Back in 2016 I visited the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.
I am thinking about that visit tonight as they were the setting for parts of a show I have been watching. They were mainly used just as a beautiful background for several scenes and also because an orchid was a central part of the plot. Perhaps also to show that the scenes were taking place in Singapore as they are a popular tourist destination.
So, I will share what I wrote back then, with a few changes in content and readability.
Gardens by the BayBefore we visited the gardens we stopped at a nearby park. I really like this image that I captured of the Singapore Flyer and the skyline reflected in the Singapore River. The ripples in the water also caught my eye.
Here we can see the Gardens by the Bay in front of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. This is the futuristic looking building that I can see from my Hotel Room, but from the opposite side. My sister stayed at this hotel when she visited Singapore.
The key feature of the Gardens by the Bay are two large domes that enclose a garden and a forest.
The Flower Dome has multiple levels of flower displays. I took hundreds of pictures as you would expect and will share just a few in this post.
Sometimes it is the tiny things that catch my attention like the little yellow flowers shown above.
Today was the last day of Tulipmania Rediscovered at the Flower Dome so I had to get some pictures of the beautiful tulips.
The Cloud Forest dome has a really nice set of waterfalls. The dome encloses a rain forest that is also filled with flowers. Here are some of the beautiful little flowers that you see in a rain forest.
Can you tell what some of these flowers are made from?
I am not sure why they had this little section of flowers made from Legos, but perhaps it is because these flowers are difficult to maintain and have limited time when they are at their peak. In any case it was very interesting to see flowers made from Legos.
More flower pictures are now tucked away in my files and may be seen in the future. It depends on where my mind wanders 🙂
