Louise McDaidSingapore Gardens by the Bay

On a recent one-day stopover in Singapore I hot-footed it along to the Gardens by the Bay – ‘where wonder blooms’ as the brochure says.

Despite an early morning start I soon realised one day wasn’t going to do justice to such an extensive and fascinating place. One could spend a day exploring the gardens in the two cooled giant conservatories alone (which by the way is an extremely pleasant way to escape the outdoor humidity).

Read GardenDrum blogger Linda Green’s perceptive write up and thoughts from last year on the Singaporean botanical wonderland.

Below I’ve posted a gallery of shots showing what I found beautiful, exciting, interesting, fun, breathtaking, informative, and valuable in so many ways. My wonder certainly bloomed!

    • There was so much to like about it that I tried to capture – but it never conveys what it’s like to be there in person!
