Sometime ago in LTB, we went for a short walk in a little place to check on something. The area had a narrow private dirt road and life seems to be a lot more laid back and quiet that we almost felt we were somewhere in the countryside when the fact is, we just walked for about 3 minutes from the main road which is always busy with honking cars, trucks and stuff.

There were little gardens ranging from a few plots to quite a lot, like this green ice plantation below.



Going farther, we noticed that both of the road sides were lined with tall plants and trees that it's almost impossible to see what's beyond them unless one intentionally pulls them away.

This single bloom of the hibiscus plant got my attention I had to take a photo of it. It was a lot taller than me that I had to pull a ballet pose just to get a shot, lol!



Some of the residences were at least welcoming, they have their yard open like this one.



Others like this yard had fence all around. The gate had no lock though but I guess no one would dare enter. We did hear dog barks nearby.



Our walk was cut short that we turned around because we received a call that the person we intended to meet was elsewhere.

This next walk was at the grounds of Tayao Gardens along the highway where we went after the sunrise one morning sometime ago.



Unfortunately, the garden was still closed because it was too early. They had a good bargain offer there. The entry fees are really cheap and one would go home with a small pot of succulent too.


I love the note they had there too...

"This garden is a work in progress... (and so are we...)"

They're absolutely right. We are a work in progress whether we admit it or not.

Anyways, we had a wee time walking around the outsides of the garden. The rain of the previous night had the grounds wet so it was kinda cool, although a bit muddy. Not a problem though.


The sunrise glowed behind the view deck and the few trees. I love the fact that they recycled truck tires and used them as plant pots.



We then crossed the wee red bridge and enjoyed taking photos of some reflections on the water. I wonder what could have been the purpose of the pit. I doubt it's a fish pond. It's just too deep. Or perhaps they are making it as one of the place's attraction, who knows.



A little more time spent in front of the restaurant where we took shots of sunrise reflections, some plants and flowers too.



And that ends two of our short yet fun walks not so long ago. This coincidentally goes with the #WednesdayWalk initiative by @tattoodjay.

Thank you lots and have a fabulous Wednesday!

I'm glad that the plantation there is not severely affected by the typhoon today. Some farmers were already in pain and grief because their rice and vegetables were wiped by the flood.

Such morning walk is really good. Though I woke up early, but I didn't walk around since there's ton of pets to feed. What a life.

I hope it wasn't. These were a few weeks back. It's really saddening when farms and plants get flooded and crops destroyed. I hope everyone in affected areas are safe though.

And you're right, morning walks are refreshing. I thought feeding pets can be fun too :)

Have a safe day DM

Thank you so much @ifarmgirl 😊I know… but I know also why it takes so long. I have an autoimmune disease… so everything is different and takes longer. I need to rest more too when my body is acting all crazy.
But again my second morning that is much much better. Yay 🎉🎉
Hope your day is going well 😊☀️🌺 enjoy it further!

It looks like a nice place :) ... The fence in the neighborhood could be to keep their dogs in.

That might be true because it's illegal to keep one's dogs out the streets :) Thank you lots for your support. I appreciate it greatly :)
