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 Blue Latan Palm #2

Botanical Name : Latania loddigesii

Flowering and fruiting events are, to me, such rare and special opportunities especially when one is not consciously looking. Sometimes when I deliberately set out to do so, they were about 10's of metres high, way beyond my cat's eye scan.

Being at the right place at the right time is a major luck factor for a wandering blogger and to find several of the same species displaying the various stages of the inflorescence development, yay! that's serendipity.

Here's my wonderful "national geographic" moments, a sequence I have not witnessed prior.
