POS Malaysia

Here's a shot of the main Seremban Post Office I snapped while waiting for R to pick up a package. In Malaysia the postal system is known simply as POS.

Lobster Claw Plants

It's been awhile since I've posted. This year has been a busy one already! I recently found some HUGE Lobster Claw plants (Heliconia family) that were blooming. I've never seen the plants so large, in fact, I've only seen small plants available once in Seremban. So I bought these three plants and planted them at the side of the house between our property and our neighbors. The Lobster Claw plants are quite popular in my neighborhood and around Seremban. I love them and have wanted a few for our yard. They have been doing well. There's not too much sun in the area as it is below a giant mango tree, but still these plants seem fine when watered once a day.

As I added the photo to Blogger, I remembered I had seen a number of Lobster Claw and Lobster Claw-like plants on my trip last year to Ubud in Bali (see the post here).

So I pulled up some photos I took in the gardens of the Rudana Fine Art Gallery. I guess I only took one of a Heliconia, where the claws go up instead of hang down like the ones I aquired. The garden was so pretty. . .
