Singapore Garden Festival 2014 – Asia’s biggest flower and garden show is now at Gardens by the Bay! This year’s event is held at the Bay South Gardens, spanning three areas: The Meadow, Supertree Grove and Flower Dome. Enjoy beautiful photos from the show here.

This is a big festival, so I won’t even attempt to cover the event in its entirety. Enjoy these photos that were snapped during my quick walk around many extensively-themed displays.

The last Garden Festival was held at Suntec Convention Centre. Well, I think the festival could find no better home now.

There are some cuter sights that will delight the young ones.

There are 8 balcony gardens, which could set off some new ideas of how to beautify your home. But I was more interested at the gardens built next to it. The Community in Bloom garden displays:

Five teams are competing for the Gardeners’ Cup. Certainly some unconventional ideas were explored here (There was a display that uses several umbrellas)

Apart from vibrant sights, there were some fragrant scents lingering about. These shelves of fruits, for example.

There’s one garden – Sound of the Forest – that’s rather interactive.

Once the morning sun was out in full intensity, I moved into the tents to view the Fantasy Gardens. Along with the Floral Windows to the World, I would say these are the key highlights at the Meadow.

The Celebrations! Floral Table Settings featured some refreshing ideas for that exotically opulent dining experience.

Dining in Mangrove – designed by Law Guek Chu. Exotic, almost dark fantasy-like, which quickly reminds one of Pan’s Labyrinth.

As the event takes place all over the Bay South Gardens, I would suggest setting aside at least 3 hours to leisurely explore the festival grounds. For the first 1.5-2 hours, walk around the Meadow. Spend at least an hour at the Flower Dome for Orchid Extravaganza.
