Pokok Kemuning


I love this tree! It has a very strong sweet fragrance from the white flowers that blooms all year round. My Mom planted quite a few of them around the house. So every morning, we will get the smell them all around the garden, especially if there is a strong wind around. The wind will spread the fragrance everywhere and sometimes we could even smell it when we are in the house. 

My late grandmother had planted this tree long time ago at her own house. The tree I remembered  there was so tall.....as tall as our house now. It can grow up to be so big. But when she passed away, there was no one to take care of her garden and the people who rented her house did not maintain her garden well.....years later all her plants were dead. I was so sad when I went to her house years ago and saw her garden wiped out, looking like a football field.......gone, all gone! I felt like someone ripped my heart out! That garden used to be my playground when I was a little kid. It was my heaven. It was heaven for me and my sister and also for all the little kids there in the neighbourhood. We had great memories there. Sigh.....

When I look at that tree......it reminds me of my late grandmother....miss her so much. She loved gardening so much.....and so does my Mom too. Now my Mom has her own large garden at her house .....except that her garden is not as big as my late grandma's.......and I hope this garden will keep making people happy......I do not want it to be wiped out like the one at my grandma's house. I'll make sure it stays beautiful.......God willing.
