Gardens by the Bay - Autumn Harvest

Took an early train ride to Gardens (Bayfront MRT Station). And recently this is what I will see on the train when traveling with the family. Heads down, totally engrossed in their private world of mobile games/ shows. I guess that is the world we live in today. Singapore has been voted as one of the top smartphone market per capita. We contributed our fair share.

Happening from Sep 1 – Oct 29, Gardens by the Bay has set up The Season of Abundance Autumn Harvest. A lavish flower field saturated in rich hues of orange, red, gold and green.

At first sight, you won’t be alone if you are wondering did Halloween arrived early. I was pleasantly shocked by the numerous pumpkins all around the place. Will the place be transformed into a big Halloween Night surprise on the very last night of Oct 29? I would certainly hope so.

Got to know that one of our friend’s company actually did all the pumpkins and vegetable props. Should I ask for some to keep in the new house? Maybe a Halloween corner? Idea? Nice?

We have been to the Flower Dome for many times (thanks to various blessings), but strangely this is the first time I paid more attention to some of the sculptures in the Dome than before. And some of them are really nice.

First we have the Alice in Wonderland series.

No Flower Dome visit is complete without some flower photos, right? =)
