Dahlia Dreams Floral Display @ Flower Dome : Year of the Monkey

Chinese New Year is just around the corner. That means there is a new Floral display at Flower Dome. This year the theme is Dahlia Dreams Floral Display, where the Dahlias from Mexico will co-mingle with Chinese tradition to bring you a whole new Chinese New Year flavour at the Flower Dome.
Freezing Cold
Stepping into the Flower Dome, you will be greeted by a display of Dahlia and monkeys as a back drop. Bewarned, we were there on a bright sunny day and it is freezing cold!

Step close and as your eye wonder on the flower bed, you would realised that there is a distinct lack of red in the gardens. Rather, the main flower bed is transformed into a valley of green that is homeland to Monkeys. Quite appropriate , given that we are in the year of the Monkey.

Monkeys in all shapes and sizes makes the Flower Dome home

Our favourite would be the majestic wooden monkeys.

The green monkeys came in a close second.

Although I think kids would probably fancy the plush monkeys hanging on the tree!

The Cave

Right in the middle of the Flower Bed is a walk through cave. Looking out at the opening and you probably would think you are transported to some mystical icy forest.

Really... don't believe ?

Try yourself lah!
