Flora That Feels Like the Philippines

As part of our 5th anniversary road trip/celebration, San Antonio Botanical Garden made it into our itinerary for 2 reasons:
1) for the photo opportunity (although I "only" got my reliable point-and-shoot camera and no charger!)
2) for admission being free (due to reciprocal admissions program from LBJ Wildflower Center)

Am glad we went... the place has plenty of theme gardens from Japanese, Herbs, Palms, Ferns, etc. It was almost like the Philippines (with San Francisco, Banana, Papaya, Coconut and Palm galore and even camote!) except maybe for the cactus. Enough talking and I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

Now, if I can only find the secret of how to raise these plants in the hill country...
