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 Slender Lady Palm #2

Botanical Name : Rhapis excelsa

The past month had been unseasonally hot and unbearably dry. Many plants including some palms were already showing signs of sun burn with fronds drying out ; turning brown and looking dehydrated. So this morning's thunderous shower had been a pleasant respite for man and nature. A few drops of rain does bring a crisp freshness into the otherwise, dull looking plants.

Noticed a lively difference to this batch of 'freshly rained on' Lady Palms and think they look so perfect with the grand old Moorish architecture background.

fresh & green
perky after the rains
pretty "moorish"
