So we got back from our wonderful trip to Singapore and Malaysia last weekend. It was hectic as we wanted to cover as much as possible but was worth it. The one thing that amazed me about Singapore was the amount of greenery on the roads and surrounding areas. The second thing(actually the most impressive thing) was how orchids were growing in Singapore. Any place you go to, they have orchids in display. Just like we have chrysanthemums or roses bunches here in India, the Singaporeans have orchids instead. I never expected this in the trip and was completely awed by the display of these beautiful flowers.
We were just wowed by the variety. I have always been impressed by the orchids and wanted to try growing them here. Never started off as it would be pretty expensive to begin with. I also do not know the quality of the plants that they sell at some of the local nurseries. Just last week, a fellow Indian blogger had written about Orchids in her garden. Now that is very interesting and coincidental. It is like a message from the flowers saying that I need to start growing them here. Not sure how they will handle the Bangalore weather though. Let us see. I got to see only a small section of the garden due to lack of time and energy. It was a hot and humid day. So the number of pictures are limited. Please do click and see the full size pictures to enjoy the beauty of the orchids.
One of the most impressive displays of Orchids was at the Changi airport which we saw when we were leaving Singapore. Unfortunately I did not capture good enough photos to be put on display here. Thankfully, our orchid master has some pictures of the Airport Orchids here.
