A short visit to the magnificent botanic gardens of Singapore summarized in this colorful collage.

Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore and a keen naturalist, set up the first Botanic Garden on Government Hill at Fort Canning in 1822 mainly to introduce into cultivation economic crops such as nutmeg, clove and cocoa. This Garden was closed in 1829.

The Gardens at its present site was founded in 1859 by an Agri-Horticultural Society, and was later handed over to the government for maintenance. From an ornamental garden with roads, terraces, a bandstand and even a small zoo, it has come a long way in evolving into a leading equatorial botanic garden of 63 hectares.

The 150-year old Singapore Botanic Gardens is a star visitor attraction for the sophisticated traveler as well as the local resident. This Gardens possesses an array of botanical and horticultural attractions with a rich history and a wonderful plant collection of worldwide significance. Complementing these unique resources are sensitive developments providing visitors educational and recreational facilities.

Hi Tsilla,
Wonderful collage of these colorful flowers.
Nice to see flowers this time of year as Europe is full of snow.
But it happened that both our countries are still blooming flowers!
All very sharp and in perfect focusing.
Well done, my friend, and wish you a prosperous New Year 2011.
