This is My World

THese are the gardens of the school where I teach. The trees were planted by the children .

Colourful bougainvilleas cascde dowm the rocks in summer.
Colourful crotons border the playground.


Doesn't the bougainvillea make a lovely contrast to the rock? Many thanks to My World team.

  2. The children are very lucky to be able to be involved like that. Here in Sydney today, it is a lovely pre-spring day with the sun shining very warmly. I have just bought two punnets of yellow pansies which I will plant into my courtyard at lunch time. Then I will have a very beautiful garden too.

  3. A lot of effort has gone into making that school so inviting. I am sure some great gardeners will come out of that school! Those surroundings must make going to work very pleasant.

  4. It's just beautiful there! I wish the schools near us would do more than plant a few shrubs around. I love the children planted the trees and how colorful the plants are.

    Julie, the children plnted those trees 9 years ago. I am sure your garden will be beautiful.
    Africanaussie, welcome to my blog and thanks for your comment. Yes, the gardens make the atmosphere very pleasant.
    Catherine, children in all schools her plant trees during the monsoons.
    Luna Miranda, I think crotons need very little care in the tropics.That may be the reason for them being the favourites of school gardeners.
    Helen, not only students. We teachers also look forward to going to school.

  9. Very colourful. Good to see trees planted by the children. They will have happy memories of the school and will want to show their children the tree that TEY planted.

  11. Wow! What a beautiful garden! And to be at a school. This looks more like a resort than one of our public schools...I don't know...maybe an expensive private school would have such landscaping over here. The bougainvilleas cascading over the rock is a breathtaking sight!
