“DAHLIA DREAMS” 2018 (大丽花之梦) @ Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay Singapore
Took a stroll inside the Flower Dome recently to visit the “Dahlia Dreams” floral display. This is an annual display of the Dahlia flowers.
For the present seasonal display, it is inspired by the picturesque landscape of Chinese imperial gardens, as well as an elegant display of dahlias, camellias, lagerstroemias and bromeliads in a courtyard garden setting.
As you step into the flower dome, one is greeted by the Auspicious Southern Lions while Chinese guardian lions (also known as “Foo Dogs”) stand guard.
There are also the intricate diorama cutouts, exquisite driftwood sculptures and ornamental topiaries in the shape of dogs can be spotted in the display.
To top it off there are palace lanterns and umbrella curtains that embellish the garden.
