This past weekend Taylor and I took a tour at Fort Canning Park. Every other month the park offers a Spice Trail tour which they guide you through their spice garden. We saw a lot of interesting plants and learned some new things!
This might be Taylor’s favorite plant! He loves vanilla! He wishes we could grow this on our porch! We both were shocked to know that the vanilla pod actually grow on vines and that it is part of the orchid famil. We learned something new! There have never been any flowers on this plant to produce pods do to not having the birds here to pollinate the plants.
On our tour we also were introduced to other spices and plants such as basil, turmeric, ginger and other Asian plants. It was interesting to see how everything grew and how much all of the plants like the Singapore climate!
