Blossoms Beats & Adventures in Gardens of Wonder

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe were at Gardens by the Bay last week primarily to check out the Children’s Festival which was going on till 20 March. To our surprise, when we headed into the Flower Dome, we were greeted by a lovely view of the blossoms – Cherry Blossoms and Plum Blossoms!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhat a visual treat for the eyes! Apparently, it had been quite challenging to bring these different kinds of blossoms in particular the Cherry Blossoms overseas for the period where they peak in blooming is really quite fleeting. But I guess the folks at Gardens by the Bay cracked the formula and we in Singapore get to enjoy this gorgeous floral display.

I recently upgraded our camera so was pleased to be able to capture these shots (still need loads of improvement, of course).

The Cherry Blossoms and Plum Blossoms thrive in really cool temperatures so it felt particularly colder than usual when we were at the Flower Dome. It was one of the times that I wished I had remembered to pack in a cardigan as Bubba later told us that she was feeling cold. So if you are planning a trip down to catch the display, please do remember a light cardigan.
