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. ;-)

Showcasing Palms | Small-Medium

Guess there is no limit as to the types of containers (pot planters) one could choose to grow the palms in, as well as enhance the interior and surrounds.

Given we have several large manufacturers of clay products locally, as well as imports from China, there is indeed a very wide selection available.  Depending on factors such as palm size, ornamental values up to and including owner/designer's inclination, think I've just woken up to an idea!!  (sorry for the suspense, will post later if it eventuates?).

Here are some I've come across to date, both modern and traditional.  Certainly there are lots more terracotta, ceramic, plastic, metal and 'anything-goes' type of pot planters which I didn't plan on capturing just yet...

inside travel agency
along walkway to hotel restaurant
outside private home
inside shopping mall
 at stairwell of traders' association
at a restaurant
Somehow I feel every combination is like a little story. Can almost say it reflects its surrounds. So, which one are you?
