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 Palm Surround Playground

If there ever be an outdoors knowledge playground for children to learn about tropical palms, this might be the perfect location for it, in residential Setia Eco Park, Shah Alam.

Nestled in the cool shade and surrounded by several species of mid sized mature palms, this cheerful playland is an open invitation for the young, restless and energetic juniors. Ah! what joy to be that young again ;), if only I knew then to appreciate the trees around me.

Behind the Queens are several Golden coconut palms, being tidied by park gardeners at the time this picture was taken.

Playtime is usually reserved for the evenings when the setting sun casts its low shadows and the late heat less intense. That's when this playground comes alive with carefree laughter and merriment of the children.
