Siam: Margaret and Kenneth on Gardening and Palm Trees


Margaret finally got a good garden book, a great event. She still has it, A Garden Book for Malaya by Kathleen Gough. Margaret now had 120 house plants. There were ferns, amaryllis, lilys, honolulu creepers, bougainvillea, and other small plants. As for the trees, there were cinnamons, guavas, breadfruits, jackfruits, rambutans, durians, etc. Margaret believes most of these trees were planted by Dr. Dunlap.
