WALKING EXERCISE, TREES AND SUNRISE.

We have just resumed our morning walk after a long rest for more than a month. It started when hubby was down with influenza and after that I too caught the flu bug. This time my cough dragged on for more than 2 weeks. I allowed my body to fight its own battle. The only medication I took was some cough mixture.
Two days ago we went back to the recreation park for our walking exercise. It was a lovely morning and we got to see the lovely sunrise.

As I walk, I enjoyed looking at the trees and plants around me.

There is this tree bending down towards the pond. I name it drinking tree because it looks like it is drinking from the lake.

That morning, some one else also express interest in the drinking tree.


What should I call this tree? Curved or Bent tree?

Halfway through our morning walk, the track was blocked by a fallen branch. The branch must have broke off from the tree during the previous night's heavy rain and very strong wind.
We have to walk on the grass to continue our walk on the track.
The fallen branch had knocked off the lamp from the lamp post and the lamp post was in a dangerous slanted position.


Palm trees beside the lake.

Found this round wild mushroom beside the walking track one morning during the wet season. It was about the size of a tennis ball and it looked like a brain.
Some one planted this South African grass or African leaves in the park. It is said that eating the leaves helps to lower cholesterol but prolong and careless consumption may lead to poisoning and damage of internal organs.
There is also a Noni plant planted in the centre of a small roundabout in the park. This is a small unripe noni fruit.
Spider Lily Plants with flowers.

A leaning tree facing the low cost flats.

Trees planted in a straight, neat row beside the drain.

Linked to Skywatch Friday.

Hallelujah! O servants of Jehovah, praise His name.

Blessed is His name forever and forever.

Praise Him from sunrise to sunset!

For He is high above the nations;

His glory is far greater than the heavens.

(Psalm 113:1-4, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. How a very unusual tree, the drinking tree. The Spider Lily Plants with flowers scares me because I hate spiders. Yuck!
    Maybe I should get back to walking also. I gained some weight and I'm trying to lose again. Walking would be good.
    Have a brilliant Friday Nancy. See ya.

    1. The fallen branch was cleared but the main tree looks like it wouldn't be able to stand for long too.

  6. It looks like a lovely place for an early morning walk. Sorry that you both had a bad flu but I'm glad you're feeling better. That bent tree is interesting. Maybe a lot of people use it as a place to rest.

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,

  9. Is the buah noni related to soursop? I have not eaten a buah noni at all. Where is this park? So green and with nice matured trees.

    1. Hi Mun, the buah noni is different from soursop. I think noni is good for juice. I don't like the taste of noni as a fruit but I like to eat soursop and drink its juice.

  20. I love this post...loved seeing where you walk. Also, always interested in the plants...I had never heard of a noni, nor spider lilies. I love the Drinking Tree, also the curved one...been trying to think of a different name for it and coming up blank.

    1. Thank you, Rose. I too have been thinking of putting a different name but couldn't find a suitable one so ended up "the drinking tree". Lol!
