I was very much hoping to visit the Flower Dome this week. Dale Chihuly’s glass sculptures are on display and this would have been my first time to experience the man’s genius. Covid19 has gotten more active here lately so I’d heed the advice to stay at home.
There’s a virtual reality tool that will soon be available in the exhibit’s website, so until I could safely visit the display (it ends in August), I’d be looking forward to the VR for now.
There are indoor gardens in many tropical countries, but to have one that is massive and magically displays for months cool-weather flowers like tulips, daffodils, lupins and cherry blossoms, is truly special. And where else in the tropics have you heard of century-old olive trees thriving and bearing fruits? Nowhere, only in Singapore’s Flower Dome.
I’ve searched my photo archive and it dawned on me that I visited the dome only 6 times since it opened in 2012. The floral display changes themes a few times a year and I clearly took this for granted. I missed so many. For someone who claims she adores flowers, only visiting 6 times in 9 years is unforgivable!
When the Covid situation here gets better, and as inspired by the several beautiful WordPress posts of DR of Lonely Travelog, and my dear friend Karen of Milestones & Wanderlust, who also loves flowers (but visits each time the theme changes), I promise to buy the annual ticket for the dome.
Meanwhile, here are some photos I took during the 6 times (boo!!) that I went to the dome:
Hopefully my next post would be on Chihuly’s Glass in Bloom exhibit! -xoxo-
