The 1st photo shows the flowers of the Euodia from the Rutaceae Family. Perhaps this can help to distinguish it from the Polyscias plant.
I have not really posted about the Crotalaria retusa (common name: Rattleweed) from the Fabaceae (Leguminosae) Family before, so here are its photos. Unfortunately, I do not have the photos of the dried capsules that can really rattle, much like a rattle snake. There was also a dragonfly perching on the floral bud of the Crotalaria. A link on the plant is attached below:
I love what the new team did in their siting of the granite bench at the Golden Garden. We had 2 of these benches and I wanted to use them at the Irrigation Pond area. This location was meant to be constructed as an area for photo-taking but my colleagues did it differently. With this bench, the feeling is different although I didn't like the paving material. The yellow bracts Musa siamensis (common name: Thai Gold Banana), that I planted, behind the bench was doing well as evident by the mass of healthy green leaves. Some links are listed below for reference:
My colleagues also planted out the Tagetes lucida (common name: Mexican Marigold, Mexican Mint Marigold) from the Asteraceae (Compositae) Family on one side of the bench. A link is attached below:
