My parents have annual passes to the Gardens, and have taken Bubbles there a couple of times, although Roboman and I have only been there once. We were looking forward to viewing the new display, and made it an extended family outing.
The theme focused on all things that take flight - from colourful hot air balloons, airplanes, kites, seeds that disperse by wind, and even bats. The place was dotted with snippets of flight related facts, and I found it interesting to find and read them. It was unsurprising that the eye-catching hot air balloons were our favourite - they lent a touch of whimsy to the lush gardens.
These pitcher plants caught our eye, as Bubbles pointed to them and asked "Whose shoes are those?" I suppose the one in the middle does look a lot like a boot!
I felt a little giddy when I was up on the bridge in the Cloud Forest. I wonder if I am intolerant of high altitudes? Nevertheless, I loved being all the way up there, especially when it was misty and mysterious.
With the Singapore Flyer as a backdrop. Grand!
Like moths to a flame - attracted by lighted floral displays on the ground.
