Gorgeous pix! Are they from a garden or just out & about?

I especially like seeing the Hibiscus schizopetalus (3rd pic). I think I'm going to try to find one of those to grow here!

Hi Rosemarie, thanks. Also thanks for telling me the name of the flower in the third pic, LOL. I have always loved them ever since i was a kid. I had them in my yard. They survived on their own.

The 1st and 3rd pix were taken in the Spice Garden, Penang, Malaysia. The rest were taken in hotels i stayed in in Bali & Lombok, Indonesia.

P/S: I had the files compressed to aroudn 60 kb each. But the images still take up the whole screen. Grrr...i wonder why? Probably because i saved them in "FINE" setting in my digicam?

Hi folks, my apologies if the huge display images had given you viewing trouble on your screen. The actual file sizes were really less than 60KB. I use dial-up myself so i know what it's like to upload/download huge files.

Luckily, Photobucket has an Edit-Resize feature which allows users to resize to either 75%, 50% or 25% of the orignal image size - all without having to re-upload! I did just that and i hope the images display better now.

Have a great day and happy posting!
