A while ago, I tagged along with Kless for her media invite to Take Flight @ Gardens by the Bay, you can read her post here. Took the opportunity to really take the time and enjoy the beautiful display of flowers in both the domes.
The main theme is cactus in the Flower Dome and moth orchids in the Cloud Forest.
This definitely looked like a few dancers piled up together in a modern dance.
This cactus was huge. A more common looking cactus.
“Mickey Mouse” cactus.
Cactus with a nice floral hair-band.
A close up look at the spines, which are highly modified leaves. Besides protecting the cacti against herbivores, spines prevent water loss by reducing air flow close to the cactus and providing some shade.
The biggest cactus in the Flower Dome. Didn’t register the name or type, but if you tell me it was a tree, I would have believe you.
And this furry cactus had many of the visitors squirm with discomfort. Doesn’t it looked like some animals enslaved in a magical cactus?
Cactus flowers are rare and not particularly pretty.
Other photos around the dome.
Moving on to the Cloud Forest. The main attraction for the girls remains to be the 35-metre tall indoor waterfall.
But this is what I was looking for – Orchids.
A closer look at the most beautiful flower in the entire world. That is my biased opinion.
The colors and the arrangement of the petals are simply beautiful.
I wish I can do an entire post on just the different types of orchids in Singapore.
Maybe I should one day…
What trip is complete without the ladies?
