Christina who hosts GBFD every month is suffering from dry August heat, so here is some moist lush foliage from the Mekong River where it is the rainy season. There are lots of what seem to be nurseries on stilts along the river.
Coloured foliage plants like coleus, crotons, something that looks like a lime green poinsettia and other foliage plants are used in public gardens.
It’s hard to tell but I think these (below) are bougainvillea. These are popular here grown on poles and trained into tree shapes and as bonsai in big pots.
Everything grows madly, on land and in the water. Water Morning Glory is harvested from the water and is a delicious cooked green. Along with Water Hyacinth it is clogging the path for our rowboat below.
Everything including the air is moist so growth is lush. There is definitely a feeling that if you stand still you could be grown over.
There are silver leafed palms here. Very pretty, I haven’t seen these before.
