Another Visit to our Beautiful Botanic Gardens (Main Entrance at Tanglin)

This times we parked at the side nearer the main entrance. It was a pity that there was construction and cleaning going on when we were there and a lot of the path was blocked. We then made a promise to come back another day to explore. The most impressive sight was this. I felt like I was in England and not Singapore. So beautiful and the wet ground added to the cool atmosphere.

Will go back to the beginning now and post the pictures I took as we walked from the car park. The first thing I noticed was the very cool imprint of leaves on the ground.

Lovely water lily pads at the entrance where there is information and a seating area for visitors.

The reading lady.  The gardens are definitely made more interesting with all the art.

Oh if only we had so much space all over the island. I feel calmer just looking at all the green.

    Did you dine at Au Jardin by Les Amis? That place is brilliant, and their wine list reads like a dictionary! 🙂

    The last time I went, they only served lunches on Fridays. 3-course for about $45, which weighing it against ambience, service and quality of food, is a good deal, personally 🙂 Their buffet brunch is also very tempting 😀
