This past weekend Graham and I took a visit to the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The Agri-Horticultural Society established the garden on it's present site in 1859, later handing it over to the government for maintenance. Covering approximately 74 hectares (183 acres), this amazing garden is only a 30 minute walk from the major shopping hub of Orchard Road. Open daily from 5am to midnight and free to get in, it is a must see when visiting Singapore. Some of the attractions within the garden are The Swan Lake, The Visitor Centre, The Botany Centre, Ginger Garden, Rainforest, Evolution Garden and the area called National Flower of Singapore Vanda Miss Joaquim. This lovely pink (and very tall) orchid, Miss Joacquim, was chosen to be the National flower of Singapore in 1981.
WHO IS LYNNY?
My name is Lynn, Lynny or even Lynnykansas. Blame the latter on a "Dorothy" Halloween Costume and a very funny kid a number of years ago (yes, that's you Meg!). I am a Brit who has spent many years in the USA, but is now experiencing life in Singapore for awhile.
More about me and why the blog is called It's Lynny Kansas.......
