Plants are important because they produce oxygen. They are important because some animals eat them. Some plants are used in salads.
Some plants, like flowers, smell good. Bees suck up the nectar from flowers to make honey. Flowers are also used as decorations in houses.
Trees are also used to make houses, swings, paper, boxes, bags, etc.. Trees also give us air to breathe. Children love to make tree houses in trees. You also use trees in your fireplace. Trees are fun to climb.
Grass is fun to roll around in, especially where there is a hill. Tall grass is very fun to play and hide in. It is also fun to help the grass grow. It is fun to turn on the sprinkler and run through it while it waters the grass.
Leaves are on trees. At times the leaves fall from the trees, especially in Autumn they fall. Then it's fun to rake them into a pile to jump into.
A bush is a small tree. A bush is fun to hide in. A bush can be a wind breaker. A bush also gives us the air we breathe.
No matter what kind of plant it is...a tree, a flower, a blade of grass, a leaf, or just a bush...
They need our help to live and grow.

The view was awesome and it had saved in our mind already. We had an unforgettable memory. Other than that, the garden staff sometimes ride bikes or other vehicles quite recklessly, and kids were not allowed to ride bikes here. I saw some did. I wondered is there any setting rules on the sign board ? Throughout the tour, the advantages of the Penang Botanic Gardens are such as follows.
