The Durian Farm

These were taken at my grandparents place. We climbed the mountain last Sunday, and it was really great to be back there again after a couple of decades. The last time I was there, the place was not really a forest. It was clear and had only weeds on the grounds. However, time has been changed. My uncles plant durian trees, bananas, cacao and all other fruit-bearing trees. The road before was rough and rocky, as in, there were big rocks on the side of the road and muddy if it is rainy. Fortunately, when we climbed last Sunday, some parts of the roads are cemented.

 My aunts have these anthurium plants in their yards. That was my first time to see plenty of anthurium plants. It has a variety of colors like red, pink, and orange.

 I tried to climb the durian tree, and I did it because the branches are like stairs and not far from each other, so even kids could climb the tree.
