Rose Romance 2023 | Gardens by the Bay

Visiting Rose Romance 2023, Gardens by the Bay mid-year rosy floral show.

‘Right, time for another quick picture post. Quick for I’m superbly late in putting this up—this floral show started a fortnight ago. Quick also as in I must get this done ASAP as the pics have been sitting on my hard disk since last Monday.

The Rose Romance 2023 floral show is ongoing at Gardens by the Bay Flower Dome till July 16, 2023. A celebration of the “Queen of Flowers” and all the romanticism associated with it, Rose Romance 2023 alsoshowcases the rustic charms of Italy’s Puglia region, i.e., the “heel” of the Italian boot. Architectural highlights of the show include trulli miniatures, these being traditional limestone houses with conical roofs that are found everywhere in the hill towns of Puglia.

Since roses are, you know, associated with weddings, there’s a picturesque Italian balcony at the heart of everything and when I visited, there were soon-to-weds taking photos on it, in full wedding gowns and suits and all.

Overall, this floral show has an idyllic, summertime ambience. Despite the trulli huts, it doesn’t have the grandeur or excitement of some of the other Flower Dome exhibitions too. But for some visitors, I believe that’s where the charm is.

The following are the pictures I took. Before I begin, an “advertorial” statement, or should I say, a review supplement.

All pictures are unedited outside of resizing and the addition of my watermark. All were shot using the new vivo V27 5G smartphone too, which I recently reviewed.

This mid-range smartphone is really quite a marvel, as far as its camera setup is concerned. Day or night, it shoots awesome pictures. The overall output is also reliable, to the extent that I am comfortable putting up pictures taken by it without any post-editing.

If you’re creating content, this camera smartphone is a valuable asset.

The rosy displays right after the main entrance. Unlike other exhibitions of recent years, there’s no grand display here this time round. But the elegant arrangements were still popular with photo-taking visitors.

Roses have an indescribable sophistication and beauty to them, don’t they?
Rose Romance 2023 Cupid
Since roses are so associated with love, cupid makes an appearance. (The statue looks a bit snotty, though)

I love the brilliant yellow ones. The purplish ones exude a certain mysterious beauty too.

Trulli Huts of Italy | Rose Romance 2023
The above-mentioned trulli huts from Italy’s Puglia Region, complete with mini-garden display. You know, I wonder what it’s like to actually live in one. Would the limestone structure be cooling?

I saw at least two of these arches and they are illuminated after sunset. The perfect backdrop for a family/couple photo.
