I hate being put in a box labeled 'tropical house.' -Kygo-
On her arrival from England 2 years ago, Judy Denham found the tropics disappointingly green. She had expected vivid and brilliant colors of flowers thru the years. What she had to contend with were bougainvilleas, hibiscus, frangipanis and wild lilies which did not bloom freely as did the wild flowers in her home country. She found tropical flowers not as colorful as those she‘d known and despite exploring, she found fewer varieties of wild flowers in Singapore.
Coming from the country side, she misses the English lavenders, blue and red posies and the abundant roses which grow as bushes. Flowers there grow by ponds, by road waysides, and in large fields. But the important consolation she finds in the tropics is the warm climate and “no cold winter!“
Her home, a terraced house at Braddel Heights, reflects her love for flowers. There are not just one or two or even three pots or vases of them but hundreds of them in almost every corner of the home. Luckily for her, her passion has changed from the real flowers which would have expense her quite a fortune to maintain. She much prefers the silk ones which she started buying just for her home. But friends began to buy vases and pots full from her, finally, she decided to go into the floral business. This started off as a hobby which expanded into the present retail business called Milflores.
What made her lastly turn to artificial flowers to brighten up her home was her umpteen attempts at growing real ones. Even the local ferns don’t thrive well under her care. She confesses ruefully to not possessing green fingers.
The only real plants are now found outdoors in the garden and poolside area. She does not bother will them much but found to her admitted relief that they thrive relatively well by themselves in the open. The only snag and the biggest headache with real plants for the couple is keeping these alive whenever they take a long break or holiday.
