The best $68 I’ve spent in Singapore has not been on food, clothing or any kind of travel. My best investment has been my annual pass to Gardens by the Bay. The gardens, inside and out, are a photographer’s dream. They beckon me back at least once a month to see what’s new and blooming in this wildly growing tropical environment. The domes, the flowers, the Supertrees, the paths along the water … together they create a huge visual palette to pick and choose from, whatever my mood. The gardens are a nature lover’s dream, inspirational and miraculous on both a grand and infinitesimal level.
Yesterday, the gardens showcased flowers and begonias in dual celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Singapore’s 48th birthday. Nature was throwing a party, setting off its own version of blooming fireworks to rival those of National Day.
