I have always loved tropical gardens and the gardens of the Park Royal Hotel where we stayed were amazing.
Our first view - welcome -
I could easily have just laid by the pool and done very little. Nice? Wouldn't you just love to have just a little bit of this garden at home?

In the gardens of the Park Royal and around Penang there were flowers of just about every colour you can think of -
You would expect frangipanis - nothing says tropical more than they - but check out these red ones!
and more red and orange and pink
I've seen these before in Singapore - isn't it amazing how a flower can grow like this -
This hummingbird was really enjoying lunching on this flower -
yellow - I would love the hibiscus in the top LH corner to be in my garden -
and look at this delicate beauty -
purple - even the leaves get a look in on this one
white and spidery -
water lilies - in ponds and in pots -
and the palm trees were not outdone by the flowers - I really loved this one with the huge fan leaves -I might have to see if I can buy one for the tropical "room" of my garden -
Can you see the creepers growing up the palm trunks? And this palm (center top) with the brilliant red stalks, but evidently I can't grow them in Australia - don't worry I've checked.
These bright orange leaves certainly brighten up a green garden. And don't you just love these little hanging hearts? -
I certainly didn't expect to see one of the Australian bottlebrush family! Not a tropical plant but growing very well in the tropical pool garden.
There was an avenue of huge shady spreading trees along a road where we waited for a bus one afternoon
At days end the sky was adding its own splash of colour
Do you have a favorite tropical destination?
I'll be back next time with my travel tips from Penang - but until then if you want to find out about the Park Royal Hotel located along Batu Ferringhi beach, please click here - Park Royal Penang - and no I wasn't paid to promote them.
Thanks for stopping by. I value your comments and look forward to hearing from you. Have a wonderful week.
