A festive hour of flowery photo-taking at Gardens by the Bay Dahlia Dreams 2022.
It’s less than two weeks away from the Lunar New Year, and with that, it’s time to visit the gorgeous spring blooms at Gardens by the Bay.
Dahlia Dreams 2022! The first of the annual flower displays at the Flower Dome and as always, themed and styled to welcome Chun Jie (春节).
I visited on a quiet Monday and truth be told, the exhibition is not as grand or fantastical as last year’s Poinsettia Wishes. To be clear, this is not to say that it’s no good; oriental elegance is clearly the main intention.
A classic Chinese pavilion, lots of flowery lights, and tens of colourful blooms will also keep any photographer or visitor happy.
On the latter, I think there were some 20 to 30 types of dahlias on show, with a handful starkly different from one another. Were there so many types on display last year? Have to say, I had no idea there were so many varieties too!
Welcoming the 2022 Spring Festival, with Tigers!
(Erm … are those rabbits from last year’s Mid-Autumn display?)
The Gorgeous World of Dahlias
I didn’t count, but there were at least twenty types of dahlias on show at the main display area. Or more? With most of them clearly labelled, it’s like a mini floriculture lesson for all.
Dahlia Dreams 2022 is ongoing till Feb 20, 2022. I visited using a Friends of Gardens pass. This annual pass is truly a money-saver, especially when it’s discounted!
