderstorm did late yesterday evening which brought down the layers of leaden molecules of hazy atmosphere that has bugged us for the past lethargic week.

Recharged and refreshed with O2, found this wonderful avenue to match the captured mood with a beautifully written poem by Ed Matlack @

As you can plainly see
Of this pretty palm tree
I did from Al & Leah it receive
As well from the island of Tybee...

So little do I ever a palm tree see
Only when I am watching the TV
I find them to be oh so quite pretty
Taken for granted are they
By people who live under them by the sea...

But this particular tree
Was given as a gift to me
Ownership is not mine, really
So for you to view it, I won't charge a fee...
