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 Dwarf Betel Nut Palm #2

Botanical Name : Areca catechu (dwarf)

The recent long pause was a kind of "writer's block" for which I have yet to get a proper breakthrough. Fortunately, this being a leisure blog, where I can get away lightly. However, the "blogage" still exists for now, basically over my own confusion about the peculiarity of Royals, Kings, Queens and Princesses (palms, that is!).

So, thought I'd leave those awhile longer and delight myself with a batch, 13 altogether (a superstitious number?), of young Areca catechu (dwarf) recently sighted at Rivercity, Jalan Ipoh, KL.
