Those who had taken a trip down to the Flower Dome were awed by the stunning landscape of dahlias, begonias and other blooms against the backdrop of a lofty seven-metre-tall mountain. Monkey-shaped topiaries could be seen as visitors strolled through the cavern with unexpected surprises and appreciated the various elements of Chinese arts and culture infuse in this floral display.



Spring is magical with flowers.
PHOTO: Spring is magical with flowers. The trees blossom and wild flowers cascade down foothills.  Personal gardens and small farms are inspired by the new warmth.  After a long snowy Winter, cherry trees blossom, bugs stretch their wings and bees get to work.
Cherry Blossoms and Dahlia Dreams leggings carry that same magic and they are sprinkled with the very plants that are part of our little mountain lives.  The flowers and orchards we frolic in.  The places we grew up and now watch our kids grow and learn.  Wearing them magically makes you twirl in circles in the grass and find animals in the clouds.

Dahlia Dreams” was also the first in a series of music-themed floral displays at Gardens by the Bay that year. The floral displays come to life with the energetic beats of Taiko drums, the retro tunes of the jukebox, and the pulsating rhythm of tribal dance.
