Palm Tree

This photo was taken during my walks in botanic garden. The place was quite shady and when I looked up I saw this huge beautiful palm tree shading us. It looked like a huge umbrella.

Although we are 2 degrees north of the equator, Singapore is a garden city with many huge trees shading us.

You might like to know that we will have another huge garden in the city beside botanic garden. It will be known as Gardens by the Bay. It is still under construction (will be completed around 2010) and when completed will be very beautiful.

Gardens by the Bay will consists of three different gardens. It will grows flowers that are not able to grow in Singapore with the help of technology. In fact some of the flowers are already booming in nursery. For more photos of our future garden:Click here

That palm tree is shady, alright. And it really reminds of an umbrella.
Guess it´s a nice place to rest and walk...

I'm looking forward to see your photos in Gardens by the Bay!
Your post about Samsui Women is gripping and now, I know I'm an ox, quite surprising because if I agree with "loyalty towards friends", I don't think I'm very patient!
Have a nice day, dear Alice.
