Not all Chrysanthemums (菊花) are yellow. Go on, take a whiff, it actually smells refreshing.
Gardens by the Bay’s Celebration of Chrysanthemums runs from 24Sep to 10Nov, and seniors and kids enjoy free entry to Flower Dome! (Details here)
As it was the weekend for Mid Autumn Festival(中秋节), kids got to diy their own lanterns.
Every corner we turn, more Chrysanthemums sprang out to surprise us. Red, Gold, Purple, Pink and Yellow spread of Chrysanthemums!
Not only variety of colours, shapes too. There are more than 40 varieties of Chrysanthemums on display.
Selfie opportunities for families.
The feature structure at the flower bed.
With over 10,000 Chrysanthemums, everyone (especially the grandparents) is in a jolly good mood 🙂
The cheerful kiddos from Cheekiemonkies.
One moment, the kids are posing at Moon Gate, the next moment bullying big brother Hong Peng 🙂
Another unique flower (not Chrysanthemum), seems like it belongs to the cold temperate weather, love the contrasting colours.
Outside the Flower Dome, lanterns of all sizes and shapes continue to fascinate visitors.
This is the Year of the Goats, but the whole safari has been brought to Gardens by the Bay!
This Floral clock is hard to miss, and the timing is accurate too.
As the sky turns darker, the Zodiac lanterns become more mesmerising.
My personal favourite should be 嫦娥 (Chang2 Er2).
Even the resident otters are showcased, hunting for carps?
Food and drinks options.
As we walk towards Dragonfly Lake, Chameleon, Komodo dragons greeted us.
Even Dragonfly bridge looks especially charming with her arches of illumination.
But the highlights must be the bright and majestic floats (Dragonboats and Palace) on the lake.
Near the carpark, we love the colourful arches overhead. So vibrant and radiant.
