Singapore Botanic Gardens

Singapore Botanic Gardens at its present site was founded in 1859 by an Agri-Horticultural Society. Planned as a leisure garden and ornamental park, the Society organised flower shows and horticultural fetes. And over the years, the Gardens is steering on a long term upgrading programme to provide better public facilities and amenities. New attractions, such as the Ginger Garden, Evolution Garden, Coolhouse and the Children's Garden are being added to keep the Gardens relevant as a leading destination.

Upon arriving at the main entrance of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, we managed to chance upon this growing room where they showcase the process of the growing seedlings and also a month exhibition called 'Two Minds, One Theory' which starting from 01st August 2009 - 31st August 2009. (for more details, click here) .

Look at these lovely flowers, even though the weather is kind of gloomy but they still bloom well at sight. It really makes you feel great when looking at them.

This gazebo is a Victorian cast-iron garden shelter. It was built in the 1850s and stood for many years in the grounds of Old Admiralty House in Grange Road. In 1969 it was dismantled and re-erected in the Gardens at the entrance to the Rain Forest. We didn't go anywhere further into the Garden except till the Swan Lake Gazebo where Rey can feed the fishes and turtles in the pond as well as spend sometime admiring the Swans in the lake.
