Gardens By The Bay – Flower Dome

2 Comments

Just like the name, yes it s a big dome with many plants, flowers, and even beautifully arranged cactus inside. My favorite: the bottle trees of course. There are so many bottle trees here. Bottle trees come from Australia, so they are placed in Australian Garden. Bottle tree is a tree that has it’s trunk shaped like a bottle. We first saw this in Bottle Tree Park (only 1 bottle tree in Bottle Tree Park which is quite disappointing), but in here there are many of them.

This is what we saw when we first enter the Flower Dome, some of them were unique bottle trees

When we looked down, we saw that the hall were decorated in Halloween theme….with pumpkins and scarecrows placed in the center. Well, perhaps Halloween and Thanksgiving Day were combined together, because we also saw many crops, like corns, squash, garlic, etc……

We looked down, and this was what we saw

Taking pictures from the third floor

But before going down, we explored the upstairs first and found many gardens such as Australian Garden, African Garden, Californian Garden, etc. I don’t remember each of them precisely (since lil boy kept walking and running and jumping here and there, and made me confused of where we were). I will try to arrange them in order according to their habitat, but maybe not 100% correct. These pictures were all taken in the third floor. The contour of this place is like a hill with it’s ups and downs and places look like mezzanine floors, so I can’t exactly say that we were in same floor all the time. Long wooden chairs are available almost everywhere, and toilet is located in front of Mediterranean Garden.

All the gardens, but Californian Garden was under renovation when we came

SOUTH AFRICAN GARDEN

Love the color of those grey leaves

MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN

Now, let’s go down to the FLOWER FIELD

As the name, it is a field full of beautiful and colorful flowers everywhere…..

We hurried ourselves to the center of the hall, which was full of crops, Halloween decoration, and people…..it was sooo…..hard to take pictures because people were everywhere. People gathered around near the best spots, so we often see strangers in our photos too…..but I think we made some good pictures too as you can see below.

And now the flower field photos: in here, lil boy enjoyed taking pictures of the flowers than being a model. So, most of the time he was busy trying to be a professional photographer. So, I became the model……hahaha……

Me, me,me, and me again…..enough of me I guess………..

All right, here comes our photographer….somehow he thought this was rather funny too, so he sometimes laughed while taking all those photos……

Now we go up.up,up…to the SUCCULENT GARDEN andTHE BAOBAS

The highest place in Flower Dome

Time to go home cos we were already so tired after walking the whole day……but before that, lil boy had another mission not yet accomplished….

Buying this $4.5 French Vanilla Ice Cream……

What a great day….we love Gardens By The Bay. Will we come back again? Maybe not……too expensive for us……

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.
