Gardens By the Bay Singapore Stories Floral Display
In celebration of Singapore’s golden jubilee at the Gardens By the Bay, 10 local folklore are brought to life through the creative use of orchids and other flowers in “From Tales to Legends: Discover Singapore Stories” – a SG50-commemorative floral display in the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay. The variety of orchids is impressive, many of them I am viewing for the first time. These exhibits are on display till 13 September 2015.
Designed by award-winning Singaporean landscape architect, Damian Tang, and featuring more than 8,000 orchid plants, the colourful floral showcase recollects the many tales and legends that surround this city-island and framed them within postage stamp borders. Discover the stories behind Tanjong Pagar, Redhill, Sisters’ Island, Pulau Ubin, Kusu Island, Sang Nila Utama and the Singapore Stone – as told through the language of plants.
