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 Mayotte Bismarck Palm #2

Botanical Name : Bismarckia nobilis (green form)

It's probably quite a coincidence catching the green Bismarckia at Lorong Maarof, prior post, with bunches of inflorescence but beyond my reach to record as they were way too high up (15ft +).

A thought came to mind to re-visit the earlier lot at Mutiara Damansara to check if these were flowering and fruiting too, assuming tis' the season...

As I strolled into the park and this time around, more confident about this Bismarckia green form being indeed the Mayotte Island Bismarckia and guess what???

Several of the palms were heavily laden with infructescence and that was quite a remarkable sight.  While the fruits look the same as the fruits of the silver Bismarckia, at a glance, one might even say like olives!

As I walked away from the park, I wondered what a lamentable loss it would have been had that 'Lorong Maarof moment' didn't strike me it did then...
