For the umpteenth time and more to come, I am a witness to the blessed peace and beauty of the Singapore Botanic Gardens that most working people do not get to enjoy and if they do find themselves in these gardens, they probably do not think that such a garden is necessary to the well-being of the country. For me, I pray for the well-being of our parks and gardens because they reflect our well-being too.

A red Torch Ginger that is less common than the pink ones in the garden.
My favourite waterfall.

Why does Blogger do this to all my vertical-format photos???
A tall and sturdy palm that has taken years to grow to such a great height.
