I drive at Jalan Sungai Buluh every day and if you had ever used that road, you will notice there are many nurseries by the road. Being a landscaper might be the reason why I really enjoyed the scenery at the roadside. It feels like as if you're driving passed flowering gardens everyday.
While most of the nurseries offer just-the-same-flowers-to-look-at, there is one nursery that have two flowering trees that had really captured my attention. For me they are rare because I never proposed any flowering trees looking like that in my landscape design.
So, during one fine Saturday, while I was on my way back from breakfast session with my girlfriends and knowing that Kuch Kuch Hota Hai will be aired in another two hours while the nursery is just a 5-minute-drive to my house, I took the chance to stop at the nursery and started investigating that mysterious flowering tree!
|Thank God there were still flowers on it. I used to see more of those flower on the tree, trust me!|
|From down here, the flowers look like Bauhinia purpurea. But it cannot be a Bauhinia because the leaves are different!|
|Hey! I was lucky to find a fallen flower on the ground. So I quickly picked it up. |
The flower is bigger that a Bauhinia, the petals are thicker, making it last longer on the branch. No wonder...
And just like a Bauhinia, this one is fragrant-less.
Well, a visit to a nursery is a waste of time if I don't spend time walking around the whole nursery and feasting my eyes on more flowers! Here are some beautiful sight I can share with you for this moment.
|Costus woodsonii - Red button ginger|
|Plumeria spp. - Frangipani|
|Rosa spp. - Rose|
|Wrightia antidysenterica - Snowflake|
Till then, keep on coming and thanks! :D
