Luckily, the Rondeletia odorata shrub is still there today. The unusual but free flowering orange flowers of this shrub make this an interesting plant to have in a garden.

The cluster of Tetracera indica is also growing so well that it conceals the raised service manhole on the slope very well. The flowers are also a delight to look at.

Across the area at the Hands-on-House, a squirrel was scurrying down the trunk of the Washingtonia robusta palm and it froze in its steps when it saw me. What an adorable creature it is.

The grey lava stone pots are put to good use in different parts of the park to showcase plants in the different theme gardens. A new plant label is also in use now and provides more relevant information on plants to visitors.
