warning – this is a photo post. you might like to look away now if you have a fear of colours,
are a man, or if the sheer beauty of nature literally takes your breathe away.
I brought my grandma and grandaunt to the conservatories at singapore’s relatively-young gardens by the bay for a look at tulipmania on mother’s day, and we spent a ridiculous amount of time wowing and fawning over the varieties of succulents, cacti and blooms there.
it’s a beautiful place: exotic, luxuriant growth encased in bright natural light (and air-conditioned to boot).
we’ve come so far in aesthetics and appreciation for the little details – I truly never expected to have a place nearly this gorgeous and well-designed back home, and it makes me more than a little proud.
I’m going to stop here so y’all can flower-gaze in peace. colours ahead!
a little interruption: how velvety are those petals. and that color!
I know I mentioned tulipmania – I promise to show you some photos soon (this is the first of three posts in the series) – but I thought the conservatory in itself was beautiful, and brilliant beyond any description I could possibly contrive.
if you’re in singapore – go and have a look. I did a far bit of scoffing myself before I came – completely foolish.
