I love the contrast captured in the first two photos. The leaf shapes,  sizes, colouration, venation patterns etc from the Sanchezia, Ligustrum and Excoecaria provide a very beautiful picture. What can I say other than I really dig it? The Sunbird was perched on the flowers of the Acanthaceae shrub and was startled by me before it flew off.

The Megaskepasma erythrochlamys is also growing so well and it adds a splash of lime green leaves and red bracts to the darker green landscape background. The uncommon Heliconia episcopalis and fan-shaped Cordyline fruticosa cultivar provide an interesting allure to the Floral Walk.
