Rose Center In Cameron Highlands

I am never tired of looking at roses and smelling fragrant roses too. So when we visited CH again we made it a point to visit this Rose Center. This time round this garden center has a lovely view at the top of the hill.The walking journey up the hill
made the experience a visual treat. Here are some mandatory pics of the roses growing there ... ever so large and blooming ... seldom seen in this size in Singapore.

So here below our walking journey began ......

Rest point to admire the view and to catch our breaths ....

Finally we reached the top .... behind us the Equatorial Cameron Highlands where we stayed.

Cactus Valley in Cameron Highlands

Cactus Valley is situated up on a hill and from afar we could see this huge structure displayed prominently in it's majesty :-) The garden centre doesn't only grow cactus and succulents but many other plants to. Let's show case the beauty of cactus and succulents here first. I believe that these cactus and succulents have been growing here for many generations and they are all huge, gigantic and majestic. Pots and pots of them and thorns and thorns of them too ... LOL I can only imagine my tiny, puny cactus and succulents that I bought could one day grow into some of them like those here :-)

Hibiscus Progress Pt.2

Finally one of the two flower buds opened. It's a white hibiscus with the blood red centre and the petals are papery thin. The other bud was lost during a rainy afternoon.

Mexican Sunflowers Encore ....

I got the seeds from the first batch that I planted in pots. Now I grow the second batch into the ground. After four months they have flowered for me at a shorter height. Enjoy the pics ....
