Panagbenga: Landscape design contest

Our finding the landscape contest last Saturday afternoon was an accident. My wife, Jo-Lo, and I went to Burnham Park to leisurely spend the afternoon. Tina's older brother Joey was there was well; they were selling ice cream near the skating rink and it was good business.

Jo-Lo was running around and we were trying to keep up, when we noticed that there were people strolling about the rink. With a minimal 10 peso fee, we got in and found really nice landscape designs!

There were also stands selling a wide assortment of plants, from orchids to cacti, to variegated, decorative foliage, and colorful flowers. It was wonderful. We lingered there for quite some time before heading out to the lake and Jo-Lo continued running after the other kids and getting their toys.


  1. Ganda-ganda naman ng mga photos. I have not experienced the flower festival yet. Ang galing naman.
    I like the bamboo and the bonsai.

    Ice cream in Baguio?

    Ang gaganda nga ng view, iba talaga yung maraming halaman sa paligid mo.

    I like the landscape designs!

    Nang-aagaw pala ng laruan ha. Kanino kaya nagmana? :)

  4. picture number five reminds me of my "bahay kubo" in the Philippines where I had this small garden where I usually do my "retreat" when stress leaves me sleepless (not in seattle). I talked to the plants. They were my shrinks. hehehe Iba naluluoy dahil sa sobrang problemang naririnig nila.

    Dito, when winter comes, no garden, no green surroundings, no one to talk to except those pay-per-hour shrinks who are as troubled as the patients.

    No I don't talk to the shrink here, I talk to my mouse, remember. Mura pa.

  5. did you get a digicam? parang photos are really nice na. and yan. visited your blog na ulit. finally. I put up my review of the 300 na pala.

  6. Fantastic photos! I'm glad you and your family had a wonderful time. I love the landscape designs. Thanks for sharing.

  7. ang ganda! when i have my own house, i'd want one of those set ups in my garden! the bonsai looks dry tho.. parang hindi naalagaan.. but anyway! great pictures!

    miss ko na si jo-lo bebe!
