312/366: parasitic plant perhaps?

On our trip to Thailand recently (was it really only last week??!! Shameless self-promotion: click here), I noticed around the grounds of Thara Patong Beach Resort some plants growing on other plants.

Some of these looked deliberately added. Do you remember when elk horn ferns were all the rage under the pergola? It’s amazing how even in gardens there are fashions and trends, just as in clothing, cars and decor.

Others had the look of a parasitic plant, feeding on its host. I’m not sure that this is the case, just my humble impression. And I’ve always said that everyone is entitled to my opinion – I even have a cap that states that fact quite clearly, so it must be true.

305/366: cute kittens

Missing my cats while on holiday in Thailand, at least where we are staying at Thara Patong Beach Resort and Spa, there are plenty of cats roaming around.

It is obviously kitten season, and some are quite adorable (though none as gorgeous as Shadow and Zorro). Admittedly, I am extremely biased in their favour!

303/366: fabulous foreign foliage

Princessprattles is currently on holiday in Phuket, Thailand. Having just done a post on travelswithprincessandquiquinou about fabulous foreign foliage, I thought I would share this lushness on my (primarily) garden blog.

All taken on the grounds of Thara Patong Beach Resort, I was fascinated by the foliage that abounds here. Tropical climates have a style all of their own, extremely appreciated by people who live in temperate climes, such as Melbourne, Australia.
