Photo Diary: Flower Dome

Marina Gardens By The Bay: Flower Dome

Enter a world of perpetual spring, where unique plants bloom in an ever changing display of flowers. Discover plants from the Mediterranean and semi-arid subtropical regions. Now get ready to be amazed by nature.

Upon entering to the Flower dome, you'll be standing in awe of nature, as it displays spectacular and innovative design, as it is one of the icons in the Bay South Garden. The Flower Dome replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean regions like South Africa, California and parts of Spain and Italy.  Home to a collection of plants from deserts all over the world, it showcases the adaptations of plants to arid environments.

Enjoy a cooling and leisurely stroll through the Flower Dome and experience the eerie profile of the baobabs, surrounded by fascinating succulents. Immerse yourself in the spectacular view of the Marina reservoir skyline, as you embark on your journey through the Mediterranean Basin, South West Australia, South Africa, Central Chile and California.  You'll discover amazing plants and flowers from different corners of the globe, and you'll be amazed by how different parts of the trees are used in daily lives across different cultures.
Here are some of the plants that fascinates me during my tour around the flower dome. It really feels nice to be able to see the beauty of such rare plants and be able to experience touching and smelling them.
Here's another feature that the Flower Dome offers. A great sculpture made by a French Sculpture,  Bruno Catalano; the "La Famille de Voyageurs" - A Travelling Family. It depicts a family visiting Gardens by the Bay before heading to the airport for their jurney home. As they depart the Tropical Garden City, they take with them beautiful memories and leave a part of themselves behind. 
It is inspired by the universal theme of travel. His eye-catching works, with their dashed bodies and deliberate lack of volume, invite you to mentally reconstruct the possibility of the human potential.
