My Friends' Garden At Bukit Merah Lake Town Resort.

Our friends have a big garden and some of the plants in my garden were from this garden. This garden is an exchange place for plants. We contribute some of our plants to this garden and we also take away plants from their garden back to our own garden and others did the same thing too. This garden has been blessed and in turn has been a great blessing to other gardens as well.
Many visitors from far and near have visited this home.
 As usual, I never fail to take a walk around their garden. These pretty periwinkles greeted me.
 Ahhh....these orchids are flowering and my poor orchids at home are struggling to stay alive!
 I took this photo from my bedroom window. Very nice shady branches. The leaves look like our local tapioca leaves. I wonder if these leaves are edible. 
 Bleeding Heart flowers or Nyonya Makan Sireh.
Common names: Amazon Blue, Brazilian Snapdragon.
 Scientific name: Otacanthus caeruleus
 Pretty white flowers that look like Jasmine flowers.
 Can someone help to identify this plant?
This unknown plant has glossy leaves.

For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects

of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:

TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.

So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship -

and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.

The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of 

heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.

(Acts 17:23-24, New International Version-NIV)
