I am amazed at how fast this landscape at the Singapore Botanic Gardens established itself. They look stunningly beautiful to me and I always love to walk pass this area, especially when it is not blazing hot.

The Amherstia nobilis (common name: Pride of Burma) from the Fabaceae Family in the top photo looked so pretty and I cannot wait for it to flower.

In the 2nd photo, the prickly brown leaved aroid Cyrtosperma johnstonii from the Araceae Family was the highlight. There are also some in HortPark.

The flowering Pitcairnia flammea from the Bromeliaceae Family in the 3rd photo is right in the middle of it all.
