Bandung is in West Java, Indonesia. It is on a slightly elevated location, about 2,500 ft above sea level, and the cool temperature there produces luxuriant vegetation all year round!
Apart from the green plants, the Bandung garden design would often incorporate the stone art which is crafted in Indonesia. There are wall relief statues, stone statues, figure statues and animal statues which are displayed among the trees and borders.

For Macro Monday, here's a close up of the face of a stone figure statue:
|A guardian spirit?|
|A popular feature is to incorporate epiphytes of all sorts onto huge trees.|
|A close up of the attractive red succulents and air plants (which look like roots ).|
|An orangutan and child|
This is for Mellow Yellow Monday:
|Sprays of orchids like sparklers in the noon day sun.|
|See what I mean by luxuriant? Such well-fed foliage!|
|A variety of textures, patterns, shapes and shades of tropical greens and ferns.|
|This unusual flower is from a tall tree...unknown species (to me, that is).|
And for Mosaic Monday, two animal statues:
