flower in Methodist school Sibu

For nostalgia, I went back to Methodist School in Sibu, this July. My second time back since I left in 1973. I went with my girl friend J Chua who returned to teach there. I popped in to see my Cousin C Chan/Tan. She was hiding in the air conditioned  senior teachers' office.  I don't remember such an office existed when I was a student. I wasn't there very long when another friend rang to take me to see more places of Sibu.

Along the entrance, I see these Turnera Subulata flowers.  Can you see the bees? I am teaching my students a song I learn in this song, Spring time has come. I tell the students to imagine: Bees are Buzzing. buzz buzz. I won't like the bees to sting a student.

In Malaysia, Turnera subulata grows wild like a weed in open fields and sunny areas.
This native of Tropical America is very much at home in our equatorial climate.
The flowers open at about 8 O'clock in the morning and close before noon.
