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. ;-)

The Fiji Fan Palm

Botanical Name : Pritchardia pacifica

Details per previous post titled The Fiji Fan Palm however, here @ The Secret Garden, am really fortunate to see a generously fruiting specimen.

This palm is also known to bear fragrant brown flowers, culminating in green fruits which later turn black when mature.

                                                                             laden with bounty

                                                                     foliage scissor snips

                                                 lower trunk carpeted with moss + tree ferns

Definitely, a unique one and a palm collector's dream!
