The Flower Dome is part of the Gardens by the Bay, Singapore. As the name suggests, the whole garden is enclosed in a beautiful glass house and the temperature inside is kept cool with air conditioning (see the following two photos).
It is a world of perpetual spring, and features plants from the Mediterranean and semi-arid subtropical regions.
The following photo features the gigantic and magnificent Agave guiengola, which is commonly known as Maguey Plateado in Mexico.
The Flower Dome is one of the icons of Bay South Garden, with its beautiful design. It replicates the cool-dry climate of Mediterranean regions like South Africa, California and parts of Spain and Italy.
The Flower Dome houses a wonderful collection of desert plants from all over the world, showcasing the special adaptations of plants to dry and harsh environments, such as the blooming cactus flower in the following photo.
Meanwhile, in the colourful Flower Field, changing displays reflect different seasons, festivals and themes.
One can lose track of time engrossed in taking photos of the lush and brilliant blooms, as I did.
