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 Scenic KLCC Park #2

Discovering this beautifully designed park has been absolute eye opener for me and to think it had been around all these ages makes it more regrettable that I'd not ventured there earlier... such artful encapsulation of design and nature - just stupendous!

Besides the magnificent green hues, at selected rest areas one can find complementary colours from the flowering trees and leaves.  Here's some from nature's palette...

top left - plumeria; top right - albizia guachapele (chime tree);
bottom left - plumeria; bottom right - ixora

ficus elastica
ochroma pyramidale (balsawood)

left - saraca thaipingensis ;
 right - erythrina fusca (coral bean)

left - ixora; right - plumeria
Locally, the various visually striking plumerias are known as 'frangipanis' which exude the most unforgettable  fragrance only at night to lure the moths for pollination...

The official opening hours at the KLCC Park are 7am - 10pm daily (last admission 1hr 30mins before close).
