Flowery Fun Times with Nursery Rhymes @ Gardens by the Bay

Do you know the first known compilation of English nursery rhymes was believed to be published in 1774?

It was entitled " Tommy Thumb's Song Book' and contained famous nursery rhymes such as London Bridge is falling down and Rock-a-bye baby.

This was one of the facts I discovered upon a journey to Gardens By the Bay latest floral display : Flowery Fun Times with Nursery Rhymes.

Nursery Rhymes is 3rd tale in Gardens By the Bay story telling journey. The floral display has always been my favourite photo opportunity hunting ground. This edition is no different.

I like how the recent themes at the Flower Dome cater to the younger ones. The idea of infusing iconic Nursery Rhymes displays to the Flower Bed is excellent. Adults can enjoy the floral display while the kids can spot their favourite Nursery Rhymes.

Gardens by the Bay gives an international flavor to the latest displays. Comprising of well known rhymes like Mary has a little lamb to Asian rhymes like The Little Bee, both international and local visitors would surely find a rhyme that they will be familiar with.

There is no London Bridge or Rock-a-bye Baby, but with over 16 nursery rhymes , you will be spoil for choice. Don't forget to read the signs if you are unfamiliar with the rhymes.
Here is a rundown of what to expect from Nursery Rhymes @ Gardens by the Bay.

Other than the beautiful displays, take a look around at the little details. Personally , I think the Flower Dome is an excellent spot for those seeking photo taking therapy. It is my favourite spot to unwind after a tough day at work.

Given the quality of the floral displays, I am glad to be a Friends of The Garden. A family of 4 cost $180 (2 adults and 2 children) and it gives you access to the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and OCBC skyway all year round. Other perks include restaurant and retail discount , exclusive invites and free parking for 2 hours. Not too shabby I think.

Don't forget the flowers too. The Fox Gloves are absolutely beautiful.
