Gardens by the Bay – 1

Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay is a fabulous botanical garden. I will let the pictures speak for themselves! There are 2 air-conditioned domes – a Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. If you’re visiting, do set aside at least 2 hours for each of the domes.

This first post will focus on the flowers of the Flower Dome which is currently running a special cherry blossom display alongside a Japan Fair. I really enjoyed walking amidst the blooms and capturing the flowers on camera.

My next post will feature the succulents in the Flower Dome. Wait for it!

All the flowers there are real!

Blooming Sakura
I believe the blooms are at their best now. Someone accidentally shook a trunk and petals rained down.
