Look of the Day – Martian

I dropped by the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay for a visit, and saw the gardeners setting up the seasonal Flower Field for Chinese New Year. The Oriental theme was a sharp contrast to my futuristic outfit for the day, and I certainly looked like a Martian who just landed on the wrong planet. Heh.

Red Alert

To usher in the Year of the Snake, the “Spring Celebrations” New Year floral display at the Flower Dome will feature 8,000 colourful blooms including peonies, camellias, cherry blossoms, chrysanthemums, orchids, dahlias, azaleas, and kumquat plants. Nestled amongst the festive flora are oriental pavilions and 200 year old bonsai plants – I think they must have time-travelled here too.

3-metre kumquat snake spotted!

It looks good enough to eat…yumz

A Martian snake joins in the fun

Red is the colour of the New Year

There are more than 8 varieties of kumquat (citrus) plants on display for the Chinese New Year period, such as this Giant Golden Citrus which is bigger that my fist! And I am not that petite you know. :D

Buddha’s Hand Citrus

Can’t wait for these beauties to bloom and their fragrance to permeate the air. It always tells me New Year is around the corner.

Splashes of red all around the Gardens

Giant lanterns greet you from the entrance all the way to the Flower Dome. So follow the lanterns!

Planet by Marc Quinn

I spotted another boy Martian at the Gardens!
This giant sculpture of a sleeping baby by internationally acclaimed British artist Marc Quinn was recently unveiled at The Meadows. One of the artist’s most important works, it plays on the illusion of weightlessness (it is entirely supported by the baby’s hand despite the huge size) and Man’s vulnerability. It also forms the newest addition to the 40+ artworks at Gardens by the Bay.

Can’t wait for New Year to come – gives me a valid reason to erm, SHOP! (Hope chum D is not reading this…heehee)

Here’s Martian Spunktitud3 saying toodles for now…come by the Flower Dome to admire the spring blooms soon!

Photography: Yellow Flora Macro

Had my first try at macro photography…not bad at all! Practising with stationary flora first before progressing to moving insects…when’s the mating season? Haha *cheeky*

My fave of the lot; it’s so vibrant, so full of life in contrast with the duller green leaves in the background

This feels like the Alps with the silver leaves

A bright sunny bloom always makes me happy!

This is fun! More to come…:)
