John&Jacq~s Garden

Our tropical garden from October to December 2015

Our tropical garden paradise is forever alive with various flora and fauna to enchant us!

We’re truly blessed as we stand transfixed in awe at God’s marvellous creations, mesmerised by all the sheer beauty that we see everyday. Thank you, Heavenly Father!

Our small garden comprises of three sections… 1) the front yard, including the car porch; 2) the courtyard; 3) the backyard. We hope you’ll enjoy the photos presented below for your viewing pleasure.
