Singapore Garden Festival 2014 at Gardens by the Bay

Singapore Garden Festival (SGF) is returning for its fifth installment from 16 – 24 August 2014.

Singapore Garden Festival is the first garden show to showcase creations from top award-winning garden and floral designers across the world under one roof.

Held for the first time at Gardens by the Bay, the nine-day event will showcased indoor and outdoor, exquisite garden and floral displays, created by more than 30 internationally acclaimed garden and floral designers.

This was my second time at Singapore Garden Festival. Read my previous entry here.
I headed down early in the morning on the first day of the festival. So excited for it.

The 2 early birds.

First, we embarked on the Landscape Show Gardens.
They were designed based on design principles, planting concepts and outstanding plants to achieve horticultural excellence.

Be amazed by the spectacular display.

This landscape garden caught my eyes, how I wish this was my home garden.

The garden celebrates the simplicity and beauty of the vertical line. Contained between the horizontal elements of water and timber are fine vertical lines of silver layering the space, creating depth, dimension, mood and mystery.

The Sacred Groove is a manifestation of the universal concept that a space is both spiritual and reflective.

We moved on to Community in Bloom.

As a celebration of the vibrancy of Singapore's diverse culture that is inclusive and fun, this year's Community in Bloom's Gardener's Cup will take on the theme "Fiesta". Let's take a look at these displays.

This was interesting, you can use umbrella to grow your pot of flower.

Every little things got me fascinated, I love the garden festival this year. 
So colourful.

My favourite garden display was definitely this - Sound of the forest. It has many musical instruments present in the garden.
I think I can stay here all day long, I love playing the drum.
My skill is still not that bad, can consider buying one and place at home.

We also get to learn about the different herbs and plants.

Arriving at the land of Frozen.

Let it go, let it go!
Can't hold it back any more.

Kids got to love this corner, with the musical instruments and fairytale all at Community in Bloom.

This was my ideal Balcony Gardens. It gave me a very peaceful and calm feeling, suitable for soothing personal retreat for the senses. The balacony gardens were created by local designers.

We went to Penjing & Artistic Stone showcase where a wide collection of fine bonsai, landscaping and natural stones from different regions were on display.

Proceeding indoor for more garden displays.

Too beautiful that makes you hard to resist not taking photo when you passed by.

Admire an enchanting display of beautiful flowers, creatively and delicately designed by celebrated local and international floral designers.

"Darkrai" is a floral window that opens our minds to the concept of white being the new black, whereas black is irreplaceable. Both colours appear to be conflicting, the display inspires us to do good deeds and let it shine in a weary world.

Spot the Queen.
She was hidden in the 4 different dimension. Find the correct spot and the Queen will appear.

Let the Fantasy Gardens brings you on a whimsical journey with plants, flowers, stage lighting and general props.

The magical details of a miniature garden brings out the child in all of us. It featured intricately designed gardens, created with miniature plants and furniture.

Being a big fan of Harry Potter, this particular display stood out the most to me.
Lesson time with Professor Sprout on magical plants in Greenhouse.

Samantha's Wedding.

The famous wing horse - Pegasus, guarding the fountain.

We were more or less done with the tour at The Meadow. Time to move on to Orchid Extravaganza at Flower Dome.

Grace and I were feeling excited to see the Orchid Extravaganza. Certainly not-to-be-missed, this exhibition of the region's rich and diverse heritage of orchids will leave all in awe!

We were treated to a stunning visual spectrum of colours, featuring a 10-metre-tall orchid kaleidoscope and over 18,000 orchid plants on display.

Though we were tired and our feet were sore. We felt satisfied and glad that we came for this. Every display was so beautifully done and it took our breath away. Every details of the art work was attentively take care of.

You will not go back home empty-handed, you definitely will be going home with lots of photos taken.
